Basketball is an obsession in Beantown, producing emotions that run hot even in the coldest winter. This time, a flagrant foul during a college match leads to a fatal shooting. With the life of its star forward cut short, the entire city is putting pressure on Detectives Dorothy Breton and Michael McCain to find the perpetrator.
For Dorothy, who's raising two teenage boys on her own, the case hits close to home. She knows the victim's mother; their sons played on the same team. To Mickey, who's given up the fight against his bulging waistline, the investigation is poor consolation for being alone this holiday season. Together, they're looking to make an open-and-shut case, until startling evidence comes to light. Now two experienced cops can either keep it simple...or do what's right.
Double Homicide: Santa Fe
It's Christmastime, and police officers Darrel Two Moons and Steve Katz are expecting the usual gang assaults, feuding spouses, and alcohol-related misdemeanors. Then the call comes in from the Historic District: the reported death of an art gallery owner whose bludgeoned body stretches across a bleached pine floor like a big, nasty still life.
When he was in the NYPD, Katz saw more homicides weekly than he's seen in Santa Fe in three years. Two Moons, an Army brat and ex-Marine, is discovering his roots among local Indian potters. But everything personal goes by the wayside as they unearth the victim's enemies and follow a trail of motives that lies buried like layers of paint. As biting winds blow through town, Two Moons and Katz enter a dangerous world where murder has been perfected to an art form.

OK, I guess
Although it is unusual for a husband and wife team to write a book together, one would be hard pressed to nominate a better pair than these. In order to avoide the possible conflicts that could arise from such a joint venture, the Kellermans took a safe route in its format by dividing the book into two relatively separate parts. OK, so far. What I got, I think, is two novellas pasted together. In addition, I'm still looking for the end of the book. It seemed to me that the ending of the book was accomplished in the final thirty or words. Given the proven talents of both authors, I was somewhat disappointed. However, the book (warts and all) is still better than many others being flogged these days.the other within its genere being flogged these days.

I'm a big fan of Jonathan Kellerman, but these two stories were a real disappointment. Neither the plots nor the character development were particularly good, resulting in a couple of bland short stories (novellas only based on their length) with not much to recommend them.
If you really like either of the Kellermans or both, then go ahead and try Double Homicide. Otherwise, save your money...
