is the tenth in her Jeri Howard series. For anyone caught in the old movie scene, this novel is a treasure trove. For mystery lovers,
is another in a long line of get-your-teeth-into mysteries by Janet Dawson. For the reader who thrives on both, kick off your shoes, light a fire, pour a glass of wine and curl up in a really comfortable chair to enjoy Dawson's latest.
akland PI Jeri Howard chances upon a movie memorabilia shop. The sales clerk makes a reference to the fact that Jeri's grandmother was a
back in the late thirties and early forties. He claims that she was questioned about a murder that was never solved.
his leads Jeri on a chase to find anyone who would know anything about her grandmother in those years. The method of searching is so much easier today that it makes one realize that you truly can run but you can't hide.
tightly woven plot keeps Jeri on the trail until once again she reaches her goal of clearing her grandmother's name. Jeri is very likable and I admire her doggedness to get the job done no matter what it entails. A good read once again. Did you expect less? Never do that with a Janet Dawson novel.
