The Erin Baker Thrillers
Out of Reach (Book One)
Nineteen years ago, Erin Baker’s sister, Claire, was kidnapped from a park in Miami. Although Claire was found four years later, the tragedy had long-lasting effects on both Claire and Erin, who stills blames herself. Now a CIA officer with three martial arts black belts, Erin has dedicated her life to defending those unable to protect themselves. Then a child disappears near her home, bringing up long buried memories, and Erin becomes convinced there’s a link to her sister’s kidnapping case.
When several children go missing near Washington D.C., FBI agent Alex Donovan, who specializes in locating missing children, is charged with heading the investigation. Then Erin Baker shows up, claiming to have seen a potential suspect that fits the description of The Magician, an alleged child abductor so elusive many believe he’s just a myth. Before long, Erin and Alex find themselves embroiled in a horrifying world where children are stolen and trafficked. Now it’s a race against time to find the missing children before it’s too late. But the closer they get to the truth, they and everyone they love become targets for a killer.
With deeply-drawn characters, a relentless pace, and a powerful plot that echoes the most shocking headlines, Out of Reach is a suspenseful thriller that will keep readers turning the pages right up to the suspenseful and nerve-wracking end.

Out of Time (Book Two)
In Patricia Lewin’s novel of breathless suspense, a shaken CIA officer returns to the field, drawn not by duties but by the chance to save a man’s life . . . and to meet the father she hasn’t seen in years.
Though Erin Baker has left the CIA, the people who once directed her career tap her to penetrate a medical aid group that may be hiding a sinister purpose. In Cuba, the organization’s head doctor is Emilio Diaz, Erin’s estranged father. Erin has the skills and a perfect cover to penetrate Castro’s shadow world. She also has another reason to take the assignment. An ex-mentor, previously on the case, has vanished somewhere in Cuba.
Full of emotional landmines, this mission comes at a time when Erin’s life is at a crossroads. Alec Donovan, a colleague at the FBI, is pushing for more than friendship, and he wants Erin out of the Agency’s clutches. But Erin is already in-and though wanting to trust her charismatic father, she suspects that a dark plot is unfolding. Not knowing whom to trust or whom to believe, Erin fights her way deeper undercover until she is ultimately forced to make life-and-death decisions that will affect nations around the world.
