9780738711157: Beating the Babushka (The Cape Weathers Investigations)

A movie producer hurtles to his death from the top of the Golden Gate Bridge, an apparent suicide that shocks the film community and puts a two hundred million dollar production in jeopardy.

His colleague, Grace, doesn't believe it was suicide and turns to private detec-tive Cape Weathers to find the truth. To solve the case, Cape and his friend Sally–an assassin raised by the Triads–take on the Russian mob, a major movie studio, and a recalcitrant police department by enlisting the help of rogue cops, computer hackers, and an investigative journalist who just doesn't give a damn. But with a sniper on their trail, the challenge will be staying alive long enough to find out the truth.

About the Author:

Tim Maleeny is a San Francisco-based writer whose short stories appear in DEATH DO US PART, an anthology from Mystery Writers of America edited by Harlan Coben, and also Alfred Hitchcock's Mystery Magazine. Stealing the Dragon is the first in an ongoing series featuring private eye Cape Weathers and his deadly companion Sally.

Review:

"...[an] exceptional thriller." -- Hidden Staircase Mystery Books/Mysterious Reviews

"...great action sequences and a complex story arc..." -- Spinetingler Magazine

"Just six months after Stealing the Dragon Tim Maleeny gives us another Cape Weathers book that is every bit as fun and exciting. Beating the Babushka is an entertaining entry into a series that offers up a lot of thrills and action and doesn't disappoint." -- FantasyBookSpot.com

"[A] first-rate private eye novel." -- Mary Helen Becker, freelance mystery reviewer, appeared in the Madison Capital Times Oct. 17, 2007

Tim Maleeny is very talented and stands up as an equal to the San Francisco locale established by mystery writer Domenic Stansberry, as he provides the reader with an understanding of the sometimes foggy and interwoven Bay Area communities." -- ILoveAMystery.com
