The Sydney Rye series of vigilante mysteries feature a strong female lead and her rescue dog, Blue. It is recommended for the 18+ who enjoy some violence, don’t mind dirty language, and are up for a dash of sex. Not to mention an awesome, rollicking good mystery with tons of action that will keep you reading late into the night!
This BOX SET includes the first three Sydney Rye Books.
When the series begins Sydney Rye is named Joy Humbolt. She does not like people telling her what to do, so it comes as no surprise that she was just fired from her last job. When she buys Charlene Miller’s dog-walking business on Manhattan’s exclusive upper east side, it seems like the perfect fit: Quiet environment, minimal contact with people.
But then one of her clients turns up dead, and Charlene disappears. Rumors say Charlene was having an affair with the victim–and of course, everyone assumes Joy must know where she is. Joy begins to look into the crime, first out of curiosity then out of anger when there is another murder and threats start to come her way.
When police detective Mulberry is assigned to the case, Joy finds a kindred spirit–cynical and none-too-fond of the human race. As they dig deep into the secrets of Manhattan’s elite, they not only get closer to the killer but also to a point of no return. One last murder sends Joy Humbolt hurtling over the edge. Her only chance of survival is to become Sydney Rye.
DEATH IN THE DARK
Joy Humbolt is hiding not only from the law but also her own memories. This isolated life doesn’t last long when a visit from a dangerous man helps Joy to accept her new identity as the Private Detective, Sydney Rye.
To complete the transformation, Joy must learn to control her emotions as well as her giant aggressive dog, Blue. With the help of an expert trainer, Joy learns to fight with her mind as well as her body. However, when the daughter of a close friend is brutally murdered in the desert, Rye turns away from her mentor to seek revenge. Sydney’s quick temper and deadly intentions lead her into a trap that she will need all of her new skills to survive.
Private detective Sydney Rye is living a simple, disciplined life in London. But when a dangerous man from her past calls, Rye finds she cannot turn him away. Robert Maxim explains that the daughter of a powerful friend has gone missing and he wants Rye to find her. In exchange he offers her something she had given up hope of ever having; freedom from her past.
With her dog, Blue, at her side, Rye meets up with her new partner, a handsome man she’s not sure she can trust. Heading for Mexico City, they go undercover, posing as husband and wife. After meeting with the bereaved parents, Rye starts to sense that there is more going on than just a missing girl. But it isn’t until they arrive in the Yucatan Peninsula, hot on the girl’s trail in Paradise, that all hell breaks loose. Sydney has to reach out for help from old friends and deal with the consequences of her past, if she’s going to find the girl and keep them all alive.
Here’s what the reviewers have to say:
I really enjoyed this box set. I like her style of writing entertaining and clear. I’d recommend this author. I know I will read all her books and keep on track for new ones.
This series has everything…a strong female lead, adveture, relationships developments, a little sex, travel, and a dog (the best one imaginable).
Sydney Rye is a likeable and interesting character. The action is fast, the author’s style is easy and charming, and I like that she is economical in her use of words. These are good books to balance heavy professional and other intense readings.
Read the first book, then had to get the rest. Emily really keeps her characters, and her readers on edge. I have thoroughly enjoyed the style of writing. I hope there will be more books about Sidney Rye and Blue forthcoming.
I love it when I find a story that keeps me guessing until I finally give up on trying to second guess the author and just read as fast as I can — a race to the finish line. This boxed set kept me guessing and engaged to the last page. Often a good mystery loses its characters to the fast paced action. Not so here.
