Summary
Internationally bestselling novelists each in their own right, husband and wife Jonathan and Faye Kellerman team up for a powerful one-two punch with Capital Crimes, a gripping pair of original crime thrillers set in two cities rich in atmosphere, and featuring appearances by the authors' signature heroes: LAPD lieutenant Peter Decker and psychologist sleuth Dr. Alex Delaware. MY SISTER'S KEEPER: BERKELEY Progressive state representative Davida Grayson fits in well with her Berkeley constituents. But some of Davida's views have made her unpopular elsewhere. Davida's foes are numerous: politicians on the other side of the aisle, racist hatemongers, even dissenters in her own party. Still, no one suspects that any buttons Davida might push could evoke deadly force. But now Davida lies brutally murdered in her office, and Berkeley homicide detectives Will Barnes and Amanda Isis must unravel Davida's complex, surprising life in order to find her killer. As they dig deeper, Will and Amanda realize that the real Davida Grayson was someone the public never knew. The investigation draws the detectives into a labyrinth of hidden sexuality, dark secrets, betrayal, and bloody vengeance that leads tortuously into madness. With time short and the suspect list long, Barnes and Isis must find the answers before the killer pulls off a repeat performance. MUSIC CITY BREAKDOWN: NASHVILLE Baker Southerby, the son of musicians, was a child prodigy performer. But something Baker won't talk about leads him to quit the honky-tonk circuit, become a Nashville cop, and never look back. His partner, Lamar Van Gundy, is a would-be studio bassist from up North who never quite made the cut in Music City, so instead earned himself a detective's badge. Now both men are members of Nashville PD's elite Murder Squad, with a solid record for solves. But when they catch a homicide that's high-profile even for a city where musical celebrity is routine, their skills are tested: Jack Jeffries, a rock legend who cast aside personal demons and emerged from retirement to perform at a charity benefit, has been discovered in a ditch near the Cumberland River, his throat slashed. It's a whodunit as heartbreaking as it is baffling. Southerby and Van Gundy understand the rhythms of the music biz as intimately as the streets they workand know that both have their dark sides. What the detectives don't realize is just how high the price of success can be. Long before the last notes of Jack Jeffries's final song have faded, Southerby and Van Gundy will learn about the dangers of concealing a hidden past . . . the hard way. Capital Crimesis page-turning, psychologically resonant suspensejust what we've come to expect from two of the world's most successful crime writers.

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "The Kellermans have been writing together and separately for decades. Their latest collaboration seems thrown together and listless compared with the high suspense they are capable of generating. This book houses two novellas set in two different state capitals. Each has a different writing style, grating in its own way. The first novella, My Sister's Keeper, takes the high-romance road toward inflated writing. Set in Berkeley, California, the story centers on the murder of Congresswoman Davida Grayson in her office. Berkeley Police Detective William Barnes, who has known Grayson for years, takes the case, which, naturally presents a host of suspects including Davida's partner, who announces dramatically (and unnecessarily in 2006): I'm Minette. Her lover. Hackeneyed plot with stilted dialogue. The second novella, Music City Breakdown, swings the other way, with self-consciously tough-guy prose and a formulaic plot focusing on the murder of an L.A. singer transplanted to Nashville. The dialogue sounds forced throughout, the plot plods along, barely overcoming nearly indigestible chunks of backstory. The Kellermans' track record ensures demand for this distinctly lesser effort, but even devoted fans are likely to be disappointed. --Connie Fletcher Copyright 2006 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "The second collaboration by bestsellers Jonathan and Faye Kellerman (after Double Homicide) offers two thin novellas that dedicated fans will most appreciate. In the first, My Sister's Keeper, Faye Kellerman's LAPD detective Peter Decker makes an extended cameo role in an inquiry into the murder of an activist lesbian California state representative, Davida Grayson. Grayson, who was the focus of threats from politicians and members of the radical right opposed to her support for stem-cell research, is found shot to death in her Berkeley office; an uninspired pair of local police find that the dead woman's personal relationships, rather than her politics, may have motivated the killer. The second story, Music City Breakdown, gives Jonathan Kellerman's consulting psychologist, Alex Delaware, a little more to do after Nashville detectives probing the stabbing murder of recording artist Jack Jeffries learn that Delaware had been treating the dead man. The solution is as unsurprising as that of My Sister's Keeper. (Nov. 21) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved"
