Double Pass

(The seventh book in the Burnside Mystery series)
A novel by

Money makes people do strange things. Even commit murder...

Funds have been stolen from an elite Pasadena private school, and after bringing in P.I. Burnside to investigate, he uncovers far more. In addition to finding a tangled web of long-held secrets, a seemingly straightforward case of embezzlement suddenly evolves into a brutal series of killings.

From seething rivalries to old resentments to sordid affairs, many suspects have a shady past to hide -- and a desperate reason to commit a capital crime. And through it all, a sordid betrayal from Burnside's own past continues to haunt him, waiting for an opportune moment to materialize.

Double Pass leads readers down a trail of theft, murder and deceit, with sharply honed banter and strikingly original characters. It is a tightly written story that is loaded with both suspense and humor, as well as some jaw-dropping surprises!

David Chill's colorful and brilliant mystery captures both Raymond Chandler's gritty vision and Robert B. Parker's biting humor. This is a well-crafted novel, and is the embodiment of the classic Southern California noir thriller, set against a late summer backdrop that is both sizzling hot and eerily quiet.
