    Along Comes a Wolfe

    When high school student Sheri Beckman has disappeared. When a massive search turns up nothing, her boyfriend, Tony Shepherd, joins forces with a wise-ass troublemaker named Charlie Wolfe to find out what happened.

    But Charlie’s investigations aren’t always legal, so when another missing girl is found dead, Tony must decide whether doing right might sometimes mean doing wrong. Together, Shepherd and Wolfe must find a ruthless killer and stop him before someone else dies.

    Shepherd's Watch

    After the unbelievable events of last fall, Tony could use a break. But his relaxing family summer at the lake crashes to a halt when Charlie arrives at the cabin after a local man goes missing.

    But nothing is ever simple when Charlie’s around, and soon the boys are again caught in a dark tangle of violence and danger. If they’re not careful, their search could bring harm to more than just themselves... Can Tony protect his family and keep Charlie out of trouble?
