About the author

Dear Reader,

After being published in fourteen historical western romances and one contemporary romantic suspense, I’m excited to take a much different turn in my career with my new historical romantic suspense series, the Secret Six. I’ve fallen in love with that delicious grittiness of the time period—Mafia, Prohibition, and of course, romance.

I'm a long-time member of Romance Writers of America and one of the founders of Petticoats and Pistols, a popular blogsite for western romance.  I'm married to my high school sweetheart, Doug, and we have four daughters.  I’m enjoying an early retirement where I can spend time with my children and grandchildren and do what I'm most passionate about: writing books.  

Last, but not least, if you enjoy cooking, hop over to my newest venture, my food blog, Swanky Kitchen, where I love ‘making the past taste good again’!

Pam

Introducing a remarkable new character from #1 New York Times bestselling writer David Baldacci: Atlee Pine, an FBI agent with special skills assigned to the remote wilds of the southwestern United States who must confront a new threat . . . and an old nightmare.

Eeny, meeny, miny, moe. Catch a tiger by its toe.

It's seared into Atlee Pine's memory: the kidnapper's chilling rhyme as he chose between six-year-old Atlee and her twin sister, Mercy. Mercy was taken. Atlee was spared.

She never saw Mercy again.

Three decades after that terrifying night, Atlee Pine works for the FBI. She's the lone agent assigned to the Shattered Rock, Arizona resident agency, which is responsible for protecting the Grand Canyon.

So when one of the Grand Canyon's mules is found stabbed to death at the bottom of the canyon-and its rider missing-Pine is called in to investigate. It soon seems clear the lost tourist had something more clandestine than sightseeing in mind. But just as Pine begins to put together clues pointing to a terrifying plot, she's abruptly called off the case.

If she disobeys direct orders by continuing to search for the missing man, it will mean the end of her career. But unless Pine keeps working the case and discovers the truth, it could spell the very end of democracy in America as we know it...
