LIBERTY OR DEATH by KATE FLORA
Thea Kozak is a woman who has prided herself on always
being the strong one in a crisis. While she's usually not
the one that starts the process, she seems to always be the
one to clean up the messes--and she's had practice at it.
She survived her husband's death and her sister's brutal
murder and not only came through with her mind and heart
intact, but has used that pain to help others. Thea is a
tough yet tender-minded woman who--through twists of fate,
some spectacular bits of bad timing, and her refusal to
walk away from someone in trouble--has had her share of
dead bodies and heartache cross her path.
Liberty or Death is the sixth Thea Kozak mystery. Thea is
as strong as ever, and she will need every bit of that
strength. This trouble is not of Thea's own choosing... and
it threatens everything she values.
Thea is minutes away from finally marrying her long-time
love Andre Lemieux--the state trooper who helped her
discover the truth about her sister's death, and the one
person Thea can rely on to be strong for her. But Thea is
left standing at the altar, and brought horrible news of
Andre's capture by forces unknown. The last place he was
seen was near a small town in Maine that is a hotbed of
right-wing conspiracy theorists... and lots of people with
twitchy trigger fingers.
Thea knows she shouldn't get involved. Let the
professionals do their job. Her job, for once, is to
wait... and to pray. But that doesn't sit too well with a
woman who has taken pride in being in control of much of
her life and who has triumphed over adversities that would
make a battle-weary veteran sag.
And when the other half of your heart is threatened, safety
and self-preservation--and maybe even sanity--take a
