Fall of the Phoenix (The Raven Series Book 1)
Sweet Van Loan, author
There is no one who knows danger like Jo Hawke. The former CIA turned city detective has had her fair share of troubles. With a shattered life at her feet, she has finally found a way to piece together her small happiness. She has a reliable and loyal partner in the police force, an understanding and respectable Captain, a job she’s damn good at and a home in the city she loves. When she falls for the FBI Agent on her team, she thinks everything is falling into place. Nothing could be further from the truth. In the shadows, watchers are keeping an eye. The time is coming. The Phoenix has breathed his last and a secret Civil War is being waged in the underground of the Solomon City. Maja Hoval knows that there is a storm coming. What she could not understand is that this storm was not something she could weather alone. Now she must gather her spies to rally a team that will be holding the weight of the world on their shoulders. Maja and Jo cannot be more opposite, but they will have to find a balance in order to save the legacy of the Phoenix, and stop a madman from potentially raising an army against the powers that be.
