A respectable citizen trips on a store escalator. On cue, Cadillacs start disappearing from lots all over San Francisco, as a team of scam artists use pure criminal genius to do one California bank out of $1.3 million of Detroit's finest.The bank hires Daniel Kearny Associates to get the cars back, and soon Kearny's team discover what they're up against: Gypsies. Dangerous charmers, they are one nation united in street crime. The escalator fall has mortally wounded their beloved King, and they're planning to attend his funeral Cadillac-style. And the action won't let up until both repo-men and Gypsies reach the dying Gypsy King - and the biggest scam of all.

By the CWA Gold Dagger award-winning author of Other Paths to GloryA few weeks after D-day the German army in the West is retreating, with the British and the Americans in hot pursuit. But Major O'Conor, ex-liaison officer with the Yugoslav Partisans, is conducting his own private war. As he leads his hand-picked team of ruthless fighters deep behind the German lines, it becomes clear that he regards French Resistance units and British Intelligence agents as more dangerous to his mission than the Germans. So it is unfortunate for him that two interpreters attached to his task force happen to be Second-Lieutenant Audley and Corporal Butler, already revealing the cunning and resourcefulness that, in earlier novels, has taken them to the very top of their field. Major O'Conor's startling objective remains unknown to everyone except himself until the final pages - where a shattering surprise lies in store.
