Money makes people do strange things. Even commit murder…
Funds have been stolen from an elite Pasadena private school, but Detective. Burnside uncovers far more. In addition to finding a tangled web of long-held secrets, a seemingly straightforward case of embezzlement suddenly evolves into a brutal series of killings. From seething rivalries to old resentments to sordid affairs, many suspects have a shady past to hide — and a desperate reason to commit a capital crime.
Double Pass leads readers down a trail of theft, murder, and deceit, with sharply honed banter and strikingly original characters. It is a tightly written story that is loaded with both suspense and humor, as well as some jaw-dropping surprises! This well-crafted novel is the embodiment of the classic Southern California thriller, set against a late summer backdrop that is both sizzling hot and eerily quiet.
