"...political suspense of the best kind.""...makes you want to stop and read it all over again."Start reading today!A Word from the AuthorFirst of all, thank you for your interest in my books. You’ll find in many of my books, I include characters with intellectual or physical challenges. Added to this, I wanted to write twisty crime thrillers with complex characters and surprise endings, so I created the Elizabeth McClaine thriller series. So, who is Elizabeth McClaine?Strong-minded Elizabeth uses her connections to the local government in her home town of Cleveland, Ohio to find justice for those who need it. The stories involve kidnappings and heists, corporate greed and murders and storylines that will keep the pages turning onto the wee hours.What gives these stories heart?Real, believable characters from Elizabeth herself to Holly, the cherished only daughter born with Down syndrome. Having loved and cared for a disabled daughter myself, I know the joy and the challenges caring for and loving a disabled child can bring. Therefore, from book #1, Holly brings Elizabeth a real sense of purpose and a desire to help those in need. The books in the series are sequential, but each is a standalone, so you can read them out of order.The Elizabeth McClaine Series so far Includes:BOOK #1: THE CANDIDATE’S DAUGHTERBOOK #2: CHILD OF THE STATEBOOK #3 A STOLEN WOMANTHE ELIZABETH MCCLAINE BOX SET OF THRILLERSStandalone Titles by Catherine LeaLAST SEEN LEAVING – A THRILLERDROPPING DEAD IN DELBY RISH – A VERY BRITISH MURDER MYSTERY (Satire)THE CONTESTANT – A SERIAL KILLER THRILLERIf you have any questions, you’ll find my page on Goodreads.Again, my most heartfelt thanks for your interest,Catherine
