Back Cover / Inside Flap:"My Sister's Keeper: Berkeley

When progressive state representative Davida Grayson is brutally murdered, homicide detectives Will Barnes and Amanda Isis investigate - and discover a labyrinth of dark secrets and bloody vengeance from which the only way out may be death.

Music City Breakdown: Nashville

Detective team Baker Southerby and Lamar Van Gundy understand the rhythms of the music biz as intimately as the streets they work. But when rock legend Jack Jeffries ends up in a ditch with his throat slashed, they find out just how high the price of success can be.

Capital Crimes is page-turning, psychologically resonant suspense - just what we've come to expect from two of the world's most successful crime writers."

Review:These two novellas by the Kellermans are excellent! I have no former experience with Jonathan, but I'm an avid fan of Faye and her characters, Peter Decker and Rina Lazarus. Her same uncanny sense of timing comes through in the first novella in this book, "My Sister's Keeper" - in a fast-paced plot, character depth is masterfully established while twists are introduced perfectly. Bravo! And as for Jonathan...I need to go find more of his works, because I thoroughly enjoyed my first foray into his writing.

If you have read or are planning to read this book, please make sure to stop back by and leave me a comment to let me know your own thoughts!

From my library to yours,
