J. L. Abramo in his new book, “Circle The Runway book coverCircling The Runway” Book Four in the Jake Diamond Mystery series published by Down & Out Books gives us another adventure with Jake Diamond.

From the back cover: Private Investigator Jacob Diamond and San Francisco Detective Sergeant Roxton Johnson are famous for not getting along. Cats and dogs. Oil and water. Liston and Ali. Jake and Rocky.

When an assistant district attorney is murdered in his high-rise apartment building, and Johnson suspects his lieutenant may have something to do with it, he can think of no one else to turn to for help–no one he can trust–except Jake Diamond.

If the mismatched duo can avoid stepping on each other’s toes long enough–they may be able to stop circling the runway and land on the villain’s doorstep. Lieutenant Laura Lopez, Detective Ray Boyle, Joey Clams, Vinnie Strings and Darlene Roman are all back in the first new Jake Diamond escapade since “Counting to Infinity”.

Someone has murdered an assistant district attorney. Detective Sergeant Roxton Johnson thinks his Lieutenant may have done it. However he cannot investigate the case so he asks Jake to do it. Jake Diamond is a private investigator cut from the old school P.I. of the forties and fifties. The bad guys are really bad and they will stop at nothing to make sure that no one stands in their way. Good guys are going to get hurt and it is going to take all of Jake’s resources just to make sure he stays alive. “Circling The Runway” is going to keep you on your toes as you race along trying to keep up with all that is going on. The suspense is practically constant, only sporadically does Mr. Abramo let you come up for air. Let me assure you that once you get started with “Circling The Runway” you are not going to want to stop until you finish so I recommend you start early. Mr. Abramo has provided us with a very clever exciting book and I look forward to the next book in this series.
