This trilogy describes ex-USN Master-at-Arms Mary Jo Melendez's adventures as US and several other countries' agents pursue her and her MECH friends ("Mechanically Enhanced Cybernetic Humans") to acquire that super-soldier technology.
Ex-USN Master-at-Arms Third Class Mary Jo Melendez struggles with restarting her life until she is hired as a security guard for an R&D firm with Pentagon contracts. She is framed after a violent break-in and lands in prison. She escapes, struggles to clear her name, and seeks revenge for her sister and brother-in-law’s deaths, during a journey that takes her around Europe and South America.
Mary Jo Melendez is back. The protagonist of Muddlin’ Through takes a security job in the Silicon Valley after bouncing across the U.S. through temporary jobs. Her future isn’t all bright, though, as she discovers she has a stalker. She hires a PI for surveillance and protection who becomes a new love interest. Will this ex-USN Master-at-Arms survive this time?
Mary Jo is back. Her domestic bliss is rudely interrupted as a mercenary tries to kidnap her adopted children. She and husband Mario have a theory about why: after fighting off CIA and SVR agents in the previous novels in this series, it’s now the Chinese government that wants the super-soldier technology of her MECH friends (“Mechanically Enhanced Cybernetic Humans”) who are hiding in France.
