Books 25 -30

Abby Kane FBI Thrillers by Ty Hutchinson

Book 1: Corktown

Book 1. The Doctor Is Back.
In the quiet Corktown neighborhood of Detroit, a mutilated body has the residents nervous and for good reason. Detroit Metro Police recognize the handiwork of the serial killer known as the Doctor. But there’s a problem with that. They locked him up seven years ago.
Because of her expertise with serial killers, former hotshot detective and now FBI agent, Abby Kane, is tasked with figuring out how this madman is able to kill again. When she visits The Doctor behind bars, he swears he’s innocent and not the psychopath everyone thinks he is. Oddly enough, Abby believes him.
Corktown dives headfirst into the grit of Detroit, exposing the government corruption and deadly violence that has haunted the city for decades.
I enjoyed this book and ended up reading all 6 of the books that were available for free in my ereader.  I can give a review of the first book but I won't review the others as they all interconnect. It was fast paced and revolves around a bad ass female FBI agent.  She is very experienced in what she does and does everything her own way and gets results. I think there are 12 books in the series and I would read the rest if they come up on the free list.

Book 2: Tenderloin

Life in San Francisco could not be better for FBI Agent Abby Kane and family. With white-collar crimes dominating her work schedule, chasing deranged killers is a thing of the past, until the body of a dead DEA agent pops up in Bogotá.
Ordered to Colombia for answers, Abby's investigation takes her deep into the Amazon jungle where she discovers evidence of strange experiments at a rundown lab. When she later crosses paths with one of the scientists involved, she learns that a new drug has been invented, and its danger isn't the addictive high but the terrifying side effects.
Abby believes the cartels are behind the drug, but the locals think it's one man. They call him the Monster.

Book 3: Russian Hill

In the first book of the Chasing Chinatown Trilogy, a killer is loose in San Francisco, collecting body parts. SFPD has no witnesses and no suspects, but FBI Agent Abby Kane believes a dead hiker found ten miles north of the city is the key to solving those crimes. The detective involved with the case thinks Abby might be chasing a ghost down a rabbit hole, but the more she digs, the more she begins to think the killer is playing an elaborate game, and there’s an audience cheering him on.

Book 4: Lumpini Park

Winning means killing. Sickos around the world are playing a deadly game, and the body count is climbing.
In the second book of the Chasing Chinatown Trilogy, FBI agent Abby Kane hunts the man behind the sadistic challenges the only way she knows how: by playing the game and moving up the bloody leaderboard herself.

Abby arrives in Bangkok, Thailand, where she discovers a killer is already roaming the Big Mango looking for his next grand kill to win the game. As Abby is pulled further into the world of deadly play, the dynamics of the game suddenly change. Out of her jurisdiction and unsure of who she can trust, Abby is faced with two choices: walk away or die.

Book 5: Coit Tower

It’s payday in San Francisco, and death is the contract.
The hunt continues in the third installment of the Chasing Chinatown Trilogy. FBI Agent Abby Kane is the sole Attraction in a bloody game designed for one reason: to take lives. Deliver her head and collect the $10 million bounty.

Abby doesn’t know who her attackers are. She doesn’t know when they will strike. But she does know they will come.
In this deadly game of murder, nothing is off-limits—not even her family. There are no rules, no restrictions, and only one ending: Winner takes… a life.

Book 6: Kowloon Bay

Every family has a secret that’s best left alone.
After the murder of her husband in Hong Kong, FBI Agent Abby Kane moved her family to San Francisco as a way to start over. Nearly three years have passed, and now she’s returning to her homeland for a family holiday.
In an effort to help her children learn more about their Chinese heritage and remember their father, Abby discovers an unthinkable secret that has her questioning the entire family she married into.
Kowloon Bay explores the well-established practice associated with Asian culture: saving face. To what length is perpetuating a lie better than acknowledging the truth?

Another Year!!

 So this is what 72 looks like!!  It's been a rough year with this knee replacement.  I'm still waiting and hoping for a pain free day but that hasn't happened yet.  I'm told it takes a year so I've still got 41/2months to go!!  I did have a great birthday though.  DH took me out for a delicious supper.

Meanwhile, that morning poor Walker had to go through this.  He and mom and dad had gone to see the asthma specialist, after waiting many months for an appointment.  Of course, he didn't cough once while he was there but Kelsey had made a previous recording so the doctor would be able to see and hear him.  All she did was order a stronger puffer and send him for a chest xray.  This is him in the torture chamber xray contraption to have the xray taken.  He doesn't look very happy! Fortunately it didn't take very long and he got lots of cuddles after.
