The Beckett Cypher Series collection of novels begins with Book 1 – The Case, a contemporary criminal investigation, layered with suspense, intrigue, passionate romance, crime, corruption, conspiracy, drama and shadow government.
The Case begins when undercover operative Shane Beckett is contracted by the Carson City Sheriff to investigate a crime family syndicate, and the syndicate’s links to drug cartels and politicians. Shane goes into deep undercover…only the Sheriff knows his true identity. Shane is quickly swept up in two murders, as he falls deeply in love with the woman of his dreams, in the middle of the investigation.
But just as he comes to realize that The Case is far more complex than he could have ever imagined, and he himself becomes a target for assassination, he also learns his new love and her family are far more than they first appeared. And after he enters the depths of the underworld, Shane becomes entangled with people responsible for his parents’ murders, an unknown assassin, warring drug cartels, and a shadow government.
Shane must quickly make complex and difficult choices as The Case introduces additional people, escalating danger, building intrigue, and a passionate love he had never known possible.
Shane struggles to maintain control of The Case and his life, as he identifies a barrage of people and motives. He must decide to continue alone, abandon the assignment, or jeopardize his deep cover and depend on other people, as the lines between right and wrong, and good and evil, become blurred.
Shane finally discovers he can’t begin to unravel these mysteries and solve The Case, until he finds the key that will unlock the past – The Beckett Cypher.
