Dr. Louise T. Baker was not only beautiful, but much admired in her field. Her reconstructive jaw models were the talk of the world of oral surgery and she was in constant, world-wide demand to lecture on her specialty. Life was good—then the lab technician who made the models for her was murdered, and Dr. Baker’s life suddenly became rather complicated….
Sitting on the couch beside her, he struck a match and, in between puffs, said, “Tell me what happened last night.” “Do you want a summary, Sgt. Quinn? Or a blow-by-blow?” “Which ever's more comfortable for you.

An encounter at the Million Man March sucks Gunner into an ice-cold missing persons case Elroy Covington should have run. He had traveled to the Million Man March in Washington, DC, looking forward to a new city and new faces. Then in a Dupont Circle restaurant, a twist of fate brought him face to face with a man from his long-forgotten past. Instead of running, Elroy said hello. He never made it home. Eight months later, Elroy’s sister shows up in the Los Angeles office of private detective Aaron Gunner, who traded business cards with Elroy at the march and promptly forgot they ever met. Elroy’s last known location was Los Angeles, and his sister thinks he was coming to see the detective. As he tries to warm up Elroy’s frigid trail, Gunner uncovers ties to a black militant group. The time for brotherhood is over, and finding the vanished marcher will mean getting tough.
And he wanted to see Yolanda McCreary again, in any case. ... even more alluring than when the investigator had last seen her, so the patience to put off the questions he had come here to ask was not particularly hard to find.

LAST SEEN ALIVE presents startling new evidence of Stalin-era war crimes that sealed the fate of thousands of men unaccounted for after the Korean War & more than 100 secret reconnaissance flights downed by the Soviets during the Cold War. Exclusive interviews with Russian veterans & newly declassified documents disclose the last live-sightings of Americans in the Gulag, China & North Korea. After Soviet search parties combed crash sites for survivors, Soviet intelligence officials were the last to see the American POWs they interrogated in Manchuria & the Soviet Union alive. Compelling evidence shows hundreds of American POWs, both officers & enlisted, were shipped to Manchuria & Siberia. The author's groundbreaking research spotlights decades of public & government apathy & inaction that prematurely declared thousands of POWs dead & failed to hold the Communists accountable. This is the first book to tell the full story of Korean War/Cold War MIAs & assess the work of the U.S.-Russia Joint Commission formed to investigate reports of Americans held in the USSR. This carefully researched work by an investigative journalist, war correspondent & Vietnam veteran is essential reading for veterans & their families, historians, students, government & military officials.

I can see her, laughing as she swings as high as she can, her beautiful blonde curls flying out behind her. My little girl. If only I’d listened to my gut. Then maybe she’d be safe here with me… When five-year-old Molly Reynolds is snatched from the park in the small village of Otterfield, Detective Bernadette ‘Bernie’ Noel throws herself into the search, sick with worry for the quiet, sensitive little girl and her distraught mother. Wasting no time, Bernie finds a small green cardigan under a bush in the park. It still has the smiley face sticker Molly won that week at school. It’s the first in a chain of clues – and Bernie can’t shake the feeling that it was left deliberately, as a message. But Bernie encounters a wall of silence. Otterfield is a close-knit community, yet no one in the village has anything to say about the missing child. And Bernie is sure there is something Molly’s mother isn’t telling her either. Why? And then she makes a chilling discovery: twenty-five years ago, another little girl went missing from the area. Her name was Sophie, and all they ever found of her was her teddy bear, hidden under a bush, just the same as Molly’s cardigan. Now Bernie knows she’s in a race against time to save Molly’s life. Bernie’s team work round the clock to find a connection between the two girls – but when they find their proof it comes at the price of a shocking tragedy that strikes right at the heart of the case. Molly’s family have been hiding a secret, and now their little girl is in greater danger than ever. Then Bernie makes one deadly mistake that places her right in the hands of the most dangerous criminal she’s ever faced. She was willing to go to any lengths to solve the case – but will she stay alive long enough to do it?
