COMING IN APRIL: TRACES
Alan Lockem is a former Army Intelligence Officer. Now retired, he looks for ways to informally help military and civilian people who are in some kind of difficulty.
Marjorie Kane is a retired exotic dancer, once a headliner who toured worldwide as Kandy Kane. She is an experienced, self-trained psychologist with high-level computer skills, and she's attracted to the sharp, tall Lockem during an encounter at a golf club.
Now Kane and Lockem have joined forces as unlicensed detectives dedicated to helping ordinary folks in fraught circumstances.
A UK colleague requests Lockem acquire a flash drive from an agent in Minneapolis. After two aborted tries, the agent is murdered in front of Lockem and Lockem’s house is burgled.
Events entangle the couple with the discovery of a supposedly dead terrorist who's still very much alive. Remnants of past events collide with current espionage and danger for Marjorie and Alan. The couple is forced to engage local criminals and international forces before extracting themselves from danger and erasing the traces of another evil force from the world.
