DIAMONDS AND HYENAS
Long before his illustrious career as a police captain, Paul Blaisdell was a mercenary, fighting and, if necessary, killing for hire. Crossing his path was a fellow mercenary named Kermit Griffin, who struck Paul as having a personal code of honor as well as a wickedly keen mind. Convincing Kermit to come back to civilization and promising him a place beside him in the police department, Paul moved forward with his life. Years later, the two former mercenaries, now captain and detective in the 101st precinct, their past unknown by the other members of the police force, receive invitations to the mysterious Mercenaries Ball. What do diamonds, hyenas and the hellhole of Angola have to do with it -- and why is someone shooting at them? Don't miss this fantastic novel by L.C. Wells!

GRIEF'S MELANCHOLY SHADE
In a heartbreaking scene from the episode, "Storm Warning," Detective Kermit Griffin tells us of his younger brother and the young man's tragic addiction, recovery and death in the line of duty as a Florida police officer. These few moments touched authors Susan McNeill and Rhonda Hallstrom, bringing David Griffin, a character never seen on camera, to life in brilliant color. That brief glimpse of David was like a beautiful puzzle with important pieces missing, so they decided to write Kermit and David's story. It's a tale about stumbling, survival and redemption. But most of all, it's about family. Not the plastic, wallet-photo variety, but the kind that gets its hands dirty and shows its scars to save one of its own. A brilliant novel you'll want to read again and again!
