With little in the form of entertainment in the farming community, she haunted the quiet corners of the local Carnegie library. A love of reading soon led her to writing short stories and novels.

Zeke is President of his bike club and a lead investigator married to Ginny. They have two sons and a son they took in to raise when he was young. Which happens to be someone they are not expecting him to be. It will be revealed later in the book.
Ginny is a tough and intelligent woman whose strength always shines through and she is Zeke's whole existence as is he to her. She holds the family together through the most difficult times they have ever seen until she was brutally raped and beaten within an inch of her life. Everything threatens to crumble when this happens. The rapist left no clues as to who they might have been so, Zeke (accustomed to taking matters into his own hands) has to try and stop this mad man before he strikes their family another blow.
The I.A (Internal Affairs Investigator) agent has it out for Zeke and his biker family. He wants to serve Zeke on a platter to the brass and Zeke serving prison time. He thinks that Zeke and his motorcycle club are into organized crime and will stop at nothing to destroy him. Will it happen or will the I.A. officer end up going down?
This book is definity for you if you love bikes, bikers, clubs, strong and courageous women, and strong family ties. Along with detective stories, mystery, crime, and violence. This book fits most genres. No if I were you, I'd buy book one and two because as soon as you have finished one you will want to go right into two. It is that good of a book.
Zeke and Ginny with their three children make a stable family. Zeke is a biker and a cop. When misfortune follows him and his wife, he can't figure out the mysterious source of their bad luck. Then, after several twists and turns, the plot unravels to a gratifying end. Plus, to the reader's satisfaction, the villain finds his comeuppance eventually, although who he is and his malevolence stay hidden in the beginning. The author comes up with so many red herrings that I could not safely predict who the true villain was until the last chapters.
The novel is written well, and it only took me a short while to wrap my understanding around the biker lingo and culture, but the author has done such a masterful job with it that the book became a delightful journey, a page turner, especially past the midway point when the action picked up. For a novel that can belong to a genre, the main characters are real, alive, and convincing as they are portrayed well beyond any genre requirements. What is more, these characters evoke reader empathy, which shows McBain's skill as a writer.
The second book, to be published at or toward the end of 2012, promises to feature one of Zeke and Ginny's children. I can hardly wait...
Zeke might rule the Lords but Ginny is the matriarch of the family and the club. She takes care of everybody. The club and her family come before all else. When a cop with an attitude defiles her, the club gathers like a pack of wolfs protecting their own. Societies laws don't bind this club. They have their own. They will do whatever it takes even if it means eliminating the guilty.
Mara has given us a story that will keep you turning the pages and feeling the pain and frustration as you follow Zeke, Ginny, and the Lords of Mayhem as they deal with murder, rape and infidelity. They trust nobody but their own.
We're thinking if this girl keeps writing, she could become the Nora Roberts of Motorcycle Fiction.
Look for her second book "Club Ties." You won't be disappointed
Zeke is a strong leader and Ginny fits him like a glove.....together they, along with their three boys, make a very loving and stable family. Their history makes them stronger together and helps them hold their motley crew together. I love the tension caused by Zeke being a police officer and an MC President and watching how he handles this dichotomy. I look forward to the next installment of this series.
