Pierre Belanger, calls on his old friend, George Hudson, to help him find Marie before it’s too late. Could this have something to do with Pierre’s classified operations in China? Even with the help of the FBI and the NCIS, Pierre and George always seem to be one step behind the killers, who are one short step behind Marie.

Sally Distefano says on

“As soon as I began reading, I knew I was in for a treat. This exciting suspense novel kept me turning pages long after my tired eyes screamed for me to stop. I completed the 400-page novel in two days! I resented the need for sleep! The dialogue is done so well. The French chef’s syntax is “spot on.”FindingMarie_Kindle

This is the second in the series. It can be read it without reading the first one, FrasierIsland and is a stand-alone novel. However, the beauty of reading a series in order is that the characters are already known. I loved Pierre before I opened the book, and I had heard about Marie, who is his perfect match. I can’t wait for the third Inside Story.”

This book was a selection in the Crossings Book Club.

Inside Story (book 3): Claudia Gillette is a prize-winning journalist at a high-profile magazine.

She prides herself in her cool independence—traveling the globe, beating the deadline. Landing the interview with Heidi Taber, the only female in an elite U.S. Navy special operations unit, is yet another rung on her ladder of career successes.

Lieutenant Bill White is not happy about the journalist standing in front of him in the midst of the Philippine jungle. He has no time for public relations campaigns—certainly not during a covert mission to rescue a well-known aerophysicist from terrorists.

As shells explode and tracer fire streaks the air, Claudia finds herself caught up in a danger she never expected…or wanted. With lives at stake, she fears her presence in the unit is their greatest detriment to survival. Will she find the strength to live through the nightmare…or has her ambition cost her her life?

InsideStory_lg2“Susan Page Davis is a master at creating several kinds of stories. I have particularly loved the stories in this series. Each one was better than the one before, and this is her crowning achievement. With characters who were bigger than life and that I really cared about, I experienced the setting, the tension—of various kinds—and rejoiced in the satisfying resolution. Kudos, Susan. Bring on another book. I highly recommend this wonderful read.” —Author/Reviewer Lena Nelson Dooley.

onkillerstrail_lgOn a Killer’s Trail:

A sweet, elderly lady is killed on Christmas Day, and nothing else—not a single wrapped gift under the tree—is disturbed. Detective Neil Alexander can’t figure out the motive. Rookie reporter Kate Richards wants the story, but Neil has little to share. Until there’s another murder. Same M.O. Same ballistics. There HAS to be a connection. And Kate is determined to find it. Neil is impressed with her dedication, but he worries where it will lead. They’re on a killer’s trail. And keeping Kate safe means keeping his heart off limits.


“ON A KILLER’S TRAIL is Ms. Davis’s most recent suspense, and it is a winner. I enjoyed getting to know Kate, and Neil. As usual, Ms. Davis’ characters are all very well developed and could be real. The faith message is excellently done as well. Set in Maine, readers will enjoy this snowy Christmas murder mystery. I had trouble figuring out who the killer was, and I usually figure these things out easily. I highly recommend reading ON A KILLER’S TRAIL.” —Laura Hilton,
