THE COURAGE TO KILL by Ron Argo
When a woman’s recovered memories of childhood sexual abuse lead to her father’s death, she finds herself in jail on murder one charges. But Ray Myers, a crime reporter, is convinced she’s innocent and that a killer is on the loose, a psychopath who’s butchering people to quell the raging of a twisted mind. In Myers’ investigation, he soon finds himself entangled in a bizarre web of mystery and murder that threatens not only his life but the lives of his family and that of the young woman.
A psychological mystery, The Courage to Kill portrays the fallacies of the “pop psych” treatment for repressed memory, a method—both reviled and revered—that has had the greatest impact on the mental health profession since Freud.

Suddenly, Higgins is running for his life, framed for the murder of one of his contacts.
In the Yugoslav mountains, where Croatian terrorists, KGB spies, and NATO agents play a dangerous game to change the fate of Europe, the two spies must sift through layers of deceit and treachery to thwart an enemy whose tentacles stretch from the East to the West, from the past to the present.
