NEW FICTION

The Bones of Paris : by Laurie R. King. Paris, France: September 1929. For Harris Stuyvesant, the assignment is a private investigator’s dream— He’s getting paid to troll the cafes and bars of Montparnasse, looking for a pretty young woman, Philippa Crosby, her family became alarmed when she stopped all communications, and Stuyvesant agrees to track her down. He finds she is known by many of it’s famous- and infamous inhabitants of the expatriate community of artists and writers. When the evidence leads him to the Theatre du Grand-Guignol in Montmartre, his investigation takes a sharp turn. Murder, insanity, and sexual perversion are all staged to shocking, brutal effect: depravity as art, savage human nature on stage. Here, amid the glittering lights of the cabarets, hides a monster, and Stuyvesant will have to descend into the darkest depths of perversion to find a killer…..

W is for Wasted, by Sue Grafton. Two dead bodies changed the course of my life that fall. One of them I knew and the other I’d never laid eyes on until I saw him in the morgue. The first was a local PI of suspect reputation. He’s been gunned down near a beach at Santa Teresa. It looked like a robbery gone bad. The other was on the beach six weeks later. He’d been sleeping rough, probably homeless, no identification. A slip of paper with Millhone’s name and number found in his pants pocket. The coroner asked her to come to the morgue to see if she could ID him. Two seemly unrelated deaths, one a murder, the other apparently of natural causes. As she digs deeper into the mystery of the John Doe, some very strange linkages begin to emerge. Before long at least one aspect is solved as Kinsey literally finds the key to his identity and just like that the “ she says, the lid to Pandoras box flew open. It would take me another day before I understood how many imps had been freed, but for the moment, I was inordinately pleased with myself.” W is for….wanderer…..worthless…..wronged…..

Found in the Surf and Sand motel the dead woman might be 20 or a little younger. Whether the name she used on the motel register is correct or not is any one’s guess. Naked and dead with no identification makes things hard with identifying her. Then there is the compounding fact she drove a car with stolen plates. Finding out who she was is going to be a huge problem and a definite hindrance to the homicide investigation. What is clear from the get go that based on where she has been found and her recent short stays at the run down motel Jesse Stone has quickly determined that she is making money the old fashioned way. Despite the serious efforts of the two different pimps, who both want her in their stables, her death has escalated the tensions in the situation. Jesse will deal with that later——right now he wants to identify her for her parents and find her killer….
