For a change, the butler didn’t do it; a bear did. Or did it? In “Unbearably Deadly”, Roger and Suzanne visit Alaska to find out the circumstances surrounding their friends’ deaths. The FBI investigation concludes the cause of death was a tragic accident. With nothing more than a gut feeling that something is amiss, our sleuths head to Alaska to search for the truth. The vast expanse of Denali National Park creates a 6-million acre locked room murder case for our sleuths to solve. There are no suspects, no clues, and little help available. Conspiracies abound and the truth is much more complicated than it appears. Can the detective couple solve their most difficult case to date? Like all of the Roger and Suzanne series on Amazon Kindle, this is a tough, but clean (no cussing, no sexual promiscuity), mystery. Can be read as a series entry or a standalone mystery novel. Free from Kindle Unlimited.
The author is a Professor of Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine at the University of California’s Medical School at Davis, near Sacramento in Northern California. Jerry, a two-time winner of The Indie Book of the Day Award, writes “tweener” mystery books (tough mystery stories that follow the cozy conventions of no graphic sex and no cussing) that are fast moving and entertain the reader. Several of the books introduce the readers to South America, a region where he has lived and worked that is a long way from home for most English speakers. He and his wife Elaine lived previously in Salta, Argentina and Montevideo, Uruguay. Jerry selects the most interesting South American locations he found for Roger and Suzanne to visit while solving miscellaneous murders. Montevideo, Salta, Machu Picchu, the Galapagos Islands, and Iguazu Falls are also characters in these books, and the novels portray these places as vivid and real. Jerry and Elaine breed prize-winning German shorthaired pointer dogs; Elaine also provides technical advice for Jerry’s dog-related novels like The Deadly Dog Show and Hunter Down, as well as editing for all of the books. His most recent novel, Rum, Cigars, and Corpses, is set in Cuba.
