crimes in two different cities!
Boston - Dorothy Breton is a
detective. She is raising two teenage sons, Marcus and
Spencer. Marcus has his heart set on making it to the big time
in basketball. One day while cleaning Spencer's backpack,
Dorothy found a gun buried beneath some rotten food. She
wasn't being nosy - she had to clean the backpack because it
smelled. Dorothy asked Marcus if he knew why his brother was
carrying a gun in his backpack. Marcus told her maybe it makes
Spencer feel secure.
Basketball is important in this
town. It's almost an obsession. One night a foul during
a game leads to a fatal shooting.
Dorothy receives a
call from Marcus informing her of the shooting. The team's
star forward was killed. Now the city insists that
Dorothy and her partner, Michael McCain, find the person
Do they succeed? What was Spencer doing
with a gun in his backpack?
Santa Fe- It's the holiday season
and police officers Darrel Two Moons and Steve Katz are expecting
the usual trouble that happens this time of the year. However,
they receive a call that gives them much more than the usual.
An art gallery owner, Lawrence Olafson, was found
Who would want to kill Olafson? Well, it's
not like he didn't have any enemies. He had plenty that would
want him dead.
Katz and Two Moons start their investigation
to find the killer and at the same time enter a world of
Let there be no doubt, the readers are in for DOUBLE
enjoyment. There is really no clue as to whether Jonathan
wrote the "Boston" part and Faye the "Santa Fe" section or the other
way around. This makes it all the more intriguing. What
makes everything funny is some reviewers are so sure Jonathan wrote
the Boston section and others think Faye wrote it. It just
goes to show you the authors are keeping us guessing. This is
the first time these two authors have written a book together.
The book cover is very clever. On one side you have Double
Homicide Santa Fe. Flip it over and you have Double Homicide
Boston. This is a first in a series of novels by the two
authors. These are short crime stories with exciting plots and
very interesting characters. Faye and Jonathan Kellerman fans
will be delighted! Be sure to add this one to your reading
