Lies and misdirection rule Fiona's game.
Fiona O’Dell is a clever manipulator. But is she a dangerous sociopath? On the run, Fiona is last seen leaving a shady motel room where the police find one man murdered, another clinging to life. Is this grizzly crime scene a BDSM encounter gone wrong? Or does it relate to a company’s data breach where all three are employed?
In a race to find Fiona, Lee Stone, a private security expert, and Belle Hugh, an NYPD police detective, quickly trace her steps across four states. They are shocked to find a trail of men from Fiona’s past being murdered, leaving no clues why someone is on this killing spree.
Secrets are revealed, and there is only one conclusion: Fiona controls the game. Can they find her in time to prevent more murders?

Brogan McLane QC uncovers the despicable deeds of The Earl of Marchion who owes £7.8m in Death Duties and who thought he could kidnap an 11 year old African girl and use her to smuggle and cheat his way out of paying those taxes.

Through dark days of prostitution and slavery in Edinburgh one of those children comes under the protective wings of Mr and Mrs McLane.

The author's field work involved detective-guided tours through forensic analysis, to the front line of drug dealing, and into the private pain of victims of crime. Readers of the individual volumes have hailed the work as action-packed thrillers steeped in authenticity and plausibility, reflecting the real world of police encounters with the dark world of crime.
