Double Take: a Hank Hammond, P.I. Murder Mystery by J.P. David
Where to Get It:
Barnes and Noble (Nook)
Hank Hammond, ink hardly dry on his private investigator business cards, never anticipated that a chance encounter with a pair of suspicious characters and a mysterious crate would change his life forever. But it did, and nearly ended his life...also very much forever. And the deeper Hank gets into his investigation, the more the danger spreads until ultimately imperiling other innocent--and not so innocent--people, including his client, wealthy octogenarian Walter Tompkins, the client's favorite grandson Richard, and Hank's reluctant investigating partner, legal assistant Lori Reed.
Navigating the varied neighborhoods of Kingston Beach, California, from hilltop country club to Dumpster site, coastal marina to his own apartment, Hank unravels a series of crimes--past, current, and future--and with just the right combination of strength, skill, cunning, and luck he might just be able to prevent the most virulent crime of them all.
With swift pacing, engaging characters, and clever dialogue, J.P. David's Double Take: a Hank Hammond, P.I. murder mystery is reminiscent of Harlan Coben's Myron Bolitar series and Robert Crais' early Elvis Cole, with a bit of Sue Grafton thrown in for good measure.
