Hawkman, Tom Casey, now owns
a Private Investigation business. He is married to Jennifer and
has adopted a son Sam. Hawkman's PI Agency is off to a fine beginning,
cases are beginning to come in, things are going good.
Nancy Gilbert is terrified that
she is going to be the next victim of the person who killed her
sister. She is certain her former husband Drew Harland is Tonia's
murderer, of course she comes to Hawkman for help in finding
the killer. Convicted of bank robbery almost a decade ago, Harland
has just gotten out of jail on 'good behavior' and is now out
looking for Nancy.
It is not long before Hawkman
begins to uncover a whole lot more to the story than Nancy realized.
Following Drew's death, Nancy's attorney husband Jack convinces
her that Hawkman is no longer needed; despite Nancy's dismissal
Hawkman continues his investigation and begins to uncover some
very interesting facts concerning both Tonia and Nancy's husband
Writer LaPierre has produced
an appealing treatise filled with good writing, entertaining
characters and creditable situation. She skillfully hooks the
reader with her opening line and holds interest right on through
to the end of the narrative. Evocative of the drama found in
Christine Spindler's Faces of Fear along with the rich characterizations
present in Paula Boyd's Hot Enough To Kill, LaPierre's Double
Trouble is a gripping read. Betty throws a red herring or two
into the mix just to keep the reader on their toes.
