About the Author
Early readers said...
"F. M. Meredith has done it again, produced another immensely satisfying episode in her Rocky Bluff Police Department murder mystery series. Think Ed McBain’s 87th precinct series mellowed out in a California beach town. Dangerous Impulses, ninth in the series, finds Gordon Butler orienting a new officer, the drop-dead beautiful Lizette Gibbs, and fans of the series immediately know the loveable but somewhat hapless Butler is going to fall hard. But before he can even think about making a move, they find the bodies of a woman and her teenage son… Before the RBPD can sort out the double homicide, a number of teenagers are sickened by a “recreational” drug. No one will say what the drug is or who brought it to the party. With its terse prose, ingenious plot, heart-warming moments, suspense and satisfying wrap-up, Dangerous Impulses will keep Meredith’s fans happy and win her many new ones." --J. Michael Orenduff, author of the award-winning Pot Thief murder mysteries
"Good read that had me playing detective along with the characters. The cops and the investigation process were well fleshed out with little details that really do occur in a cop's world. I could almost smell the chow mein, the eucalyptus and the blood." --Linda Rooney-Card
Dangerous Impulses had me holding my breath and reading late into the night. Meredith's characters suck you in as they move closer to each other and a very satisfying conclusion. --Michelle J.G. Perin, MS Board Member, Public Safety Writers Association (PSWA) Fundraising Coordinator, Lane Area Ferret Shelter & Rescue, Volunteer Firefighter, South Lane County Fire & Rescue

Detectives Frank Marshall and Doug Milligan are trying to solve the brutal murder of a high school student and his mother. Their investigation leads them to believe that the crimes were committed by either the woman's ex-husband, her married lover or his wife. Meanwhile, Officers Stacey Milligan and new hire, Lizette Gibbs, are interviewing teenagers in an attempt to discover who brought the unknown drug, which sent most of them to the hospital and ultimately killed one girl, to the party they attended,
The solution to the two crimes both surprised and satisfied me as a reader. I highly recommend "Dangerous Impulses."
This time, they are faced with a double murder followed by a teenage party during which several of the attendees are poisoned. The two investigations converge, but I won't provide a spoiler.
This is a tight, fast, read that leaves the reader wanting more. Fortunately, there's always the promise of another adventure!
Lunchtime found me reading while I ate and I barely made it back to work in time!
Rushed home and advised the family I was exhausted and had to just rest and be quiet for awhile. Poked my nose back into the book and couldn't come back out until I'd finished it. Grateful for a thoughtful family and for a book that totally swept me away for awhile.
Boy! I needed that.
Even as tired as I was after work, I didn't have any trouble following all the characters in this story. What a great plot and I enjoyed the path Marilyn took to the 'reveal'. Wow! Fabulous.
Looking forward to checking out the first book in this series and reading my way to whatever F.M. Meredith will come up with next! I do enjoy the mix of female cops working with male cops.
