Double Homicide

By Faye Kellerman, Jonathan Kellerman (Electronic Book, 2004)
DOUBLE HOMICIDE consists of two short crime novels, each co-written by Jonathan and Faye Kellerman. IN THE LAND OF THE GIANTS Boston homicide detectives Michael McCain and Doris Sylvestor are investigating the fatal shooting of Boston Ferris College basketball star Julius van Beest. The crime took place in a crowded bar, but it takes a lot a pavement-pounding to find one scared witness who actually saw the shooter pull the trigger. The case is blown apart when the autopsy reveals an unexpected cause of death. Michael and Doris hunt for the truth, and what they find is chilling: Van Beest discovered he had a potentially fatal medical condition during high school, and his family covered it up so he could continue to play, risking-and losing-his life for a moment of glory on court. STILL LIFE-When Larry Olafson is found dead on the floor of his Santa Fe art gallery, Detectives Darryl Two Moons and Steve Katz are on the case. Olafson was a member of an environmental group seeking to restrict private grazing by small ranchers, leaving these ranchers in financial straits, so suspects abound. The break comes when an inventory of the gallery turns up several missing paintings by the same local artist, all depicting a naked toddler-age girl and boy. Two Moons and Katz enter a dangerous world where art and exploitation, creativity and impropriety collide, where a father's shame can lead to rage and bloodshed.
