Like fast-paced action and adventure with a little romance? Then you'll love Kate Jones! This exciting collection contains the first four novellas in the bestselling Kate Jones Thriller Series:
BAD SPIRITS: 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!"
About the Author
Raised in the Midwest, she earned a BA in political science from the University of Minnesota and promptly moved to Mexico to live on a sailboat. Several years and a multitude of adventures later, she wrote her first novel and was hooked. The Kate Jones adventure thriller, Bad Spirits, was first published in 2010 as an online serial, and was immediately popular with Kindle fans. Dead of Winter, Death Rites, and Touring for Death soon followed before she began the far grittier Leine Basso thriller series in 2012 with Serial Date. Now, she tries to give equal time to both Kate's and Leine's stories, a must for her (happily) impatient readers.
DV currently lives in the Pacific Northwest with the love of her life, Mark, a chef-turned-contractor, and several imaginary characters who love to tell her what to do. Her most recent books include A Killing Truth, Cargo, The Body Market, A One Way Ticket to Dead, and Yucatán Dead.
