Toronto Police Inspector John Sanders and architectural photographer Harriet Jeffries are an unlikely pair. Yet his no-nonsense investigative style pairs perfectly with her headstrong—and sometimes risky—approach to life.
Murder on the Run
As a dangerous killer stalks women on the streets of Toronto, a young schoolgirl is kidnapped in what appears to be an unrelated incident. But as Toronto Police Inspector John Sanders examines the evidence, he uncovers a disturbing web of false identities, drug trafficking, and worse, police corruption.
Murder in Focus
Sent to Ottawa to attend a seminar on antiterrorism in advance of a trade summit, Toronto Police Inspector John Sanders has nothing more on his mind than getting through the tiresome sessions. Intent on completing an important photo shoot, architectural photographer Harriet doesn’t notice until it’s too late that her work contains evidence of a meeting those in the photograph would do anything—including murder—to conceal. And when Sanders and Harriet’s investigation crosses paths with an active terrorism investigation at the very highest levels of law enforcement, the unlikely pair find they are the only ones that can stop an assassination.
Murder in a Good Cause
When the rich and glamorous Clara von Hohenkammer collapses dead at a dinner party, Toronto Police Inspector John Sanders is called in to lead the investigation. As the investigation turns towards those closest to the victim—her daughters and nephew—Sanders and Jeffries find themselves drawn into a world of radical politics and high-stakes theft. And with a killer still on the loose, the pair must solve Clara’s murder before becoming targets themselves.
Sleep of the Innocent
Fresh from a well-deserved vacation, Toronto Police Inspector John Sanders returns to find the homicide department deep into an investigation of the shooting death of a wealthy local businessman. But when a sergeant on the investigating team disappears with the investigation’s eyewitness, only Sanders’s fresh take on the evidence can unravel what really happened to Carl Neilson . . . and why.
Pursued by Shadows
When her former assistant—one who happened to run off with her then-boyfriend—contacts her out of the blue asking for help, architectural photographer Harriet Jeffries at first has no desire to become involved again with the people who broke her heart. But when her former boyfriend is found dead in her living room, Harriet and her current flame, Toronto Police Inspector John Sanders, have no choice but to get involved. Their search for Jane and a mysterious, deeply-coveted document, takes them from Toronto to small-town U.S.A., and reveals the depths to which desperate people will go to protect themselves.
Short Cut to Santa Fe
Toronto Police Inspector John Sanders and his girlfriend, architectural photographer Harriet Jeffries, are just starting a romantic vacation in New Mexico when they agree to help two children, Stuart and Caroline, who have been stranded at the airport. Following a local tour bus on what they believe to be a short cut out of the city, John and Harriet find themselves lost in the mountains and under attack. As the body-count rises, the pair must race to not only save Stuart and Caroline, but the remaining bus passengers as well, and they can only hope that local police authorities can piece together enough evidence to arrest the corrupt local businessman calling all of the shots.
