The Financial Strike Force is an international organization
that focuses on money laundering on a global scale. Grace
Flint, FSF Assistant Director is poised to bring down
German crime czar Karl Groeber but it turns sour when an
agent is killed. Grace takes this personally because she
personally recruited the operative.
After going over the failed investigation, it becomes
apparent that someone with insider knowledge sold them
out. That person is Grace's husband Ben. It turns out
that there is no record to prove that Grace's husband ever
existed, which means he was a spy designed to get close to
Flint. When Ben causes Grace's father grievous injuries
she vows to hunt him down and bring him to justice even if
it means going through Karl Groeber to do it.
Grace Flint is a flawed imperfect heroine who endears
herself to the audience because of her willingness to take
responsibility for her actions. Except for her, it's hard
to tell the heroes from the villains in FLINT'S LAW because
most of the players have their own agenda and alliances.
The story line compulsively compels readers to finish this
tale in one sitting. It will be very hard to wait for the
next installment in this dynamic new series.

Critics everywhere fell in love with undercover cop Grace
Flint. Said the Cleveland Plain Dealer, "She's brave beyond
words, troubled, stubborn-she's so real, and yet so larger-
than-life, that she captivates the reader and never lets
go. By the time you reach the scary, riveting, satisfying
end of Flint, you'll be wishing its sequel were already
And now it is. Recently married and living in the United
States, Flint watches in horror as the money-laundering
investigation she is directing explodes before her eyes: an
FBI agent dead, her targets flown, her own conduct under
question. But it's nothing compared to the chill she feels
when she realizes who the leak must have been. As it
quickly becomes evident that none of the things she'd
believed about the sweet, unworldly man she'd married are
true, it also becomes clear that, with the man now
vanished, her only chance to save her career and self-
respect is to track him down herself. But that is the last
thing that will be clear. For her voyage of discovery is
just beginning . . . and it will take her to places far
darker and more surprising than any she has ever known.
Written with stunning originality, this is in every way a
superior thriller, signaling a heroine and an author who
will be around for a long time to come.
