WHERE DANGER LIES
Book 3, the FBI romantic suspense series by award-winning author Donna Del Oro
Two vicious crimes against women prove to FBI Agent Jake Bernstein that even in beautiful San Diego, you never know WHERE DANGER LIES.
Based on actual events, two cases prove that truth is indeed stranger than fiction as FBI Special Agent Jake Bernstein is pulled into two apparently unrelated cases while he’s on medical leave in San Diego. A female officer assigned to Naval Base Coronado is killed and a Muslim mother is viciously beaten and left for dead. Jake suspects something else is at work, two evils overlapping as two different worlds violently collide.
Meg Larsen accepts that Jake has a dangerous job, and is proud of his role in thwarting terrorists. She’s willing to aid him in his investigations but is not so accepting of his refusal to commit to her and give her a reason to alter her own career plans.
Even as Jake arrives at a crossroads in his relationship with Meg, he must stay alert and keep both of them safe. Although San Diego is sunny and picture-perfect, you never know…
WHERE DANGER LIES.

A BODYGUARD OF LIES
Lady Justice has a long memory as FBI analyst Jake Bernstein investigates a suspected Nazi spy wanted for war crimes.
A BODYGUARD OF LIES is a riveting blend of romantic thriller, mystery and WWII espionage. A Jewish-American FBI analyst, Jake Bernstein, is recruited by MI-5 to go undercover and investigate a naturalized American grandmother. The elderly woman is suspected by MI-5 of being a notorious Nazi spy wanted for war crimes. Jake Bernstein runs into a series of complications: This spy knows a secret that could endanger the British royal family; his attraction to the old woman’s beautiful granddaughter; an Irish, neo-Nazi group tries to kill him; and all the while, a clever, cagey old woman stands in the way of justice.
