This is a brief novelette containing four short stories starring Detective Jane Perry.  The Stories are as follows:


A missing person shows up at one of Perry’s AA meetings asking Perry to find her sister who disappeared on 9/11/2001 in the world trade center.  The mystery will take many twists on the way.

You Can’t Judge a Book By Its Cover

Perry is called on to give a talk at a school.  She runs into a boy with a mysterious secret, one that unnerves her.

You’re Only As Sick As Your Secrets

A man is suspected of killing his wife, but did he?  Find out as Detective Perry uncovers the clues.

Things Aren’t Always What They Seem

Jane Perry wonders into a bar after investigating a crime scene.  It’s there she runs into a friend she had met at AA.  As the night unfolds, so does a story about how the woman ended up at the bar.


Each of these stories is different than the other.  Some are character drive, while others are the quintessential mystery complete with clues.  That tended to give the book a fresh feel.  Throughout you managed to get a broader look at the character of Jane Perry.  I’d recommend this collection of short stories to any fans of the mystery genre.  One again Laurel Dewey delivers an enjoyable reading experience.
