47 Rules of Highly Effective Bank Robbers:

What if your father raised you to be a bank robber? Instead of Barbie & Ken, you played with Smith & Wesson? And now you're twenty-two and ready to flee the nest, but your homicidal pop won't let you go?

That's the simple part of Tara's life. When she and her dad score their biggest heist ever, Tara's life of adventure takes a frightening turn. They're pursued by dangerous ex-partners and a special task force of federal agents. That's when Tara falls for the son of the local sheriff.

Like her daddy says, "It's always something."

The One Minute Assassin:

During the strangest and wildest election in California history, one candidate for governor tries to kill his way to the top, figuring if money, power, and snake-oil charm won’t get him elected, why not try murder? After all, being in charge of the eighth largest economy in the world is worth a little bloodshed, right?

Making matters worse, the culprit can hide among more than one hundred highly unusual candidates—all of whom are now suspects. Toss in amateur assassins, a spicy hot reporter, and the Russian Mafia—and that’s where ex-P.I. John Black comes in. John's politically active sister has a shot at being elected the first female governor of California. When she becomes a primary target, John charges into the world of crime and politics in an attempt to save her.
