The complete Series Box Set (Value Pack)
The
Sydney Rye series of mysteries features a strong female protagonist and her
rescue dog, Blue. This series is recommended for the 18+ who enjoy some
violence, don’t mind dirty language, and are up for a dash of sex. Not to
mention an awesome, rollicking good mystery!

This
box set includes all three of the Sydney Rye Books.

Unleashed (A Sydney Rye Novel, #1)
When
the series begins Sydney Rye is named Joy Humbolt. She does not like people
telling her what to do, so it comes as no surprise that she was just fired from
her last job. When she buys Charlene Miller’s dog-walking business on
Manhattan’s exclusive upper east side, it seems like the perfect fit: Quiet
environment, minimal contact with people.

But
then one of her clients turns up dead, and Charlene disappears. Rumors say
Charlene was having an affair with the victim–and of course, everyone assumes
Joy must know where she is. Joy begins to look into the crime, first out of
curiosity then out of anger when there is another murder and threats start to
come her way.

When
police detective Mulberry is assigned to the case, Joy finds a kindred
spirit–cynical and none-too-fond of the human race. As they dig deep into the
secrets of Manhattan’s elite, they not only get closer to the killer but also
to a point of no return. One last murder sends Joy Humbolt hurtling over the
edge. Her only chance of survival is to become Sydney Rye.


Death
in the Dark
(A Sydney
Rye Novella, #2)
At
the beginning of Death in the Dark we find Joy Humbolt hiding, not only from
the law, but also from her past and the mistakes she’s made. Living this
isolated life doesn’t last long though when a visit from Mulberry brings Joy to
accept her new identity as the Private Detective, Sydney Rye. To complete the
transformation, Joy must learn to control her emotions as well as her giant
aggressive dog, Blue. With the help of an expert trainer, Joy learns to fight
with her mind as well as her body. However, when the daughter of a close friend
is brutally murdered in the desert, Rye turns away from her mentor to seek
revenge. Sydney’s quick temper and deadly intentions lead her into a trap that
she will need all of her new skills to survive.


Insatiable (A Sydney Rye Novel, #3)
The
third book in the series begins with private detective Sydney Rye living a
simple, disciplined life in London, but when a dangerous man from her past
calls, Rye finds she cannot turn him away. Robert Maxim explains that the
daughter of a powerful friend has gone missing and he wants Rye to find her. In
exchange he offers her something she had given up hope of ever having; freedom
from her past.

With
her dog, Blue, at her side, Rye meets up with her new partner, a handsome man
she’s not sure she can trust. Heading for Mexico City, they go undercover,
posing as husband and wife. After meeting with the bereaved parents, Rye starts
to sense that there is more going on than just a missing girl. But it isn’t
until they arrive in the Yucatan Peninsula, hot on the girl’s trail in
Paradise, that all hell breaks loose. Sydney has to reach out for help from old
friends and deal with the consequences of her past, if she’s going to find the
girl and keep them all alive.
Excerpt from Death in the Dark:
It
was pouring rain, and my headlights barely cut the darkness when I rolled
across the border between Arizona and Mexico. No one ventured out of the warmly
lit hut serving as border control to check my I.D. They waved from the window
at my RV to just keep driving. So I did. My relief was so intense that once the
lights were no longer visible in my rearview mirror, I had to pull over. I
climbed out into the storm, held my arms out to the side, and cried out into
the void, “I made it!”
“What
the fuck are you doing?” Mulberry pulled alongside me, leaning out of his open
window, scowling. “Get back in the fucking RV. We’re not there, yet.” He rolled
up his window and waited, looking straight ahead into the darkness. I climbed
back into the sturdy old RV, and, soaked to the bone, started to drive again.
For
three hours, we continued on the same road. Florescent-lit low buildings slid
by in the darkness, advertising gas and tacos. My night vision made shadows
into monsters, and the empty desert filled with motion. Part of it was the
rain, so rare to that region that it seemed to delight in all the open space.
Drops fell thick and straight, and then they came from the left, and suddenly
from the right. My headlights, like a stagnant spotlight on a troupe of
dancers, caught the movements in brief glimpses.
