Vol. 10-13 of the AWARD-WINNING Jeri Howard Murder Mystery Series now comes in a handsome box set at an even more appealing price! "Dawson keeps suspense and interest at high pitch." -Publishers Weekly

If you love female sleuths like Sue Grafton's Kinsey Millhone, Linda Barnes' Carlotta Carlyle and Marcia Muller's Sharon McCone, Jeri Howard will be your next favorite character -- a shrewd, savvy PI who dominates any case that comes her way.

"Dawson writes believable dialogue, creates quickly realized and appealing characters and has a particularly nice atmospheric touch."-San Francisco Examiner


MURDER MAKES A COMEBACK - READY FOR ITS CLOSEUP! Was Jeri Howard's grandmother a murder suspect? The Oakland private investigator has a chance encounter in a movie memorabilia shop. Now she's on a quest to find the truth about her grandmother, actress Jerusha Layne, and the 1941 murder of a British expatriate actor, shot dead in his Hollywood bungalow.


THE MORGUE. THE LAST PLACE JERI HOWARD WANTS TO BE - ESPECIALLY IF THE BODY IS THAT OF HER KID BROTHER. Missing is not a word Jeri wants to hear about her brother Brian. He's been gone four days. And that body in the morgue? It was found on a burned-out boat - along with Brian's MedicAlert bracelet. The trail is getting cold.


OAKLAND. A CITY SHAPED BY WATER, MONEY, GREED - AND MURDER. Jeri Howard worked at an Oakland private investigator firm before she set out on her own. Her former colleague Cal Brady, an alcoholic, is now sober, working as a security guard at a construction site on Oakland's gritty waterfront. His body washes up in the estuary. Did he fall off the wagon and into the water? His daughter isn't buying that story. She thinks Cal was murdered.


FIRE CAN BE DEADLY - IN THE WRONG HANDS. That's what PI Jeri Howard learns when her New Orleans vacation turns into a case. A phone call from her friend Davina sets events in motion. Davina's sister Laurette, already in a bad place after the loss of husband and child, has a new boyfriend. He's a mercurial musician who calls himself Slade.
Her family doesn't like him. As it turns out, they have good reason. Slade has a disturbing history of getting even - and setting fires. It's a lethal combination.
