From the Inside Flap
o Manibusan, a Filipino professor of history at Cal State, is murdered, Jeri Howard's father, a colleague of the victim, hires her to find the man's next of kind and learn the truth behind his death. Jeri learns a lot, especially about old friends and political feuds, and finds herself following the twisted trail of clues that led to the man's murder....
I really like this series and enjoy the character Jeri Howard and all the other characters. What makes this 4 star instead of 5 is due to the editing. I have Kindle versions of this series and other novels and there's constant misspelling and bad punctuation but it seems to be a Kindle or e reader thing. I'm looking forward to reading more of Janet Dawson's Jeri!
Jeri Howard has a way of getting you interested in her mysteries right from the start. I've been reading her Jeri Howard mysteries in order this summer and I feel as though I'm part of Jeri's family. This mystery mixes history of the Philippines with it and I felt as though I learned quite a bit.
I guess I was expecting something a little more pedestrian, because it was a free selection, but WOW was I surprised. Good story, excellent characters and I felt like I was in those California cities where it takes place. I will be looking for other titles by this author!
I love this series of books. The author writes in a style that makes reading easy & enjoyable. Her main character (Jeri Howard) is relatable & human in addition to using common sense to solve her cases. I look forward to my bedtime reading.
I didn't enjoy this book as much as the first Jeri Howard novel. It seemed to get bogged down in the middle with too much politics that needed to be explained more smoothly. I enjoyed the historical tie-in to WW 2 Philippines when we finally got there. I did not guess one of the killers 'til the end. I also found it unrealistic that Jeri was ALWAYS able to convince people to talk to her. Nonetheless, I will try the next book in the series.
