“I was fortunate to read an advance copy and enjoyed every moment. It’s a ride, full of twists and turns, and such fun to read!”
His real identity is tied to a treacherous past associated with American intelligence operations closed down after the end of the Cold War, and his enemy is relentless. All he has to do is change his name. Right? Wrong. Very wrong. Felix has eyes and ears everywhere.
Finding Ruby Draker is a novel about accepting change, embracing danger, and taking risks. Ruby Draker learns that you never know what life is going to throw at you, and if you want to survive, you have to trust your instincts.
Ruby Draker has found new strength and is ready to move on after Felix Szabo invaded the Draker estate in Nice, France. Three Drakers are dead, leaving Ruby in grief and with thoughts of revenge. The Drakers are a family built of survivors, each rescued from Felix Szabo, a psychopath, who sought to murder his former agents at the CIA whom he believed betrayed him. The Drakers’ sole mission is to stop Szabo from adding more victims to his list, and although he also perished during the invasion, his legacy continues to haunt them. When the Drakers learn that Robert Draker, presumed dead since the shoot-out at Robert’s farmhouse, may be alive and at a rehab clinic in Portland, Maine, the Drakers know it could be a setup, but they have no choice but to try to find him and bring Robert home. It’s only when they arrive in the west that they realize finding Robert won’t be as easy as they thought.
Szabo has found a way to terrorize the Draker family, even after death. His outstanding debt with a Corsican crime family means the Drakers must now find and deliver a shipment of plutonium, which will likely be used by terrorists to create a nuclear bomb, to get Robert back. As Ruby struggles with the decision whether to save her brother or North America, she must also evade the CIA, who are trying to stop the Drakers from delivering the plutonium.
