One O'Clock Hustle (An Inspector Rebecca Mayfield Mystery)

On the run, accused of murder. One cop believes him. And it's her job to bring him in.

When San Francisco Homicide Inspector Rebecca Mayfield arrives at the scene of a deadly shooting, she's shocked to find that the witnesses have caught the killer, and that he's someone she knows. Rebecca's a by-the-book detective, and she's always done her job according to the rules, without hesitation ... until Richie Amalfi comes back into her life.

Richie knows his way around everything and everyone in his city. He can usually help people out of tight situations, but finds he can't get himself out of hot water when he's accused of murder. He runs to Rebecca to help him prove his innocence. As Rebecca discovers there's a lot more to Richie than she thought, and a lot more to like than she imagined, she soon fears not only for her life, but also her heart.

Two O'Clock Heist (An Inspector Rebecca Mayfield Mystery)

Out of her jurisdiction with no backup, except for the one man she doesn't want to trust ...

When San Francisco Homicide Inspector Rebecca Mayfield inquires about the murder of an old friend, a gang of Russian mobsters takes note, soon thrusting her into the most dangerous situation of her life.

Richie Amalfi, who Rebecca sees as a charmer with an indifference to the fine points of the law, knows way too much about the people trying to stop Rebecca's investigation. This makes her question exactly who Richie is, and how much she dares to believe him. But for now, he's the only one helping her in the face of threats to her life.

Through Richie, she looks beyond hard evidence to the secrets at the heart of the case, and in turn, to the secrets of her own heart. But through it all, Rebecca has to wonder if she'll end up as dead as a cold Russian winter.

Three O'Clock Séance (An Inspector Rebecca Mayfield Mystery)

San Francisco Homicide Inspector Rebecca Mayfield has vowed to have nothing more to do with mystery man Richie Amalfi, but when he tells her about the strange deaths of clients of a local psychic medium, her decision changes. Rebecca has always been intrigued by the paranormal and, despite her logical and practical nature, she can't resist looking into the deaths.

An attractive medium, a tormented ghost, and the FBI lurking around because of their interest in Richie and some stolen ancient artifacts, show Rebecca that the dead don't always stay dead and buried. And her emotions can't be buried, no matter how hard she might try. But following both just might lead Rebecca straight to the Great Beyond ... permanently.

Four O'Clock Sizzle (An Inspector Rebecca Mayfield Mystery)

When Homicide Inspector Rebecca Mayfield's would-be boyfriend, Richie Amalfi, is named as one of San Francisco's "most enticing bachelors," she's not amused, but she never expected it would lead to his life being threatened. As a restaurant owner, men's upscale clothing store owner, hotelier, and more--handsome bachelors all--are attacked, Rebecca realizes the danger is very real.

Who's killing the city's "enticing bachelors" and why? Rebecca must answer those questions as she grapples with her own questions and feelings about Richie. Rebecca soon discovers that where there's smoke there's fire. As she gets closer to the bachelors to learn why they're in danger, she finds their happy surface images hide troubling conflagrations below. When she's forced to dive below the steamy surfaces to learn what's really going on, only Richie has the insider knowledge she needs to do it. And while she might sizzle over Richie, the more she learns about both him and the case, the more she realizes that she may have just moved from the frying pan into the fire--with equally deadly results.

An eerie discovery brings danger and painful reminders of a tragic past ...

When some workmen dig up a skeleton, Homicide Inspector Rebecca Mayfield finds herself investigating a homicide that took place years earlier. She never imagines that it will have major repercussions on the lives of people she now cares deeply about, or that it will put each of them in danger.

Despite the bitter memories resurrected, as a cop, Rebecca has no choice but to pursue the inquiry wherever it might lead. But that doesn't make it easier, especially when it's clear that the special man in her life, Richie Amalfi, wants her to stop.

Dangers abound, moving quickly from warnings to out-and-out attacks. The past is shrouded in mystery, but as the truth begins to emerge, it becomes apparent that one or more people are willing to kill to keep it buried. Yet, Rebecca refuses to abandon the case because the dead, although silent, do speak. And it's her job to listen.

This is a mystery you won't want to miss.
