OBX (ISBN: 979-8-218-00862-8) is the first in a series of books featuring Michael Francis, an agent with the North Carolina State Bureau of Investigation. Agent Francis is sent from Raleigh to the vacation mecca of the Outer Banks to investigate the murder of an influential politician’s staffer. The struggling mother of three finds herself in a gathering storm of cover-ups, crooked cops, drug trafficking, and attempts on her life while she deals with a difficult separation from her police detective husband. In the midst of unexpected and confusing romantic overtures from a prime suspect, an approaching hurricane threatens to sabotage her investigation as Michael chases down a serial killer who's been operating in the shadows for years, facing human threats more dangerous than mother nature herself in a climactic ending with an unexpected twist.
