When death sneaks into the sleepy town of Twin Lakes, Texas, the entire community is shaken to its roots

Doubletake, the first mystery I wrote a number of years ago with a collaborator, Margaret Sutton, has found new life. The revised and updated version is now available with a terrific new cover by Dany Russell. The book had a very short life some years ago with a small publisher who let it languish, and I am happy to have it available again.

When first written, Margaret and I used a pen name, Sutton Miller, and reviewers thought the book had been written by a man. I guess we got the hard edges right.

Death sneaks in the back door of the peaceful town of Twin Lakes, Texas and nothing is ever the same again.

Homicide detective, Barbara Hobkins, is thrust headlong into the investigation. A product of the ‘new direction’ in law enforcement, her strength comes from a degree in psychology and an intuition that has served her well.

But will that be enough when she’s up against a sadistic killer?

Her partner, Keith Reeves wants nothing more than to solve this case so he can have one normal night at home with his family. He fights the pressure to nail somebody, any ‘somebody’, to satisfy the powers above.

The suspect, Royce Wertco, is a teenage punk; capable of the numerous petty crimes he’s been convicted of in the past, but not murder. Barbara knows this with every fiber of her being, but can she prove it?

Convinced the real killer is also responsible for a series of murders in Dallas, Hobkins tracks him to his seedy hidey-hole. There, her investigation turns into a chilling race for her life and she almost becomes a victim of Doubletake.
