The second in the series, The Turkish Connection, is set in Turkey, as you might have guessed, and introduces a new protagonist. The third, The Man in the Blue Fez, forms a united front for the heroes.
The latest series, A Destiny to Die For will introduce Angelita in book one. You can take a peek at a short scene by clicking the title. I think you’ll enjoy her life; she is one wicked lady.
