Retired OSI special agent Maxine Decker returns in THE TOMB, her most dangerous mission to date: prevent the assassination of a Supreme Court justice.

After capturing the world’s most wanted drug lord, Maxine comes across a photo of an object recently found in the Colorado River, an object tied to a WWII plot to send a submarine up the Colorado and destroy the Hoover Dam. Identifying the object as an earthquake machine based on the turn-of-the-century design of Nikola Tesla, Max soon becomes the target of two groups: the designer of a modern version of the device and the Mexican cartel bent on revenge for the killing of their leader.

Her mission becomes critical when she discovers that the lives of all nine justices, and perhaps millions of others, are at risk.

"This story is fresh and new. The Tomb is a thriller, but what I really liked about this book was the way the villain was portrayed. I got to see the events that filled her with so much hate and vengeance. She has a heartbreaking story that makes me wonder just how far a person can be pushed before they are driven to revenge. You don’t get to see much of this in formula thrillers—it’s usually just a good guy against a bad guy and the good guy wins. THE END. But this story was unique. Max is up against someone whose life has been destroyed and has nothing to lose." ~ Amazon review

THE TOMB is available in print and e-book
