An Early Grave, Anyone? : A Murder Mystery
The tennis club in stately Portuguese Hills in southern California has been rocked by a problem: the murder of one of its own. Join private detective Joe Downing as he unravels the grisly demise of one of the tennis club regulars: The list of suspects includes Todd Vickers, a crack tennis player and rising star in his accounting firm, and also "the Governor," an unkempt soul cracking wise with a dingy office in Little Tokyo in downtown L.A., and, last but not least, the seemingly unobtrusive homeless guy, nicknamed Khaki Pants. The plot is full of fast-paced adventures, including a trip to the bank to investigate a mysterious safe deposit box and the message therein, to Little Tokyo to infiltrate an insider trading operation, and, finally, back to the tennis club at midnight for the climatic scene. Full of intense confrontations with gritty characters, clever dialogue from the Governor, and shadowy adventures, this entertaining, hard-boiled murder mystery will keep you turning pages until you at last learn the fate of a troubled tennis club.
