The Lair by A.B. Michaels chosen as Medalist Winner in the Suspense / Thriller category of the 2015 New Apple Book Awards for Excellence in Independent Publishing.

Book Synopsis
After her playboy father dies in a racing boat mishap, innkeeper Daniela Dunn must travel from Northern California back to Verona, Italy and her childhood home, an estate called the Panther’s Lair. To say she’s reluctant to go is an understatement. In fact, she’s petrified.  The mansion she grew up in holds terrifying memories and deeply buried secrets. It’s a place where appearances are deceiving and the price of honesty could be death. Complicating matters is the fact that her friend, Detective Gabe de la Torre, is tagging along—without being asked.  “I don’t need a babysitter,” she complains, and is even more upset when she learns that Gabe has his own secret reason for following her to Italy. When a mystery woman reveals that Dani’s father may have been murdered, the stakes rise dramatically and Dani realizes that she and Gabe are now players in a treacherous game. Finding answers while staying alive becomes Dani’s top priority, even as she strives to figure out whom she can trust: her relatives, Gabe, or even herself.
