Summary

The Lethal Stuff of Legends 
For Jessica Tregarth, an unexpected invitation to visit her grandfather in England is a wonderful surprise—an opportunity to open doors to a family past that have always been closed to her. But sinister acts greet her arrival. A stranger tries to steal her luggage and later accosts her in Salisbury Cathedral. Mysterious villains pursue her through Cornwall, their motive and intentions unknown. Jessica's only clue is an antique heirloom she possesses, an ancient ring that bears the Tregarth family crest. And her only ally is handsome gothic novelist David Randall—her self-proclaimed protector—who appears from seemingly out of nowhere to help her in her desperate—attempt to solve a five hundred-year-old, puzzle. For something from out of the cloudy mists of Arthurian lore has come back to plague a frightened American abroad. And a remarkable truth about a fabled king and a medieval treasure could ultimately make Jess Tregarth very rich...or very dead.

    Amateur sleuth Charlie Davies is back again, and this time she's taking on a Russian gangster. Maybe. 
    Charlie's boss, the less-than-friendly Adam Baxter, has received information that local club owner Lonny Lionel is, in fact, an escaped foreign criminal - but that's not the kind of thing you can just come out and ask someone. Adam wouldn't normally ask Charlie to help him (she's not exactly his star employee), but she happens to have an 'in' - her friend is dating the man in question. 
    As if that's not enough to deal with, James McKenzie - Charlie's on-again, off-again worst enemy - is being strangely friendly towards her, and now her other nemesis (her former best friend, Celia) is back on the scene, looking to befriend her too. If she doesn't watch out, Charlie is going to run out of adversaries. 
    Oh, apart from that gangster she's spying on, who will torture and murder her if he finds out what she's doing. (If he actually does turn out to be a criminal, that is.) 
    When she stumbles upon a dead body at a local construction site, Charlie starts to think that this time she might be in over her head. 
    Not that it would be that hard - she is pretty short. 
     
    ***Contains some swearing.***

    Zack Decker wanted only one thing in life: to fight as a Marine Pathfinder. But his temper and his loathing for careerist officers cost him dearly. Forced into early retirement, with a wife who left him long ago, no job, no friends and no future, the former sergeant crawled into a bottle and stayed there, moving from planet to planet, looking for some reason to keep on living. Until, that is, he wandered into a bar owned by an old Marine buddy who offered to help. On the run after killing a corrupt cop, and nowhere to hide, he accepted. 
     
    Decker would have done better to head for the hills, or surrender to the militia, however old friends could be persuasive and he soon found himself signing on as security officer of a starship with dubious owners and a dubious crew, doing things for his new employer that tested the old saying 'Once a Marine, always a Marine.' Curiosity was Decker's other major failing and in short order he was on the run, hunted by a shadowy government organisation, and in possession of a secret that could destroy the Commonwealth. It was a secret to die for, and the people on his trail wanted to make sure he did. Along the way, they forgot that he could still fight like one of the Few...
