For reporter Birdie Keane, someone else’s worst day can be her best. This time both days belong to her. When investigative journalist Birdie Keane last saw the love of her life—LAPD cop Matt Whelan—she was caught in his passionate embrace, looking forward to a future with him and free from her alcohol addiction. The next day, Matt is dead. Suspicious of Matt’s supposedly accidental drug over-dose, Birdie follows the twisting trail of clues he left behind. Each stunning revelation brings her closer to the dark past of the man she thought she knew. Was he a dirty cop? Did he know the truth about a cold case she’s currently researching? When Birdie uncovers what Matt was hiding, she must make an impossible choice. But the deeper the secret, the higher the price, and Birdie must face the ultimate betrayal she never saw coming.

With less than a year of experience and only one big case behind him, FBI Special Agent Angus Green has joined the rarefied group of agents who have been wounded in the line of duty. Assigned to a desk job while he recovers, Angus wonders if he’s chosen the right career. He’s been following his late father’s dream for a life of adventure and travel—and instead encountered danger, pain, and heartbreak. But when Angus discovers that gay teens are being sexually abused by a pornographer in the same neighborhood where he lives, he shoves aside his lingering doubts about his job and accepts his new assignment. The case takes him from Fort Lauderdale’s seamy underbelly to boisterous beachfront bars where big-fish Russian émigrés launder illegal cash. Angus is back in full effect, but with great power comes great responsibility, and he’ll soon find his stake in saving these trafficked teens is more personal than he could have anticipated. Every case leaves a lasting scar—some are just more difficult to see. In the end, Angus will learn the truth of a saying he learned as a boy—there is a price to pay for every decision we make.

Will her faraway thoughts lead her along a path of doom? It’s up to her long-suffering, heard-it-all-before pals Squirrel, Raccoon, and Rabbit to save their distracted friend. Author Tammi Sauer will have kids and their parents in stitches with this funny, fast-paced, lovable caper about the importance of paying attention—and the importance of standing by your friends through thick and thin. “laugh-out-loud funny . . . caregivers will certainly find this chuckleworthy.”—Kirkus Reviews
