Captain Lacey Regency Mysteries by Ashley Gardner, Amazon Kindle format

Meet Captain Gabriel Lacey, a half-pay cavalry officer who returns to Regency London with little money and no purpose, but with a sense of honor and fairness. He's pulled into a search for a missing young woman, and thus begins investigating crime, using his status as a gentleman but a poor one to cross the boundaries between the top of society and the working class of the back streets.

In The Hanover Square Affair, a missing girl and horrific corpse plunge Captain Lacey into the dark underworld of Regency London.

In A Regimental Murder Captain Lacey is on hand to save the life of a beautiful widow; he then investigates the death of her husband, a colonel who had been accused of murdering a cavalry officer during the Peninsular War.

In The Glass House, Lacey investigates the death of a barrister's young wife, and links her to a notorious brothel where the haut ton play.

Two short stories finish off the collection. In "The Disappearance of Miss Sarah Oswald," Lacey is asked to locate a man's missing daughter, though he senses that the family would be just as happy for her to remain missing. In "The Gentleman's Walking Stick," Lacey untangles a web of deceit involving a respectable society man, his only clue being a missing walking stick.

Join Captain Lacey and his friends as he investigates intrigue, murder, and villainy from the plush ballrooms of Mayfair to the darker streets of Regency London.

Growing up a homeless juvenile delinquent left its mark on Gabriel Logan. He lived a throwaway existence until a former FBI agent recruited him for a fringe organization for boys like him, ones who could operate outside the law for the sake of justice. As an adult, he sets an example for the others and is slated to take over their group, until his work results in the murder of his pregnant wife.

Going through the motions of everyday life, Logan does only what's required of him with one goal in mind: kill Hugh Langston, the man responsible for his wife's death. When he's handed the opportunity to bring Langston down, he jumps at the chance, but the job will challenge him more than anything in the past. Not only does he have to save Langston's daughter from her father's hit list, but the job seems to have come to them a little too easily. Logan must find a way to not only rescue the one woman who can take down his biggest enemy, but also look into the men he trusts most to discover which one of them is betraying The Boys Club.

Logan, a former Marine officer, is quickly contracted as a "consultant" to assist the FBI as part of a special task force bent on stopping the shadowy operatives, whatever the cost. The battles are nonstop, from the plains of the Midwest, to mansions in northern Mexico, to the war-torn Al-Anbar province, pitting an international team against trained mercenaries employed by the world's largest private security contractor … whose owner has a personal vendetta against the US government. Meanwhile, Logan is battling his own demons, especially the trauma of the ambush that his Force Recon unit suffered at an insurgent torture compound in Fallujah in 2004, which threatens to destroy everything he holds dear.

Carter Ash never thought he would walk in his father's footsteps and become a criminal. He was happy, a loving husband and doting father. It took tragedy to alter the course of his life and set him down a dangerous path.

Now a fixer and second in command of a growing criminal operation, he has settled back into something like normality. He does his job well, garnering a reputation for fairness and second chances … but never a third.

The new life he has built changes once again with a single phone call, leading to events that leave him outnumbered, outgunned, and on the run. Using every shred of cunning and skill he possesses to survive, he finds himself in a race against time and overwhelming odds.

All to save one innocent. Because for the man other criminals call The Saint, there are lines that can't be crossed.

Death by Pink Flamingo by Elisabeth Crabtree, Amazon Kindle format

Anna Hart, one of the new owners of the Pink Flamingo Hotel, is in trouble. Everyone in Hatter's Cove is talking about her. They're convinced she knocked off her sweet and kindly old uncle for her inheritance and if that weren't bad enough, one person seems determined to make her pay for her supposed crime.

Sylvia Sutton, her business partner and the other co-owner of the hotel, will stop at nothing to prove Anna's guilt. Despite Anna's love and affection for her Uncle Max, Sylvia's convinced that Anna is a cold blooded murderer and has made it quite clear to anyone that will listen that she will put Anna behind bars if it's the last thing she does.

So, when Anna stumbles upon Sylvia's dead body in the middle of the night and accidentally puts her fingerprints all over the murder weapon, there seems to be only one logical thing to do … bury the body and pretend she didn't see anything.

At least, that's what her ex-boyfriend thinks. The same ex she's loved since grade school. The same ex who left without saying good bye nine years ago. The same ex who suddenly reappeared that day. And the same ex who seems awfully anxious to get rid of the body.

Walt needs his assistance in evaluating security for Texas Governor Rob Lardner at a Halloween costume fundraiser thrown by one of the nation's richest Republican billionaires at his mansion in Fort Worth.

Miriam Van Zandt is the best marksman among The Alamo Defenders, an anti-government militia group in West Texas. She attends the fundraiser dressed as a cat burglar, wounds the governor, and murders the host's brother, another Republican billionaire. She is shot in the leg but manages to escape.

Jack is appointed special prosecutor and calls in the Texas DPS SWAT team to track Van Zandt and attack The Alamo Defenders' compound in a lonely part of West Texas. Van Zandt's father, founder of the Defenders, is killed in the attack and Miriam is left in a coma. The authorities declare victory and close the case — but Jack knows better.

The person behind the Halloween massacre has yet to be caught. When Walt and the protective detail are sued by the fundraiser host and the widow of the dead man, Jack follows the dark money of political contributions from the Cayman Islands to Washington to Eastern Europe, and New Orleans.

Harvey's training at The National Center for Missing & Exploited Children prepared him for the most important case of his career to date, the abduction of eight-year-old Gabriel Wheeler. Nothing, however, could prepare him for the boy's blame-shifting mother from hell who shoots up instead of alerting police when the boy goes missing. Nor is Harvey equipped to deal with the heartbreak when his girlfriend leaves him on the same night, taking Effie, the non-biological young daughter Harvey adores.

The case goes cold when Harvey fails to interview Effie's best friend, the only witness able to identify the perpetrator's car. As police resources are wasted on dead ends and wrong suspects, Gabriel receives unlikely help to escape from Willard Crawley, a simple-minded abductor seeking a replacement for the infant brother he accidentally suffocated years before.
