KEEP COOL, MR. JONES by Timothy Fuller


Email this review


Ten years ago, Harvard Has a Homicide introduced Jupiter Jones to his fans. There have been a slim number of mysteries since then- and now, after a long silence (Jupiter has gone through war, marriage and parenthood) he returns, and a neighborhood party in a Boston suburb produces the makings of murder. Four people are shut in a freezer- rescued in time- but on the heels of this presumed attempt at murder, the local chief of police is killed, and an Indian half-breed, who was lingering in the neighborhood of the party, disappears. The following of various clues reveals some local skeletons and scandals- and at the end, a chance unravelling of a code leading to hidden treasure- and the identity of the killer. Good story with enough of suspense for the fans.
