Kidnapper’s Moon by J.P. Hudson:
When Paul awakes, he finds his world reduced to a small circle defined by the sweep of a chain tethering him to an eyebolt. Boredom turns to horror when he learns that he will not be alive to celebrate his eleventh birthday party, whether or not the ransom is paid. People who love him are powerless to do anything but meet the kidnapper’s demands. Bill Hamilton and Freddie Herrera are the only ones who can possibly solve the riddle of a shadowy criminal network, rescue Paul and find those responsible.
Out of Balance by Michael Arkin:
Matt Lucas, a lawyer who has devoted his professional life to obtaining justice for women and children in a rural community, is in the process of retiring and relocating to Santa Fe, New Mexico, when he is called upon to assist Linda Lawson, an award-winning San Diego reporter, in a seemingly routine investigation of an incident of domestic violence. Their investigative assignment quickly transforms into a suspenseful mystery that plunges the reader into the worlds of domestic violence, child abuse, corruption, and judicial cover-up. Michael Arkin is a former attorney for the U.S. Department of Justice. He now lives in Corrales, New Mexico.
