More About the Author

As an AF brat I lived in France and Newfoundland, both of which I loved, and at least half of the fifty states. As an AF officer, I served tours in Taiwan, Vietnam, the Pentagon, and the rest of the fifty states!

Now I'm having a blast putting all those adventures into my books.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
USAF Office of Special Investigations General Barnes hires former agent turned private security consultant Cleo North to accompany Major Jack Donovan on an investigation of the murder of an air force tanker pilot in England. As he briefs the two sleuths, Barnes warns North not to blow up anything as the brass is still reeling over the loss of millions of dollars worth of munitions when she blew up a cargo ship on her last mission.

Someone shot two bullets into the head of Captain Doug Caswell who had quite a dossier involving black marketeering, porn rings, and gambling though none stuck. The oddity of the homicide is the bullets come from a special stock made in 1939 and used by a Sergeant Gordon who along with his plane and a shipment of gold vanished in 1943. As the modern day case takes several out of control spins, the American detectives learn that the past offers something more sinister and deadly, a biological agent that strengthens with age.

The final tale in the exciting North trilogy (see THE FIRST MISTAKE and THE MIDDLE SIN) is a fast-paced action thriller that links a World War II unsolved event with a modern day mystery. The story line never slows down, but also furthers the relationship between the heroes who are in love but must concentrate on uncovering the culprit before a catastrophe occurs. Fans of military thrillers will appreciate Merline Lovelace's latest triumphant tale that once again proves why she is one of the sub-genre's ranking writers.

.

THE LAST BULLET concludes the Cleo North trilogy - and as it is with good friends, you hate to see them go. This is another excellent action thriller. In 1943 a U.S. Army Corps C-46 went down in the English Channel; Sergeant Gordon and millions of dollars worth of gold bricks were lost at sea.

Now someone has used two bullets from a special stock made in 1939 and shot them into the head of off-duty U.S. fighter pilot Captain Doug Caswell. Captain Caswell's profile includes suspicions of black marketeering, porn rings, and gambling. Any of these activities could bring about a vendetta, yet he was killed with bullets made 63 years before especially for the missing Sergeant Gordon. Those shells and his interest in finding that 1943 plane cause British Intelligence to request PI Cleo North and Major Jack Donovan to work the case with them; General Barnes is forced once more to hire PI Cleopatra Aphrodite North.

During their investigation they discover that the downed plane contained a canister of a biological agent that strengthens with age. This potential terrorist threat escalates and forces the detective team to dive and look for the plane. It also brings Captain Caswell's killer back to the scene where he plots their destruction.

THE FIRST MISTAKE, THE MIDDLE SIN, and THE LAST BULLET satisfy all the quests for stories filled with espionage, murder, romance, homicide, and passion.

Fun story- too bad it had to end. I love following a series and this one was quite enjoyable. I'd love to see a spin-off series!

A good solid ending for this, the third book in the trilogy. A pity this book was actually unable for purchase in Australia. I enjoyed all three in the series. All had good characters and a good storyline with both espionage and romance.
