Maji Rios and Friends

Maji Rios is a just the woman you want on your team:

  • A street-smart New Yorker, daughter of refugees from violence in Iran and Chile.
  • A martial artist who kicks ass; but only when she has to, and with reasonable force.
  • A linguist with 8 languages and the ability to blend in across borders.

After 9/11, the Army asked her to join its covert ops counter-terrorism unit, one of the few women to work with the historically all-male teams of elite operators.

The Maji Rios novels begin when she comes home for the first time, transitioning from active duty to life in the Reserves.

In the first novel, Strictly Need to Know, Maji’s friend and ex-teammate Angelo Benedetti calls on her to help him to take down the organized crime rings funding international terrorism, from inside his own Family. Not the summer vacation she had in mind; but when Angelo calls in a favor, it’s an offer you can’t refuse.

In the second novel, Running Off Radar, Maji attempts to take a vacation in Sitka, Alaska. Available in July of 2018.

In the third novel, we’ll learn what Maji got up to between recovering from her mission in Fallujah and returning home to New York. Hints: it takes place on the island of Majorca, off the coast of Spain, and is referenced in Strictly Need to Know. A prequel of sorts.

In the fourth novel, we’ll get reacquainted with some of Maji’s friends and relations, see where life’s changes are taking them, and tangle with domestic terrorists in the hills of California’s central coast.
