by Enes Smith

LIGHTS OUT ACROSS THE U.S.! ELECTRONIC PEARL HARBOR!

Smith is a writer on his way straight up.â??Ann Rule, author of over thirty crime books, including The Stranger Beside Me and Small Sacrifices

Cold River Running is the action-packed third book of the suspenseful Cold River series that chronicles the Cold River Indian Reservation’s fight for survival after the nationwide failure of the electrical grid.

Å iyàpu (white man) Tribal Police Chief Martin Andrews is making a new life for himself with his wife, a tribal member and police officer expecting their first child, when the entire United States is plunged into darkness. Martin leads a tribal police force composed of fierce modern warriors dedicated to protecting their people and their land, with Lieutenant Smokey Kukup now head of security – in charge of weapons, munitions, and organization of a militia, including warring gang factions.

But when dark forces from beyond its borders threaten the sovereign nation of Cold River, its people unite and fight as a family. Every man, woman, and child will play a part in the fight for survival, as society collapses around them. Even seemingly-frail eighty-six-year-old Elder Martha Coeur d’Alenes surprises many of the tribe with her ability to handle her husband’s old 44-40 Colt revolver. But the heaviest responsibility falls to Tribal Council Chairman Bluefeathers who must guide the people to recognize that their united family actually includes many non-Indian friends, and they must work together with the Šiyàpu authorities.

ALEX GOES UNDERCOVER TO ROOT OUT THE TRAITOR INTENT OF KILLING HER FAMILY
Like a viper, she strikes when you least expect it. She’s the deadliest operative the CIA has ever known. Alexandria Kingston is The Griffin.
SHE’S BEAUTIFUL
After graduating from The Farm in Langley, Virginia, she’s banished from the only family she’d ever known.

In doing so she’s made herself the most valuable female spy at The Company.

Through the years, she’s built quite the reputation. The chatter throughout the underworld is â??Kill the Griffin,’ but as a master of disguise, no one truly knows what she looks like. Not even her lovers.
UNBELIEVABLY SEXY
Out of nowhere she gets a call to return home. Alex jumps on the next flight to the States where she learns that her adoptive family is in trouble. The Murphy clan is involved in organized crime and Margaret Murphy is the head of Boston’s Irish Mob. When she is rushed to the hospital word spreads that her life is hanging in the balance. Someone has decided that he will be the next to lead the crime family and is willing to murder every last Murphy to make that happen.
UNDENIABLY DANGEROUS
Deception has always been a major part of Alex’s life and returning home means facing the biggest deception of all, the one truth she’s hidden even from herself: her love for Shane Donovan – the only man oblivious to her existence.
SHE’S THE GRIFFIN
Now Alex has joined her family in taking down the enemy. The only question is, how many will die in the process?
