The Trap

American Alana Eastwood’s grandfather, and her only living relative, has taken ill at his home in Germany. Alana travels to be by his side, and while staying at his country cottage, she finds an unopened letter, postmarked 1945, that thrusts her into one of the most notable unsolved mysteries from postwar Germany.

When people turn up dead, the local police are ill equipped to grasp the entire chain of events that the mysterious letter has put into play. It takes investigators Sigmund and Andrew Griegg to connect the police enquiry to neo-Nazis, Mossad, and a secret

hidden in “the trap” for so many years…but it’s the American who holds the link that breaks the chain and solves the mystery.

The Griegg/Eastwood Mysteries take off with book one The Trap. The series brings history alive, balancing conflict, suspense, and climax through the eyes of an intriguing cast of characters.

Advance Praise for The Trap

“Steele excels in exploring logical progressions of power, political purpose, and individual dilemma, arriving at intersections where all three facets coalesce in surprising ways….Historical fiction tempered with mystery doesn’t get much better than this!”

Zen book two

Swiss equestrian, William “Zen” Griegg, skyrockets to the top of the European show jumping circuit. As he sets his sights on the 2000 Olympic Games, his beloved horse, Tiger, goes missing en route to a competition in the United States.

Zen’s father, Sigmund Griegg, again teams with American Alana Eastwood to solve an international mystery that leads them from a secret tunnel in the Owl Mountains of Poland, through the art galleries of Zürich, to the Hamilton Farm Equestrian Center in Gladstone, New Jersey.

Griegg and Eastwood uncover an ingenious plot to pull off the perfect crime. The ransom demand for the safe return of Tiger is lost treasure from World War II that only a handful of people know to exist.

As the clock ticks to reunite Zen with Tiger in time to compete in the Olympic trials, Griegg and Eastwood use the origins of social media to unnerve the abductors and unravel their complex crime.


The story's fiery climax leaves readers to reflect that, we all done at the banquet table of past actions where karma dishes out our last meal.

Advanced Praise for Zen

“Zen takes the reader on a perfect 20-meter circle of international equestrian intrigue…saddle up for a ride through worlds dangerous and delightful in Zen…” —L.A. Sokolowski, The Original Equinista™

“A full-bodied read that is delightfully mercurial and intriguing. It’s an excellent probe into the world of art smuggling that adds just enough history to be thoroughly absorbing without requiring any background in the art world. Likewise, no knowledge of horses is needed to appreciate the exciting world of international show jumping—the plot is grounded in an absorbing mystery that will captivate a broad audience.”
