Circling the Runway
by J.L. Abramo
on Tour April 20th - May 31st, 2015
Private Investigator Jacob Diamond and San Francisco Detective Sergeant Roxton Johnson are famous for not getting along. Cats and dogs. Oil and water. Liston and Ali. Jake and Rocky.
When an assistant district attorney is murdered in his high-rise apartment building, and Johnson suspects his lieutenant may have something to do with it, he can think of no one else to turn to for help—no one he can trust except Jake Diamond.
If the mismatched duo can avoid stepping on each other’s toes long enough—they may be able to stop circling the runway and land on the villain’s doorstep. Lieutenant Laura Lopez, Detective Ray Boyle, Joey Clams, Vinnie Strings and Darlene Roman are all back in the first new Jake Diamond escapade since Counting to Infinity.

I just finished reading , "Circling the Runway" by J. L. Abramo A Jake Diamond Mystery and I found it to be an interesting story. Jacob Diamond is a Private Investigator who does not like working with Roxton Johnson who is a San Francisco Detective Sergeant. The problem is that when someone is found dead and they happen to be important Johnson has no choice but to call Jacob Diamond even though he doesn't really want to. After all he only trusts him. Maybe if they start to try to work on the crime together they will solve it. But, will they be able to help each other long enough? I liked the characters and the storyline. I will be reading the author's other books as soon as I can. I give this book a 4/5. I was given this book for the purpose of review and all opinions are my own.
