About this title

Synopsis:

“A welcome addition to this tough genre.” The New York Times Book Review

“Dawson keeps suspense and interest at high pitch.” Publishers Weekly

“A satisfyingly complex and multilayered novel . . . A wonderfully told and compelling story from a writer who’s in complete control – as is her heroine – from start to finish. We’ll feel cheated if there aren’t more Jeri Howard books to come.” The Denver Post.

“An auspicious debut.” New York Daily News

“Dawon writes believable dialogue, creates quickly realized and appealing characters and has a particularly nice atmospheric touch.” San Francisco Examiner

Kindred Crimes - Winner, St. Martin’s Press/Private Eye Writers of America contest for Best First Private Eye Novel. Shamus, Anthony and Macavity award nominee.

Renee Foster left her toddler son with her mother-in-law, cleaned out the joint bank account – and vanished. Now her husband wants Oakland private investigator Jeri Howard to find his wife, though it looks like she doesn’t want to be found.

A simple missing persons case? There’s nothing simple about it. People aren’t who they seem. The past comes back with a vengeance. And the trail leads to murder.

From the Inside Flap:

When P.I. Jeri Howard takes on a missing-persons case, she's not the only person confused. The vanished woman's husband doesn't even know his wife's real name. But as Jeri digs deeper, she reveals long-buried secrets, old public scandals, and the real possibility that too much knowledge is a dangerous thing...
"A welcome addition to this tough genre."
