CHAIN REACTION by Lee Jordan
MYSTERY THRILLER
Released: Sept. 13, 1993

Feature writer Alexandra Bridgman—sent by Chronicle Magazine to write a story on the aftermath of a rockslide that killed 15 in the French village of Carriac—meets a universal hostility deeper than simple reluctance to talk to the press about personal disasters. Even her lodgings with romance writer Mary Corton and her harmlessly vain husband Georges are marked by tension, as Mary asks her to try to draw out her son, Neville Johnson, wheelchair-bound and mute since his fruitless attempt to rescue hunchbacked Petit Louis from the calamity. Meanwhile, Jordan (The Deadly Side of the Square, 1991, etc.) drops hints via Neville's boyhood friends Derek Blackwood and Pierre Chervas about what Neville and Petit Louis were really doing when the roof fell in—hints most readers will pick up long before attractive Alex. Genuinely interesting characters are wasted in this remake of Bad Day at Black Rock on the Dordogne, with the dire secret revealed even earlier. Read full book review >
THE DEADLY SIDE OF THE SQUARE by Lee Jordan
MYSTERY THRILLER
Released: Sept. 1, 1991

Murder and skulduggery at a moldering block of flats in Sebastopol Square as somebody seems intent on clearing out the aging tenants, mostly WW II refugees, to make room for tomorrow's luxury living. Is it Ronnie Flower, the shopkeeper's son, and his sluttish girlfriend Denise? Inquisitive rent-collector Hubert Ringham? Estate- agent Kenneth Deacon? The safety of the last surviving tenant, tough old bird Sophie Mendel, depends on her doctor, Maggie Hollis, and Maggie's new boarder, Bill Seago, American-raised son of the last victim, who join forces against the killer, some nasty neighborhood toughs, and jealous Kenneth, whom Bill replaces in Maggie's bed. No surprises here, but the pervasive atmosphere of menacing urban blight is as quietly, unnervingly effective as the melodrama of last year's The Toy Cupboard. Read full book review >
