To Catch a Bad Guy

Book 1, Janet Maple Series - Book One of the Janet Maple Series

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


Janet Maple’s stellar career ended with a layoff and her boyfriend of five years told her that he wants to be just friends. When she lands a job at one of New York’s premier boutique investment firms, Janet begins to hope that her luck is finally turning for the better. Not only is she happy with her new paycheck, but things also seem to be looking up on the personal front, as the company’s handsome attorney expresses keen interest in Janet. However, her euphoria is short-lived, as Janet soon discovers alarming facts about her new employer’s business tactics. When her boss dismisses her suspicions as groundless, Janet finds herself confiding to a cute IT engineer, Dean Snider. The closer she gets to Dean, the more Janet is tempted to break her rule of not dating co-workers, but what she doesn’t realize is that everything she knows about Dean, including his occupation and even his name, is a lie.

Dennis Walker is a top-notch white collar crime investigator who will stop at nothing to put culprits away. When an opportunity for an undercover assignment at one of New York’s premier boutique investment firms comes up, Dennis jumps at the chance, adopting a persona of geeky IT engineer, Dean Snider. While he may be an ace at his job, years of experience fail him when Dennis meets Janet Maple and finds himself torn between his professional obligations and his personal desires. Will he have to choose between his feelings and duty, or will he find a way to satisfy both?

Customer Reviews

Not expected

This was definitely not a romance novel. The writing & story line were enjoyable but I could not find any sympathy for Janet.
1st she was still tolerating her supposed best friends treatment of putting her down, walking all over her & attempting to run her life at the age of 29. Even tho they hadn't really been close friends in several years.
2nd she was very self-righteous in her attitude towards 'Deans' undercover work when she herself had worked for the DA. As if the DA's office has never used any spies for prosecution!
Overall she was a poor to mediocre heroine. I'm more interested in finding out what happens to Dennis & the Bostoff family than anything else about Janet.

To Catch a Bad Guy

Refreshingly "G" rated with good characters and a kind ending.

To Catch a Bad Guy

This is one of the first books that I have read by this author. I liked the manner in which the characters interacted with each other as they were trying to uncover the bad guys. I would recommend this book to all age readers.
