Publisher's Summary

Kate Jones Thriller Series Vol. 1 includes the complete text for the following four novellas in the bestselling Kate Jones Thriller series:
BAD SPIRITS (Books 1-5): Kate Jones is on the run with a backpack full of money, intent on finding her way back to the United States from Mexico. Unfortunately, a ruthless drug lord named Salazar is just as intent on finding her, retrieving his stolen money, and making her pay for ever having left him. Is there anyone she can trust?
DEAD OF WINTER: Kate Jones is hiding out in small town Alaska when she witnesses an execution-style murder. Convinced the killers are Salazar's men and desperate to stop them from finding her, she reports the crime to local law enforcement, hoping to put them off her trail so she can escape.
DEATH RITES: When Kate has to leave Alaska (and Sam) behind, she runs to the last place she remembers feeling safe: the North Shore of Oahu. Against her better judgment, she re-establishes old connections, and soon faces a new problem in Alek, a gifted carver and avid surfer.
Then a brutal murder and theft of a priceless artifact from a museum is discovered, and Kate's thrown into the middle of what appears to be a violent ancient sect come to life. Her only chance of survival is to rely on her wits...
...and the ancient gods of Hawaii.
TOURING FOR DEATH: Kate Jones is hiding out from her shady past driving jeep tours through the rugged high desert of northern Arizona, determined to stop looking over her shoulder and find peace from her mistake of a gun-toting, former life. Testifying against a Mexican drug lord and a dirty DEA agent didn't turn out to be a life enhancing choice and she's been on the move ever since.
Now, five years have passed with no sign of trouble and Kate's finally starting to believe she's safe. Her current goal is to make enough money so she can get lost in the tropics when the tourist trade dies off. Unfortunately, it's the tourists that are dying off and she may be next.

Laugh out loud funny with suspense!

Would you listen to Bad Spirits, Dead of Winter, Death Rites, Touring for Death again? Why?

Yes I would! I enjoyed reading the whole series twice and hearing it narrated just adds a different way to enjoy the books. Melissa Moran narrated the audio book beautifully and had me believing in each of the characters. I loved the way she portrayed Kate and her feelings, kept me laughing at all the right places.

Any additional comments?

Kate Jones is on the run for her life after leaving her ex boyfriend, Roberto Salazar, a drug lord in Mexico. She met him while on vacation in Mexico and fell in love after a wild courtship, thinking she knew what type of man he was. But after witnessing Salazar killing his best friend, Kate realized she had to find a way to leave and took a large amount of money stuffed in her backpack and ran off into the night. Now, Salazar wants the money and Kate back and will kill anyone standing in his way.
As Kate travels throughout Mexico, Alaska, Hawaii and Arizona trying to stay one step ahead of Salazar, she meets bad guys trying to kill her, good people trying to help, friends who turn out to be enemies and a few love interest along the way. You'll root for Kate, biting your nails wondering how will she get out of this jam, as houses explode around her and all the other numerous things that happen to her while continuing to try to live a normal life while staying under the radar of Salazar.
I love Kate! She's daring, loveable, compassionate, funny and strong, letting her weaknesses show only to those she loves, as she tries to survive.
This is a very fast paced and suspenseful book with a lot of humor on the side, which keeps it light and a fun audio to listen too. It's another great way to enjoy D. V. Berkom's books that brings her wonderful writing to life. I am looking forward to her next audio book. Highly recommend. JudyE

An amazing suspense story about Kate, who's trying to get back to the US with a back pack of money. Too bad a druglord is after her. Wonderful listening for a change instead of reading. Enjoyable for everyone that enjoys action and suspense

Consequences have repercussions

I loved the Leine Basso series by this author (DV Berkman) so thought I would give this series ago and even though I really enjoyed it, I preferred the Leine series but feel both are worth a listener too.

This is 4 mini stories that joined together make up one book explaining how Kate has to flee for her life and finds herself on the run from a vengeful boyfriend (who just happens to be a drug Lord). With no friends and family she can turn to for help without putting them in danger and the witnesses protection compromised she has to go it alone, moving from one place to the next in each book. Staying in one place leads to trouble and I love the way that she has to escape or use the environment round her to survive.

It's a roller coaster rider of a book.

With lots and lots of characters in this book the narrator did a good job of allowing you to tell who is who.
