Summary:

Internationally bestselling husband and wife Jonathan and Faye Kellerman team up for a powerful one-two punch with Capital Crimes, a gripping pair of original crime thrillers.

MY SISTER'S KEEPER: BERKELEY
Some of progressive state representative Davida Grayson's views have made her unpopular. Although her foes are numerous no one suspects that any buttons Davida might push could evoke deadly force.
But now Davida lies brutally murdered in her office, and Berkeley homicide detectives Will Barnes and Amanda Isis must unravel Davida's complex, before the killer pulls off a repeat performance.

MUSIC CITY BREAKDOWN: NASHVILLE
Baker Southerby was a child prodigy performer. But something leads him to become a Nashville cop. His partner, Lamar Van Gundy, is a would-be studio bassist who earned himself a detective's badge. As part of Nashville PD's elite Murder Squad, they catch a homicide that's high-profile even for a city where musical celebrity is routine.
Capital Crimes is page-turning, psychologically resonant suspense-just what we've come to expect from two of the world's most successful crime writers.

Genres:

  • Kay

    This was a first for me to have two stories in one and I'm not sure I was a fan. While the stories were ok, they were very short.

  • Tricia

    A vague story-line told in a whiny and saccarhin tone, rather like nails on a chalkboard. Not worth the listen.

  • Michael Scott

    Capital Crimes is coined as another Kellerman collaboration. However, like their other "collaboration", that is what this book is not. Like their other book, this is essentially 1 book containing two novellas, one from each spouse. In each, the characters we love to read about in each authors series' make cameo appearances, but are not the primary characters in the story. While this collection is much better than their last book together by far, these two novellas are not their best work. Entertaining, yes... but they've both done much better work. I would like to see a true collaboration - one in which the Deckers meet the Delaware / Sturgis crew. I think that would be a book to look forward to, and not just in a novella. The one great thing about this book is that John Rubenstein is the narrator. He's been the narrator for every Delaware novel I've listened to so far, and I really enjoy his work. His voice has a way of drawing you right into the story with him.
