Read full description of the books:
The first book in the Dubai Desert series, Cold Desert is a fast-paced international thriller that exposes the depths of human motivations, admirable and otherwise, and the unintended consequences that follow.
No negotiation meeting; drop only. Mission will be assumed complete once drop is made and hotel is exited. Look like any other traveler. Come alone.
When Rebecca Hadley’s husband is kidnapped halfway around the world, barely more than a year after their wedding, she is forced to leave the comfort of her New England home for the ancient souks and modern excesses of Dubai in the United Arab Emirates.
Reeling from a three-million-dollar ransom demand straight from the Dubai underworld and the American government’s staunch refusal to help, Rebecca hires Jalil Assaf, a trusted private investigator from the Middle East with an unwavering passion for justice, to be by her side.
When the ransom drop goes awry, hopes of a quick resolution are dashed and Rebecca and Jalil are forced to embark on an investigation to unravel the true motive behind the kidnapping. The desperate pair face a daunting underworld full of questionable operatives, who unleash corruption, murder, and heart-stopping terror in their wake.
Risking her life and the lives of others she pulls into the fray, Rebecca gains Jalil’s trust and summons all her strength to shift from victim to capable ally. But will her drive and perseverance be enough to combat those, near and far, working against them?
As all involved hurl forward in search of the truth, battle lines begin to blur but motives remain steadfast. For the locals it is about honor and perpetuating business, but for Rebecca… it is deeply personal.
Interview with D.K. Scott
Q: What should readers expect from the international crime thriller Cold Desert?
A: The book is a crime thriller at its core, but it pulls from many other genres: action adventure, international mystery and crime, organized crime fiction, private investigator mystery, conspiracy thrillers, financial thrillers, and thriller romance. Corruption, espionage, kidnapping and ransom drama are also present.
Q: What is special about Cold Desert?
A: Cold Desert is a fast-paced international crime thriller that flips between Dubai, United Arab Emirates in the Middle East and my New England home of Boston, Massachusetts. There isn't much downtime in the book. My aim was to give readers a lot to think about while still hitting the mark as a highly entertaining international thriller. There is also a backdrop of romance that adds another layer of intrigue.
Q: Why should readers give Cold Desert a shot?
A: Cold Desert is an entertaining crime thriller that doesn’t stop. The backdrop set, it’s a frantic roll downhill. There are plenty of twists and turns to keep the action catapulting forward.
Q: Have you traveled to Dubai?
A: Yes, I was fortunate enough to spend two weeks in Dubai: one in historic Deira and Bur Dubai and another in the resort town of Jumeirah. I knew instantly that Dubai would be one of the key settings for my international crime thriller Cold Desert.
Q: How is the next book in the series coming along?
A: It's in full swing. I'm writing fast and furiously to get the second installment into the hands of readers as soon as possible.

Read information about the authorD.K. Scott has been fascinated with the craft of writing for years. She started creating poetry at the age of ten, and outlined her first novel at fifteen. An obsession with all things suspenseful started at an early age for D.K. as well. A lover of mysteries in all forms, she has been known to binge-watch police procedurals and legal dramas when time allows.
Thrillers and the like represent a triple threat in her life: she is often writing one, reading another, and listening to a third. She also may or may not be addicted to audio books to the point that she can’t drive anywhere without one.
D.K. loves watching the stock market and finds financial scandals particularly riveting. She is also a sucker for a good romance. All of these interests, along with her mild infatuation with Dubai have been melded into her first novel in the Dubai Desert Series, Cold Desert.
Her fast-paced Dubai Desert Series takes you to an exotic locale where history and modernity often clash in tandem with virtue and unspeakable evil. D.K. is currently working on the second book in the series in between daydreaming of a return trip to Dubai. Married with two children, D.K. lives in Massachusetts.
