Laurel Dewey’s Detective Jane Perry is quickly becoming one of the most distinctive, dynamic, and unforgettable characters in suspense fiction today. She’s rock hard, but capable of extraordinary tenderness. She’s a brilliant cop, but she’s capable of making life-altering mistakes. She’s uncannily talented, and she’s heartbreakingly human.
In this novella, set before the action in Dewey’s first novel, Protector, a man named Devinder Bashir reaches across the threshold of the hereafter to ask for Jane’s help. When Jane investigates his case, she learns that the man died ignominiously, but not suspiciously. But when Bashir continues to haunt her dreams, she realizes that the story of the man’s death is far from finished.
An Unfinished Death
The story line was so imaginative, but the 'F' word was used far too many times. I did want the story to go on about 800 more pages. I read during lunch and lunch is still not finished, but the book is. Rats...I wanted more
A nice NOVELLA to set the tone for the Jane Perry book series
I don't know why this novella got such low ratings. It was AWESOME! This takes place before the events in PROTECTOR, the first Jane Perry novel by Laurel Dewey. It's very cool and features the other side and Jane's visit there during one of her alcoholic benders. She meets a man there, Devinder Bashir, who claims he is stuck in a middle world because his death was not what it was made out to be. Until Jane can help solve his murder (thought to be a suicide), he cannot ascend to heaven. So, we have this tough female cop who's rough and battling the bottle trying to solve a murder based on what a dead man is telling her. Obviously, she thinks she's losing her mind but she keeps pursuing it and.....well, don't want to give away the rest.
This is only 48 pages long (that's fine....it's a novella, after all) but for 99 cents, who cares? Great coffee break read and nice to see Dewey releasing these shorts in between novels.
