What is it about:

Colorado Deputy Sergeant David Wolf's world is twisted when he receives word his brother has committed suicide in the Alps of Italy.

Devastation and resentment over his only sibling's selfish act quickly gives way to a nagging suspicion that he isn't getting the whole truth. Conviction alone is enough to pull Wolf from pressing events in his ski resort home of Rocky Points, Colorado, to the entirely foreign land of Northern Italy, and into a more deadly situation than he could have possibly imagined.

With the help of a beautiful young officer of the Carabinieri, Wolf must piece together what happened on that last fateful night of his brother's life without ruffling too many feathers, or paying the ultimate price.

A gritty tale of international mystery, Foreign Deceit is a visceral adventure that will keep you guessing until the final pages.


Deputy Sergeant David Wolf has been waiting sixteen years for today's opportunity to follow in the footsteps of his late father -- to become Sheriff of Sluice County, Colorado. What he's offered, however, isn't what he's expecting. And for Wolf, refusing turns out to be harder, and much deadlier, than anticipated.

When a rich and powerful enemy corrupts the SCSD from within, Wolf becomes hunted by his own department, along with a special forces killing machine who's psychotic lust for blood is never denied.

In this action-packed second David Wolf novel, Wolf draws on all his skills to evade certain death in the high Rocky Mountain forest, and in the process unveils a disturbing mystery. One that if he can unravel, will do no less than rewrite his entire past, and ensure he's around to see his future.

The Forgotten Girls by Sara Blaedel
The Forgotten Girls
By: Sara Blaedel
5 stars

What is it about:
In a forest in Denmark, a ranger discovers the fresh corpse of an unidentified woman. A large scar on one side of her face should make the identification easy, but nobody has reported her missing. After four days, Louise Rick—the new commander of the Missing Persons Department—is still without answers. But when she releases a photo to the media, an older woman phones to say that she recognizes the woman as Lisemette, a child she once cared for in the state mental institution many years ago. Lisemette, like the other children in the institution, was abandoned by her family and branded a "forgotten girl." But Louise soon discovers something more disturbing: Lisemette had a twin, and both girls were issued death certificates over 30 years ago. As the investigation brings Louise closer to her childhood home, she uncovers more crimes that were committed—and hidden—in the forest, and finds a terrible link to her own past that has been carefully concealed.

The city is depending on him, though. The body of a beautiful teenager is fished from a local river, and soon Sam finds himself on the trail of a killer who is as perplexing as he is savage.
