CHEATED BY DEATH
In this fourth book in the series, Jeff Resnick faces a new dilemma: someone is stalking his sister-in-law, Brenda, who fears that violence from pro-life supporters will escalate near the women’s clinic where she works. Or could the vandalism, threatening phone calls and letters against her have come from her abusive ex-husband? Meanwhile, Jeff grapples with meeting his estranged father and the sister he never new existed.

BOUND BY SUGGESTION
In exchange for helping her unlock the emotions of a disturbed young woman, psychiatrist Dr. Krista Marsh promises to cure Jeff Resnick's recurring headaches via hypnotism. Things start out rocky and quickly get worse when both the young girl and the Doctor begin to manipulate Jeff. Soon he's experiencing the young woman's emotions and can't tell where hers leave off and his begin, and Krista has other reasons for ingratiating herself into Jeff's life. Meanwhile, Jeff’s brother Richard is vying for a chairman seat on the hospital’s fundraising board. Two seemingly unrelated events that suddenly converge with deadly results.

Great series. I enjoyed Cheated by Death as much as I did the first two novels. I love the characters of Jeff and his family, Maggie, and Sophie, and the mystery is well written.

I got hooked from the very first book and can't wait for book 5. Very interesting concept.

I really enjoyed the whole series. Each book grabs you right from the start and keeps you to the end. Buy the sets and save money.

These two books are written and plotted as well as the first three in the series, but Book Five in the Nook version is marred by a great many typos and editing goofs. The relationship among Jeff, his brother Richard and Richard's wife Brenda progresses very slowly-- a little too slowly for me. I think I'm over this series.
