​Betrayal by Gary E Smith

In this latest novel by author Gary Smith, Warren Steelgrave has been pulled away from the quiet, contemplative evenings on the veranda and writing to honor the request of a friend. Brigadier Mattia’s son Carlo has gone missing. Carlo was a member of an international task force investigating drug and human trafficking in the United States.

Follow Steelgrave carefully as he uses courage and skill to uncover a murderous scheme of international proportion. Travel down the dark alleyways of intrigue through Italy and the United States. Will there be justice and light at the end of this literary journey, or will the last chapter be Warren’s obituary?”

To Hunt Men by Gary E Smith

With another accolade presented by the Independent Press Award, www.IndependentPressAward.com, earlier this year, To Hunt Men by Gary Smith is the sixth installment of the engaging Warren Steelgrave Series. Warren and Cindy are enjoying a martini in the late afternoon on their terrace when a car pulls over and parks opposite their house in Italy. Their unexpected visitor is Jack, a retired police detective who is now a nonfiction writer. Two years ago, Warren was investigating the murder of a close friend and he partnered with Jack who was researching the murder of an artist because the victims had common friends and acquaintances. Putting their lives in danger, they solved the murders, had brushes with the Mafia, and busted a Chinese espionage ring. Jack is writing a book about the experience which will be published soon. Someone attempted to abduct him so he came to Warren for advice. Who is behind the attempted abduction and why?
