About the Author
Dorothy May Mercer lives in Michigan with her husband. After a long career in teaching, writing and performing music, she has entered a very active retirement career in publishing and writing books. Her lifelong interest in politics and news has inspired a series of action/adventure mystery novels with a bit of homespun romance thrown in. Her ninth and tenth novels feature a hot young Washington DC couple, Senator Mike McBride and his wife Juliette, reminiscent of the "Nick and Nora Charles" characters, created by Dashiell Hammett. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

This is a great thriller for so many reasons. It is believable, well researched, and informative into the shady world of organised crime. Julie and Mike, the husband and wife team work well together investigating these despicable criminals, and in keeping their marriage fresh.
The writing is engaging right from page one and continues in an easy flow right to the end. Again, Ms Mercer has come up with a wonderfully written story.
Dorothy Mercer must have carefully researched The Arlington Alias which is greatly appreciated as I read many mysteries that are set somewhere off in the writer's fantasy land. At the center of the novel is the crime of human trafficking. Having been raised on the Texas and Mexican border I have been aware of human trafficking before it was picked up by the main stream press. But sadly, the main source of crime is demand. But so it goes. What is nice about fiction is it can solve problems in a set number of pages and life goes on in a better way. I enjoyed the book. The dabs of humor. The interactioin of people in love. The look into organized crime which changes daily as technology changes. Dorothy spins a good story, keeping the reader turning the pages until the exciting end. If you like fact based mysteries, good plot, and down to earth characters you will enjoy this novel.
Lady dog again is a scene stealer at times.
I would certainly recommend this story as an excellent detective story that you will not want to put down.
Mike never let's me down, and Julie is so smart. And Lady Dog, wish I had one like her,
Great story line and a wonderful read.
Will there be more, I hope?
