One of WARREN ROBERTS’ SWAT cronies once told him a woman would run naked into the street to save her baby, but a man would stop to put on his pants first. It was an interesting thought, an enigma to ride the back of his mind and wait for a time of future analysis. But time plays tricks and sometimes there is no time for analysis, only for action.
Action soon takes on a whole new meaning as he embarks on the most embarrassing job he's ever attempted—working undercover as a movie extra. Just one day of bungling tells him he would weep for joy over some high-risk, tactical, search and rescue operation involving weapons of mass destruction, that is, provided it is anywhere but Hollywood.
For a man with his diverse skill sets, it takes only three days to locate background actress, RAINY WRAY. It takes him slightly longer to discover why he is really locating this blithe hippy. Only after he bungles them both into a quagmire of disaster does he take his acting seriously.
Reader's Favorite International GOLD MEDAL WINNER!
In the lush, primeval wilds along the Choctawhatchee River, even the stillness has depth. Those who venture in might believe they are unseen, but nature has many eyes and all trespassers invite risk
JANE PATE, raggle-taggle photographer, writer, and reptile collector, considers the remote areas of nature her personal stomping grounds. The risk fits her as comfortably as her garfish-and-guava-seeds existence. It is only after she meets REGINALD FAIRCLOTH, her inquisitive, interfering, English-gentleman publisher, that the word risk takes on new meaning.
When complications of lethal magnitude further invade her life, she bungles further and further into the depths of peril--deep into a creeping, slithering world where it is one strike and you are out.

(Jane Pate Series - Book 2) The follow-up to the award-winning mystery, Wherefore Art Thou, Jane?
Before Jane Pate and Reginald Faircloth can plan a more romantic future, they are besieged by guests from England. Reginald's father, Wilbur, and Reginald's old fiancée, Helen, at once take Reginald off Jane's hands and into Helen's arms.
Jane rides the back seat while these three moneyed individuals show her she must fight for her self-esteem. When she sets out to prove she can do more than catch snakes and writer critter books, she discovers a far more vital matter awaiting proof. The plight of one missing homeless man turns into a shocking revelation of nursing homes full of victims and a doctor who will have wealth at any cost.
Her pride and her great expose forgotten, Jane races to save the next victim. When Reginald finds Jane breaking into offices, cracking safes, and burying stolen money, he does the only thing one would expect from Reginald Faircloth. He plunges into the situation in his own reckless style and proves he has played this game before.
