book one of the kirin lane series
Kirin Lane can handle anything from delivering breeched twins to retrieving a lodged Batman toy from the toilet. What she can’t quite manage is the lingering resentment toward her estranged father who abandoned her as a child shortly after her mother’s death.
When Kirin’s father dies, she considers tossing the one possession he left her—a tattered Marine Corps Field Manual. But when she’s chased through the airport by dark-suited men and finds her house ransacked, she can ignore the book no longer. The clues inside it pull her into her father’s life mission—finding the truth about her mother’s death and ending the organization responsible.
Following the clues means she’ll need to trust her handsome, flirtatious protector, Sam Neal–something she’s hesitant to do since he was hired by her late father. Her gut tells her he can’t be trusted, but Sam awakens feelings inside her she thought were in permanent hibernation.
When his connections to her father’s organized crime ring surface, Kirin must both question his loyalty and rely on his help. She races against the clock to unravel the clues and find her mother’s killer before the killer comes to find her.
