Dead on Arrival

by Lori Avocato

Normally, insurance fraud investigator Pauline Sokol likes to keep her feet firmly on the ground. But her latest undercover assignment has the aero-phobic ex-nurse flying high-as she takes off to ground a land-and-air ambulance company that's been doing some rather flighty billing. Even having ER Dano, the company's best (and hottest!) paramedic, in the copter seat next to her isn't enough to soothe her queasy tummy. But her insides really start doing loop-de-loops when one of the company's owners is brutally murdered-and Pauline starts receiving creepy phone calls . . . from the killer! Suddenly the air looks a lot safer than the ground. And if Pauline doesn't crack this case soon, even mouth-to-mouth from her favorite paramedic won't be enough to revive her.

Deep Sea Dead

by Lori Avocato

Pauline Walks the Plank . . . A confirmed landlubber, insurance fraud p.i. Pauline Sokol's never heard the call of the sea - or if she has, she didn't pay attention. But now the former RN is donning her nurse's whites once more to go undercover as part of the medical team of the Golden Dolphin - a lavish luxury liner that's setting sail for Bermuda. There's something fishy going on aboard the super-deluxe dinghy, and it's Pauline's job to be the ship's designated secret snoop - if she doesn't get too distracted by the motley crew of friends and relatives who've decided to sail along with her . . . and by her sexy supervising fellow investigator, Jagger. But when a dead body turns up - in Pauline's cabin, no less! - and another nurse goes missing, Pauline realizes she may be over her head in shark-infested waters. And getting safely onto dry land may be a long swim back!

A Dose of Murder

by Lori Avocato

Open wide and say "ahhrrgggghhhhhhhhhhhhuuuhh." After years of chasing around sniffly muchkins with a tongue depressor, nurse Pauline Sokol has had it. She's sick of being an "angel of mercy"--she'd like to raise some hell for once! But finding a new career won't be easy for someone who's had no experience beyond thermometers and bedpans. Luckily, the smarmy head of an agency that investigates medical fraud thinks she'd be perfect for the job, since, for him, a potential employee's most important qualification is a killer pair of legs. So now Pauline's a p.i., but since she knows as much about detective work as a potted geranium might, the hunky and mysterious Jagger steps in to teach her the ropes. Her first assignment-going undercover at a local clinic to investigate fake insurance claims-promises to be a hoot...until the healers around her start inexplicably dropping dead. And before she can say, "streptococci," Pauline's stuck in a true health care crisis with her own continued wellness in very us jeopardy.

by Lori Avocato

Ex-nurse-turned-insurance fraud investigator Pauline Sokol's willing to risk anything to put a bad doc out of business-even her best friend Goldie's near-perfect proboscis! Her cross-dressing compadre has agreed to get his shnozz bobbed so Pauline can pose as his private nurse and gain entry into Highcliff Manor-a posh plastic surgery "spa" making an illegal killing with their repeat clientele. But when a super-rich "frequent flier" is unexpectedly widowed-and a receptionist who knows too much is given the boot . . . off a nearby cliff!-Pauline realizes she's stuck her own nose into something really nasty. Despite the pleasant distraction of the hunky Dr. Neal-and the unexpected appearance of her sexy cohort, Jagger-Pauline can't shake the feeling she's being closely watched. And if she's not careful, she'll be the next one who goes under the knife!

One Dead Under the Cuckoo's Nest

by Lori Avocato

When Pauline Sokol goes undercover to investigate brokers who match psychiatric patients with treatment facilities for high dollar bounties, she suddenly finds herself confined against her will in a mental hospital run by nuns! Of course, convincing the staff that she's not crazy is like convincing a jailer that she's innocent, so Pauline decides to use the time to her advantage and continues with her investigation. Just as she starts to immerse herself in this strange world and make some headway, her hunky cohort Jagger shows up. When Jagger won't help her escape, Pauline knows that she's in deeper than she ever imagined and her only hope is the help of her colorful and "off kilter" new friends - her fellow patients. But when a crooked cross dressing nun winds up dead, Pauline knows that only her wits can save her from a killer that's committed to silencing her...permanently.

The Stiff and The Dead: A Pauline Sokol Mystery

by Lori Avocato

Pauline has a drug problem ... Once a nurse, now a medical insurance fraud investigator, Pauline Sokol's going undercover in a local seniors' center, where prescriptions are still being filled for a patient who just happens to be dead. A little behind-the-scenes snooping reveals the hard facts: the recently deceased oldster was up to his jowls in an illegal Viagra ring. Not that Pauline begrudges these elderly gents their newfound virility, but it's unnerving to be in the middle of a group of sex-mad overaged lotharios who suddenly have the wherewithal to do something about it. It's bad enough that she keeps getting distracted by her own fantasies about her handsome co-worker Nick ... not to mention her dangerously sexy fellow investigator Jagger. However, there's nothing like a few more suspicious deaths to get a girl's mind back on her work -- especially if the next prescription for murder seems to have Pauline's name on it!
