Summary

In the second installment of Susan McBride’s Debutante Dropout mystery series, Dallas heiress Andrea Kendricks must expose a high-society assassin … before she becomes the killer’s next target. 
Website designer and high-society rebel Andrea Kendricks would never have gotten involved with ego-in-pumps lifestyle hostess Marilee Mabry if it weren’t for the underhanded machinations of Andy’s upper-crust mama. But thanks to Mother Cissy, Andy’s donning designer duds to attend a launch party at the intolerable domestic diva’s new Dallas TV studio—and she’s on hand to witness the celebration site go up in flames! 
Then Andy finds Marilee’s daughter, seemingly lifeless. Even though iron-willed Cissy isn’t about to let her social calendar be upset by minor inconveniences like arson and possibly murder, her sometime-sleuthing daughter’s got a more pressing engagement—namely, hunting down the culprit behind some very foul play. 
But there are more than a few nasty messes tucked away in the Mabry closet—and a craven assassin who has the Big D elite quaking in their cowboy boots may soon be burying Andy in hers!

    “Say what you will about serial killers, some of them can really write.”
    Some books have money written all over them. Not just books by authors like the Death Row inmate at the Arizona State prison complex, but books like Recreational Explosives and How to Build Them. Or Finding Your Patriot Ancestors Through DNA Testing. Or Losing America. Yes, Patriot’s Blood has gone racist, its list making money from books that play into the worst elements of society and its darkest behaviors.
    It’s no surprise there are plenty of suspects when Patriot’s Blood publisher Gloriana Alden-Taylor is poisoned at the annual Southwestern Book Publishers Expo (SOBOP). But the hammer falls on just one: Owen Sisiwan, a Pima Indian. Scottsdale PI Lena Jones enlists in Owen’s defense.
    To her horror, Lena finds herself rubbing elbows not just with greedy Gloriana’s family and employees, but with disgruntled authors and extremists of all sorts. Like that serial killer—he had been dying to get published by Patriot’s Blood. What changed his mind?
    While working the case, Lena, a survivor of a childhood spent in foster care, is further pained by her sessions with a therapist for anger management. Soon her flashbacks to the time just before her mother shot her four-year-old self accelerate and move her closer to the mystery of her own identity.

    Nowhere do startling intrigue and enthralling authenticity come together so powerfully as in the Kali O’Brien thrillers from former attorney Jonnie Jacobs. Now the San Francisco lawyer takes on a case that hits too close to home: the murder of her best friend by a serial killer who steps from the very pages of Kali’s own past . . . 
    When her friend Anne misses a dinner engagement, Kali knows that something must be wrong, but nothing could possibly prepare her for the news that Anne’s body as been found – strangled and provocatively posed next to a Dumpster. When a yellow rose and a poem are sent to Anne’s husband, Kali’s worst fears are realized. 
    Kali has seen that particular calling card before. Eight years ago, while working for the district attorney’s office, she helped to prosecute a serial killer known as the Bayside Strangler – a man recently executed for his crimes. When Anne’s death is followed by another similar one, it raises the possibility that either an innocent man was executed – or a dangerous copycat is on the loose. Either way spells doom for Owen Nelson, the ambitions DA who became famous for putting the Bayside Strangler behind bars – and who is now running for governor of California. 
    With his political career hanging in the balances, Owen persuades Kali to return to the DA’s office for one purpose only: to obtain an airtight conviction. Now, Kali must put aside her grief and delve deeply into the sealed secrets of a case long thought closed, searching for the clue that links the past to the present – and for the deadly mistake that let a killer walk free, waiting for the chance to strike again. When a third body is discovered, Kali realizes that the victims are anything but random. A chilling pattern is emerging, a pattern that points directly to the next target – Kali herself . . .

    As the new head of the Secret Intelligence Service, Davina Graham faces her most daunting challenge: solving a series of seemingly random political murders in international waters  The first female head of Britain’s Secret Intelligence Service, Davina Graham is taking a well-deserved holiday with her lover, advertising executive Tony Walden. But her Venetian idyll is short-lived. On the Grand Canal, widowed US Secretary of the Defense Henry Franklyn and his daughter are killed when a bomb blows their gondola to smithereens. The local police believe it was the work of the rabid Red Brigade or the Palestine Liberation Organization because Franklyn was a Jew. But Davina is certain that Igor Borisov, the power-hungry head of the KGB who ordered the assassination of Davina’s Russian defector husband, is behind it.  Another murder soon makes international headlines: the massacre of France’s minister of the interior and her family. Then the Soviet prime minister is killed in Poland, followed by the death of a pacifist British priest in London. The assassinations bring Davina’s ex-lover out of retirement. Forced to once again join forces with Intelligence agent Colin Lomax, while coping with a sudden death in her own family, Davina is determined to find evidence linking Borosov to the executions. The hunt leads to a shadowy organization called the Company of Saints, a private brigade of hired killers whose chilling end game is just beginning.  The Company of Saints is the 4th book in the Davina Graham Thrillers, but you may enjoy reading the series in any order.
