War hero, Matt McCormick has earned a respectable badass reputation in Afghanistan; but his enemy has moved west. Having special skills useful to the fight, he goes undercover; not for the military, but for the feds. The audacious, self-sacrificing hero escapes, and heads home to NEK Vermont, to his ill-fitting reputation for good looks and moral conduct; but his life has changed forever. Under capricious circumstances, he’s surprisingly catapulted into a new investigation, where his two diametrically-opposed worlds collide, and he finds himself, once again, in the presence of his enemy. Lives get shattered and lost as yesterday’s failures chafe the day. Surprises abound, and winning this battle will take, not only his badass training, but his blood, guts and grit.
Faint-hearted, but savvy journalist, Andrea Daye is any editor’s dream; but her personal life has gone sideways. Oblivious to her new husband’s past, she’s abhorred to find agents, lurking in shadows as evidence of his corruption rises to the surface. Trusting no one, her innocent, but sassy equivocations set her free-falling, not only into criminal charges, but into the arms of love. The Other Side of Fear is a story to savor.
