Here's the set-up:
Former Army helicopter pilot Raina Sanchez is plagued by nightmares. She can't erase the memories of being shot down in Afghanistan, of losing her foot in the crash, and the death of her commanding officer. When asked by an ex-military contact to participate in a secret drone operation with ties to the war, she jumps at the chance to exorcise some of her demons.

She joins Tye Palmer, the decorated ex-infantryman who rescued her from the flaming wreckage of her Kiowa chopper. As civilian private investigators, together they embark on a sensitive, risky effort: using cutting-edge, micro air vehicle drones in an attempt to expose the son of media mogul Nathan Kurn as a campus rapist.

But as Raina and Tye come closer to the truth about Kurn and his powerful allies, Raina's loyalties take a potential detour when she begins to understand a chilling reality. In a world where surveillance devices as small as tiny insects are being piloted into places most would never imagine, public and private forces both large and small are maneuvering to control them with inevitable consequences. For Raina and Tye the danger didn’t end when they finished their military careers—the threat has just begun.
One Reviewer Notes:
The engaging mix of genres (Sci-Fi, Mystery, Thriller), the protagonist (a confident and strong female).... allowed me to escape into a world that I have always been interested in, while mixing in mysterious government projects, crime, conspiracy, and perhaps a hint of a future romance….a skillfully crafted plotline, suspenseful build-up and a climatic cliffhanger.... you can guarantee I’ll be impatiently waiting to read the second in the series.

Here’s the set-up:
It should have been an easy job: follow cheating husband Larry Ivers and catch him with his mistress. But there’s never any such thing as an “easy job.” Homicide-detective-turned-private-eye Ken McGreevey takes the case anyway. After his medical discharge from the Pinal County Sheriff’s Department in Arizona, he’s got time on his hands. When Eastern European gangsters, led by the giant Croatian gangster who helped cripple him, attack Ivers’ would-be ex-wife, McGreevey and his team are plunged into the middle of a human trafficking scam Ivers is pulling for both the Russian and Mexican mobs.

It was a flash in the moonlight, a blur of motion like I’d never witnessed before. No human had the capacity to move like that. When I found myself face-to-face with him there in the meadow, I knew without a doubt that the journal was authentic. I knew that my grandfather hadn’t been crazy at all.  Because a foot away from me stood a vampire.
