Summary

"'You have committed a vile and savage act, one that any other nation would punish with death. Our punishment, on the other hand, will only be to give you what you want. You have sought to live in a world without boundaries of civilization, and such a world shall henceforth be your dwelling place.'"

 
A cold-hearted murderer. A vicious abuser. A young man hiding a shameful secret. A bewildered immigrant. A pure-minded spy.

 
All of these men have found their appointed places at Mercy Life Prison, where it is easy to tell who your enemies are. But a new visitor to Mercy is about to challenge decades-old customs. Now these men's worst enemies may be hiding behind masks . . . and so may their closest allies.

 
A runner-up in the Rainbow Awards 2014, the book bundle "Mercy's Prisoner" can be read on its own or as the first volume in the Life Prison series. Friendship, desire between men, and the costs of corruption and integrity are examined in this multicultural speculative fiction series, which is inspired by prison life at the end of the nineteenth century.

    Welcome to a dystopian criminal paradise where punishment gets shelved for decades later. Old-school detective Fromstein must transition to cyber policework in a legal system too backed-up and broken to salvage. During wintertime in a city full of freezing hearts, he invents his own form of corruption to fight crime. That includes passing justice along to vigilantes and telling paramedics when to drive slow. 
    Fromstein has a new mouthy partner and an impossible murder case: a dead woman in a ditch who dressed for the wrong continent and took the bullet for fun. Desperate for clues, he may succumb to internet addiction right there on the crime scene. Meanwhile, Fromstein's whalelike partner, Wesley, searches his pockets for food and other unmentionable stimulations. But if Fromstein solves a case this cold, he may switch on judge-mode for life.

    British Intelligence Service agent Davina Graham falls in love with the KGB defector she has been ordered to debrief in this cold war thriller   British operative Davina Graham’s life is her work. Her latest assignment is her most daunting. For the past five months, she’s been trying to gain the confidence of Ivan Sasanov—and against her better judgment, she’s falling in love with him. Sasanov, a top KGB agent who defected to America, has an Achilles heel: He desperately misses the family he left behind in Russia. In exchange for information, his wife and daughter must be brought to England and given asylum. But the KGB is already on to him—he barely escapes an assassination attempt. And now his wife has been arrested. With Sasanov’s daughter, Irina, in imminent danger, Davina knows there’s only one way to save the family of the man she loves.   Shifting between multiple viewpoints, this complex Cold War thriller will keep readers guessing as a diabolical chess game of espionage and intrigue plays out on a global stage. For Sasanov, it means returning to the country he betrayed. For Davina, a vulnerable woman in a place where she is now the hunted, it means risking everything for a future she may not live to see.  The Defector is the 1st book in the Davina Graham Thrillers, but you may enjoy reading the series in any order.
