The Jacq of Spades: Part 1 of the Red Dog Conspiracy Patricia Loofbourrow

The domed neo-Victorian city of Bridges is split between four crime families in an uneasy cease-fire. Social disparity increasing and its steam-driven infrastructure failing, a new faction is on the rise: the Red Dogs. Jacqueline Spadros has a rich husband, a powerful family. But her life is not what it seems. Kidnapped from her mother's brothel and forced to marry, the murder of her best friend Air ten years before haunts her. She finds freedom in her private eye business, which she hides in fear of her sadistic father-in-law. Air's little brother disappears and the Red Dogs are framed for it. With the help of a gentleman investigator hired by the Red Dogs to learn the truth, Jacqui pushes her abilities to their limits in hope of rescuing the child before the kidnapper disposes of him.

The Alcatraz Coup Patricia Loofbourrow

How far would you go to save your city from a madman? Fifteen hundred years after the Catastrophe, Inventor Benjamin Kerr built the domed city-state of Bridges in the center of the former U.S. Three hundred years later, Bridges is in trouble. King Taylor Kerr is elderly, the economy is failing, and corruption is rampant. Forty years ago, a fence was built around the urban area to keep out the homeless. This number has increased to over 100,000, whole generations knowing only life in the tent camps. Acevedo Spadros is a Bridges history teacher. His former student Xavier Alcatraz is head of the Guard. When King Taylor is assassinated by his son Polansky Kerr, who then plans to slaughter everyone outside the fence, Acevedo and Xavier plan the unthinkable: to bring down the Mad King.
