Read full description of the books:
Thea Kozak is a woman who has prided herself on always being the strong one in a crisis. While she's usually not the one that starts the process, she seems to always be the one to clean up the messes--and she's had practice at it. She survived her husband's death and her sister's brutal murder and not only came through with her mind and heart intact, but has used that pain to help others. Thea is a tough yet tender-minded woman who--through twists of fate, some spectacular bits of bad timing, and her refusal to walk away from someone in trouble--has had her share of dead bodies and heartache cross her path.
Liberty or Death is the sixth Thea Kozak mystery. Thea is as strong as ever, and she will need every bit of that strength. This trouble is not of Thea's own choosing... and it threatens everything she values.
Thea is minutes away from finally marrying her long-time love Andre Lemieux--the state trooper who helped her discover the truth about her sister's death, and the one person Thea can rely on to be strong for her. But Thea is left standing at the altar, and brought horrible news of Andre's capture by forces unknown. The last place he was seen was near a small town in Maine that is a hotbed of right-wing conspiracy theorists... and lots of people with twitchy trigger fingers.
Thea knows she shouldn't get involved. Let the professionals do their job. Her job, for once, is to wait... and to pray. But that doesn't sit too well with a woman who has taken pride in being in control of much of her life and who has triumphed over adversities that would make a battle-weary veteran sag.
And when the other half of your heart is threatened, safety and self-preservation--and maybe even sanity--take a backseat.

Read information about the authorKate Flora grew up on a chicken farm in Maine where the Friday afternoon trip to the library was the high point of her week. She dreamed of being able to create the kind of compelling, enchanting worlds of the books she disappeared into every week, but growing up in the era when “help wanted” ads were still sex-segregated, she felt her calling was to go to law school and get the job they told her she couldn’t have.
After law school, Kate worked in the Maine attorney general’s office, protecting battered kids, chasing deadbeat dads, and representing the Human Rights Commission. Those years taught her all a crime writer needs to know about the human propensity to commit horrible acts. After some years in private practice, she decided to give writing a serious try when she quit the law to stay at home for a few years with her young sons. That ‘serious try’ led to ten tenacious and hellacious years in the unpublished writer’s corner, followed, finally, by the sale of her Thea Kozak series.
Kate’s eighteen books will include eight Thea Kozak mysteries, five gritty Joe Burgess police procedurals, a suspense thriller (written under the name Katharine Clark), two true crime books, Death Dealer and Finding Amy (co-written with Joseph Loughlin, a Portland, Maine Deputy Police Chief), a Maine game warden's memoir, A Good Man with a Dog, co-written with Roger Guay, and a book about police shootings from the police point of view, Shots Fired: The misunderstandings, misconceptions, and myths about police shootings, co-written with Joseph K. Loughlin. Finding Amy was a 2007 Edgar nominee as well as a Maine Literary Award finalist, and has been optioned for a movie. Kate’s award-winning short stories have been widely anthologized and Redemption and And Grant You Peace, her third and fourth Joe Burgess mysteries, won the Maine Literary Award for Crime Fiction.
Flora's fiction, nonfiction, and short fiction have been finalists for the Edgar, Agatha, Anthony, and Derringer Awards.
She is a founding member of the New England Crime Bake, the region's annual mystery conference, and the Maine Crime Wave. With two other crime writers, she started founded Level Best Books, where she worked as an editor and publisher for seven years. She served a term as international president of Sisters in Crime, an organization founded to promote awareness of women writers’ contributions to the mystery field. Currently, she teaches writing and does manuscript critiques for Grub Street in Boston.
She has two sons (one into film and the other into photovoltaics) two lovely daughters-in-law, an adorable eight-year-old grandson and five granddogs, Frances, Otis, Harvey, Oscar, and Daisy. When not conducting research for her novels and nonfiction—research that includes riding an ATV through the Canadian woods or hiding in a tick-infested field waiting to be found by search and rescue dogs—Kate can often be found in her garden, waging war against the woodchucks and her husband’s lawnmower, or in the kitchen, devising clever and devious ways to get the men in her life to eat their vegetables.
