The Aroostine Higgins Series
Governments, hospitals, and industry use computerized industrial control systems to remotely monitor and control elevators, electricity, alarms, surveillance systems, and more. It's convenient and efficient. And potentially deadly.
Assistant U.S. Attorney Aroostine Higgins put her personal life on hold to join the Department of Justice's elite Criminal Division. Now she’s prosecuting two men accused of attempting to bribe a foreign government official.
But everything's going wrong.
Her pretrial motion vanishes from the federal court's electronic docketing system. Her apartment catches fire. Routine dental surgery turns into a near-death experience.
When Aroostine's past comes crashing into her present, her most critical vulnerability is exploited and she finally admits she isn't simply suffering a string of bad luck.
An unseen enemy is determined to destroy her—and the only man she's ever loved—unless she finds him first.
Investigating an embezzlement scheme at a Native American casino tears federal prosecutor Aroostine Higgins away from a romantic getaway with her husband, Joe.
Dispatched by her superior in the hopes that her Native American roots will win trust in a community wary of outsiders, Aroostine goes on high alert when she finds her would-be informant executed in his home. Money skimming, murder, and rumors of stolen military weapons are linked to someone on the reservation, and Aroostine butts heads with tribal authorities bent on solving the crime and doling out punishment on their own terms.
After narrowly escaping a deadly ambush, she and Joe must somehow protect each other and another whistle-blower from a killer’s bullet. She’ll have to connect with the heritage she left behind in order to track down this ruthless killer.
