In her debut thriller, The Burning Man, author and practicing Orange County lawyer Solange Ritchie unravels a string of harrowing murders while drawing readers into the mind of a depraved genius. At its heart, the novel is the story of the killer’s adversary, Cat.In this flesh-and-blood character, Ritchie traces the painfully real struggles of a driven woman who is torn between her career demands and motherhood and a family saga involving Cat’s young son and his loss of innocence. As the murders mount, with escalating violence, the gifted FBI profiler gains insight into the monster’s demons, desires, and double life. What’s more, she can’t shake the sense that he’s hiding in plain sight, watching and taunting her. As the novel heads toward its gripping climax, Cat’s hunch is confirmed: the Burning Man knows her one vulnerability. Is Cat willing to risk making a deal with a devil to protect her six-year-old son?  

In his latest book, Nowhere on Earth, attorney Vincent Sachar brings back former U.S. Navy SEAL Kent Taylor in an action-packed thriller that has him battling against a rogue group intent on drawing the U.S. into a foreign war.   Driven by multi-layered characters and pulsing with action and suspense, this gripping novel follows the trail of corporate machinations, money laundering, high-stakes smuggling, and dead bodies from a manufacturing plant in upstate New York to the jungles of Africa.  At a time when real-life events around the globe prove that dark money flows freely into the coffers of nefarious political groups and that international borders provide no refuge from acts of terrorism, Sachar’s tale of international intrigue and terror strikes at the heart of the concerns many have in this day and age.
