Editorial Reviews


5 Stars

Seagate is a foul-mouthed recovering alcoholic with an in-your-face attitude.Miner is a Mormon who would probably describe himself as a bit of a Boy Scout. They'realways giving each other a hard time, but there is never any doubt that despitetheir differences, they view themselves as a team and have mutual respect. Thedynamics of these two opposites working together added a lot for me, not onlyin the humor inherent in such a pairing, but the different knowledge andviewpoint each brought to the investigation.

From the Author

The Detectives Seagate and Miner Mystery series comprises nine books:
  1. Big Sick Heart
  2. Deviations
  3. The Broken Saint
  4. Three-Ways
  5. Fractures
  6. The Reveal
  7. Players
  8. Swerve
  9. Victim Three
Like the three previous books, Three-Ways is narrated by Detective Karen Seagate. She is 42, a recoveringalcoholic who is trying to figure out how to deal with her disease, aby-the-books chief, a new boyfriend with his own attic full of emotional baggage, and a world that, in general, makes little sense. She wants to dislike her young partner, Ryan Miner, a cheerful Mormon with a wifeand 2.5 kids, but with this, as with most of her goals, she fails.

Three-Ways is about the murder of Austin Sulenka, a graduate student who is a sexaddict. Seagate and Miner start with the three women he had sex with onhis last night on earth: his girlfriend, who charms every man with herstriking beauty; a former student in his writing course who is stillbitter because he reneged on the promise to give her a B if she sleptwith him; and his thesis adviser, who might have revealed to him asecret in her past that could destroy her career.

Investigatingthe various love and sex triangles that complicated the victim's shortlife, Karen Seagate finds herself in a three-way relationship thatpromises to jeopardize her own fragile sobriety.

Detective KarenSeagate is foul-mouthed, cynical, rude, depressed, and insubordinate.She lies constantly and assumes that most of what people say is untrue.She expects nothing good to happen to her and is rarely surprised. She's too high-maintenance for most men and for all bosses. Really, therewould be no good reason for anyone to want to have anything to do withher--that is, if she were not extremely good at figuring out which liaris also a killer.

Average review on Amazon: 4.6

"Thecharacters are captivating, some tugged at my heartstrings and othersgot under my skin. It's fast paced and kept me guessing until the end.If you're a mystery fan then you'll love this book and if you're not afan of this genre this could be the book that converts you." -Amazonreviewer

"You will have a hard time finding a better way toentertain yourself with a book; this is fine summer reading." -Amazonreviewer
