Books by James C. Paavola

James C. Paavola has been a practicing psychologist for over 35 years, and he uses that experience to create rich characters such as Lt. Julia Todd, the heroine of his Murder in Memphis series. The first two books, The Chartreuse Envelope and They Gotta Sleep Sometime, also hook readers by setting the action around hot-button issues such as the financial collapse, bullying and sexual activity in retirement homes. Of course it doesn’t hurt that Paavola is writing about his hometown.
