THREE SERGEANT FRANK HARDY BOOKS IN ONE, AND IN ORDER
In Not the Faintest Trace, two young men go missing and Sergeant Hardy is asked to find them. He is reluctant. He was looking for something more adventurous. But an attack by an axe-wielding warrior and a chance encounter with the cousin of one of the missing men draws him into the action.
The story continues in Recalled to Life, as Frank Hardy awakes in an underground cell with no idea how he got there and why he has been taken. While he attempts to escape, he searches his past to discover why anyone would want him hidden away.
In the third book, Dead Shot, Frank has settled on a horse farm and is offered a chance to take care of a well-known stud-horse named Dead Shot. But someone else wants the horse, and his life descends into a fresh hell as his new wife goes missing, possibly kidnapped.
The three books are the first in an ongoing saga of life in New Zealand, where a seemingly bucolic countryside is fraught with danger, from earthquakes, floods and fires, to the vestiges of war, and all the hardship that went with founding a new country thousands of miles from the homes of the new settlers from places as disparate as England, Ireland, Denmark, Germany, and China.
