ROOT OF ALL EVIL: What seems like a simple case of death from a drug overdose turns into a lot more when it is discovered that the victim -- a beautiful young blonde -- was involved in a money-making scheme with a fast-talking pilot, a civil servant, and a former Russian spy wanted by the FBI. And until Mendoza and his men get a line on their racket, they'll never know why -- or by whom -- the blonde was murdered.
MARK OF MURDER: Four murders in ten days and the attempted murder of Sergeant Hackett -- fighting for his life in a coma -- cut short Lt. Mendoza's Bermuda vacation. Hacket was working on the "private kill" of a well-to-do chiropractor who hd almost as many enemies as he had patients.
THE DEATH-BRINGERS: A daring bank robber turned cop killer gets top priority on the L.A.P.D.'s list, while Mendoza and his squad also have to deal with the shooting of a young teenager, the seemingly senseless killings of two college students, and the murder of a "skid row" bum whose lifestyle hardly reflected what he was, a "hot money" man in a number of headline heists.
COFFIN CORNER: Mendoza and the men of the L.A.P.D. Homicide Division are yawning with boredom -- but not for long. All at once, Mendoza and his men are enmeshed in a young woman's apparent -- maybe too apparent -- suicide, the hit-and-run killing of a cop that may or may not have been accidental, and the case of a heart-attack victim found in a cluttered antique shop.
Gathered together for the first time in one hardcover edition, SHANNON'S CHOICE offers diehad Shannon/Mendoza fans -- as well as those who will meet the wily detective for the first time -- a suspense-filled volume to enjoy again and again.« less
