FROM THE BACK COVER: 
For over a decade, JD Devereaux's son has been raised to think his father is dead. But he's not. At least, not yet. 
Private investigator Sydney Brennan agrees to track down Devereaux because she'd do anything to give her friend a chance at knowing his father. Of course, Sydney believes the most dangerous thing she'll face in the Florida Panhandle is memories of her most recent investigation. She couldn't be more wrong. 
Devereaux is a man on the run. He doesn't want Sydney's help, dodging her at every turn, and he refuses to tell her who's after him or why. Soon dead bodies start dropping, and Sydney isn't about to let Devereaux become the next victim. But when they're outgunned and outmaneuvered, will Sydney's quick wits and stubborn resolve be enough to keep them alive?

    Peter Bannerman, veterinarian and amateur detective, deserves a summer vacation. Peter and his family head to a remote fishing lodge in northern Manitoba for a canoeing trip with his champion sniffer dog, Pippin. But a series of incidents color their plans. The lodge’s sled team of huskies has been poisoned and, at the same time, a floatplane crashes into the lake, killing the pilot and both passengers. While Peter works to save the huskies, it is discovered that the plane crash wasn’t an accident. It was murder.
    		 
    It’s been a hot and dry summer, and one morning the Bannerman family wakes up to find a forest fire spreading quickly. They manage to dodge the conflagration, making it back to the lodge before it becomes cut off from the outside world. Peter soon figures out that the murderer, who probably also poisoned the huskies, must be among the other guests or staff trapped with them at the lodge. The power fails. The now-enormous fire draws nearer. Can Peter discover the culprit in time?

    The ME ruled her death an accident. He was dead wrong.
     
    When Mary Jane Bennett is found dead in her bed— alone, strangled by her own scarf, and with every door in the house locked — the medical examiner rules her death accidental, the result of a sex game gone horribly awry. State police decline to investigate further, but Queensbridge Police Chief Caleb Crane doesn't buy for a minute that his good friend died this way, so he undertakes his own investigation. Facing town councilors afraid of bad publicity, an angry medical examiner, and his own personal demons, he labors to solve what he believes is the first-ever murder in his pastoral Berkshire Hills village. Complicating things: the list of suspects includes some of the people to whom he is closest — including his own wife.
