Rainy Day is headed to greener pastures.
Divorced, and with kids out on their own, she uses a recent inheritance to make big changes to her life. She quits her job and, on a whim, buys a hobby farm in rural Virginia, a hundred miles from her long-time home near Washington, DC.

Until she finds a dead body in her bungalow.

Joe Tyler is close to finding his daughter.
After a narrow miss in Minnesota, Joe follows a money trail to Denver, hoping to finally find Elizabeth, the daughter who was stolen from him nearly a decade earlier. Accompanied by his ex-wife Lauren, he enlists the reluctant help of Elizabeth's friends, only to find that he's missed her. Again.
Armed with new information, Joe races to California, desperate to find his daughter. Stymied by roadblocks and dead-ends, Joe soldiers on with his search, realizing there is more than a reunion at stake. He just might be saving his daughter's life.
With time ticking and no clear answers in sight, Joe focuses on the one thing he's always held on to – the thread of hope that he'll finally reunite with his daughter and bring her back where she belongs.
After years of looking for his missing daughter, Elizabeth, and coming up empty, he finally has something. A picture of her shortly after her abduction, showing her with another girl in Minneapolis, far away from her home in San Diego. When Joe arrives in Minneapolis, armed with the picture and an address, he begins to follow a vague trail of clues into Elizabeth’s life in Minnesota. He enlists the aid of a local woman, who specializes in helping runaways. In exchange for her help, Joe attempts to help her locate a boy who works for her and has gone missing.
As Joe digs further into the dark underworld of runaways on the Minneapolis streets, he begins to close the gap between himself and his long missing daughter. A retired detective and a few others offer him more hope, but what Joe doesn’t realize is that the closer he gets to finding Elizabeth…the further away he actually is.
Picking up where the #1 bestseller THREAD OF HOPE left off, THREAD OF SUSPICION brings Joe Tyler closer to the elusive answers about his missing daughter while leaving him teetering on the razor sharp edge between hope and heartbreak.
When the star of the Moose River community theater’s production goes missing, Daisy is reluctantly drawn to the case – and not just because her two youngest daughters have been cast in the play. Nothing adds up about the girl’s disappearance, including the fact that the local police aren’t too interested in pursuing the case.
The more Daisy digs, the more suspects come to light. The director’s primadonna daughter, who was passed over for the lead. The director herself, who might have had a change of heart over her casting choice. And a local cheer coach, who has reasons of her own for wanting Snow White gone.
The stakes are raised when Daisy finds herself banned from the theater. Daisy is determined to discover where Snow White is, ready to take a bite of the poison apple or fight with the wicked witch if that's what it takes.
Because the show must go on.
Noah doesn’t know the first thing about immigration law. Anxious to ditch the door job, he takes the case and soon finds himself immersed in a complex world of immigration, politics, and crime. As he works to help Guzman’s clients unravel the maze they’ve unwittingly entered, he learns that not everyone is playing by the same rules. And some people aren’t playing by any rules at all.
As Noah unravels the truth about what is going on—and the powerful people involved—he knows he’s in a race against time before more people are hurt…or killed.
A young co-ed’s death has been ruled an accident, but the university fears a lawsuit from the girl's family and hires Noah to gather as much information as possible about the night she died.
Noah starts asking questions and soon suspects the young woman’s death might be more than a simple accident. When he learns of a small discrepancy in the medical examiner's findings, Noah believes the police may have been too quick to rule her death an accident, especially when he starts digging into the true nature of the relationships she had with others on campus.
But no one saw what happened the night she died. At least, that's what people are telling Noah.
Are they telling the truth? Or are they hiding a different truth?
An old friend comes calling, asking for help and willing to pay Noah a premium price.
But Darren Van Welker isn’t really an old friend – he’s more of an old enemy from high school. He needs his son found, and he wants Noah to do the job.
With some reluctance, Noah agrees, and he and Carter find themselves in Las Vegas with just 72 hours to make it happen. But as the clock ticks, Noah soon learns that he’s not the only one searching for Van Welker’s kid.
Others are looking for him, too…and they have no interest in letting him leave Sin City.
And a story that just doesn’t add up.
Joe Tyler knows all about finding missing kids, so when Desmond Locker’s parents ask for help locating their son, he agrees to take the case. Having quit his teaching job and returned to investigating, he’s not in a position to turn down a job.
But Joe quickly learns that the story behind Desmond’s disappearance is more complicated than it seems.
And far more sinister.
As secrets and lies rise to the surface, Joe realizes everyone involved in Desmond’s life—his parents, his friends, his pregnant girlfriend—has a different story to tell.
But only one of them knows the truth.
After years spent searching for her, Joe Tyler found his daughter and brought her home. But things aren't perfect and Joe is still looking.
Not for his daughter, but for the person responsible for her disappearance.
As Elizabeth tries to adjust to her new life, Joe continues his quest for answers. The more questions he asks, the closer he gets to discovering the ugly truth, a truth he's not prepared for.
The saga that began with the smash hit THREAD OF HOPE and unraveled in the bestsellers THREAD OF SUSPICION and THREAD OF BETRAYAL comes to a brutal close in THREAD OF INNOCENCE. Joe Tyler gets his answers.
But will what he discovers help with the healing process? Or will they just shatter his life once again?
After striking a deal with the district attorney, Noah is settling back in to life in San Diego. But work is hard to come by, so when he's offered a case involving a mysterious girl and some photographs, he accepts the job.
What is supposed to be an easy case quickly turns complicated when a man goes missing. Suddenly, Noah finds himself in the thick of something far more dire than just identifying a girl.
Instead, he finds himself fighting for someone's life.
And his just might be in danger, too.
Picking up where the critically acclaimed Liquid Smoke left off, Drift Away exposes a new Braddock – introspective, lost, confused…but not yet broken.
Praise for the Noah Braddock series:
“Fans of the Bolitar, Spenser, or Burke detective series should hang ten with Shelby’s Noah Braddock.” – The Washington Post
“Strong characterization and biting humor.” – Publishers Weekly
“Fast-paced, hard-boiled PI style and sarcastic banter in a manner reminiscent of early Robert B. Parker and Robert Crais.” – Library Journal
“Sharp dialogue and splashy local color.” – Kirkus Reviews
“Shelby writes like a pro.” – The Kansas City Star
“A heck of a detective whose surfer appearance belies a thoughtful, tough, hardworking guy who knows his way around an investigation.” - The Detroit Free Press
After a self-imposed exile in Florida, Noah is back in San Diego, ready to face the fallout from the crime he committed. He doesn’t want to go to jail, but he doesn’t want to live his life as a fugitive, either.
When the district attorney offers him the chance to walk free, Noah listens. Her request is simple: investigate an assault on a local college campus, provide her with what he finds, and she'll assure that charges won't be brought against him. Noah reluctantly agrees, suspicious of both the deal and what he might find.
His suspicion turns out to be correct, as he's dropped into a case where people can't remember and don't want to share what they know. The more he digs, the more confusing it becomes.
And as the district attorney demands answers in exchange for his freedom, Noah realizes that the deal he's struck might be more than he bargained for.
