Overview

Like fast-paced action and adventure with a little romance? Then you'll love Kate Jones! This exciting box set contains the first four novellas in the bestselling Kate Jones Thriller Series:

BAD SPIRITS (Books 1-5): Kate Jones is on the run with a backpack full of money, intent on finding her way back to the United States from Mexico. Unfortunately, a ruthless drug lord named Salazar is just as intent on finding her, retrieving his stolen money, and making her pay for ever having left him. Is there anyone she can trust?

DEAD OF WINTER: Kate is hiding out in small town Alaska when she witnesses an execution-style murder. Convinced the killers are Salazar's men and desperate to stop them from finding her, she reports the crime to local law enforcement, hoping to put them off her trail so she can escape.

What she gets is Sam, an enigmatic cop with a mysterious past who's been assigned to watch over her as the hunt for the killers deepens.

Sam and Kate's obvious attraction to each other becomes a dangerous complication as Kate realizes the only way she can stay alive is to keep one step ahead of Salazar.

DEATH RITES: When Kate has to leave Alaska (and Sam) behind, she runs to the last place she remembers feeling safe: the North Shore of Oahu. Against her better judgment, she re-establishes old connections and soon faces a new problem in Alek, a gifted carver and avid surfer.

When a brutal murder and theft of a priceless artifact from a museum is discovered, Kate's thrown into the middle of what appears to be a violent ancient sect come to life. Her only chance of survival is to rely on her wits...

...and the ancient gods of Hawaii.

TOURING FOR DEATH: Hiding out from her shady past driving jeep tours through the rugged high desert of northern Arizona, Kate Jones is determined to stop looking over her shoulder and find peace from her mistake of a gun-toting, former life. Testifying against a Mexican drug lord and a dirty DEA agent didn't turn out to be a life enhancing choice and she's been on the move ever since.

Now, five years have passed with no sign of trouble and Kate's finally starting to believe she's safe. Her current goal is to make enough money so she can get lost in the tropics when the tourist trade dies off. Unfortunately, it's the tourists that are dying off and she may be next.

"...Great story, fast-paced, quick read and all around fun!"

"...it's a non-stop thrill ride..."

"...It's fast-paced from the get-go and the action continues through to the end. This is how I like my books!"

I have been following the Kate Jones Thrillers and I am so excited that DV Berkom has decided to box the set as one. Ms. Berkom can hold her own against any of the top thriller writers in the genre and I will look forward to seeing more in the Kate Jones Series.

I loved these books!

At first I was surprised about how much action was in "Bad Spirits" til I realised they were novellas...

I love the main character, Kate, although I would've left the States let alone just moving around from place to place.

I was thoroughly enthralled and was sorely disappointed when I read the last book and that was it! no more (Til I jumped online to purchase book 5)

Well done! D.V Berkom did an excellent job!

The four novellas contained in this set will keep you reading from page one of the first to the last page of the fourth. Each story will keep you on the edge of your seat wondering how Kate will get out of her latest dilema. Hunted by the men of a crazy drug lord, she finds herself at death's door many times only to pull herself back with courage and a little help from some interesting friends and strangers, but can she continue to cheat death? You'll have to read and find out. There is never a

I enjoyed this series. The way it was packaged was very convenient as well.

I like the concept of having the lead character constantly on the lam. This keeps the action flowing at an almost relentless pace.

Berkom is skilled at drafting the characters. They pop off the page and very quickly become people the reader can relate to...
i-am Indeed.com - Gaele Reviewer
"...[DV Berkom] has created a main character that is easy to both understand and appreciate, with humor, grace and the ability to think on her feet, with a take no prisoners attitude that is very clearly based in her struggles for independence and survival. Each adventure is fast-paced and tightly written, the situations are entirely plausible and all too possible, crafted to create a tension in the reader that mirrors the pace of the action and the increased danger levels."
Amazon.com - Lawrence Reviewer
I've read all of DV Berkom's books and love them! I bought this boxed set to have all the novellas together in one book. Works great for lending to other Nook users :) It's also fun to re-read them one after the other, instead of bringing up each one on my reader.

Meet the Author

DV Berkom is a slave to the voices in her head. As the author of two bestselling thriller series (Leine Basso and Kate Jones), her love of creating resilient, kick-*ss female characters stems from a lifelong addiction to reading spy novels, mysteries, and thrillers, and longing to find the female equivalent within those pages.

Raised in the Midwest, she received her BA in political science from the University of Minnesota and promptly moved to Mexico to live on a sailboat. Many, many cross-country moves later, she now lives just outside of Seattle, Washington with the love of her life, Mark, a chef-turned-contractor, and several imaginary characters who love to tell her what to do.
