Bright Futures

Kaminsky, Stuart M.
Lew Fonesca is hired to prove that a teen didn't kill a guy everyone hated who was trying to shut down the local high school for gifted students. The Dairy Queen is closed; Lew moves AND buys a car for sixty-six bucks. Victor goes home, too. A small quibble with "twelve hundred years" and "twelve hundred centuries" on page seven, but I'll get over it.

Quote:

There were consequences, but there was the promise of windmills. (pg. 146)

Retribution

Kaminsky, Stuart M.
Lew Fonesca agrees to find the sister of a mentally-impaired neighbor. And Adele has run off, possibly with all the unpublished manuscripts of a famous reclusive author she met. Plus, people are getting killed. It's all rather depressing... I've decided that Kaminsky's books are peopled by charactors who have had some tragedy in their life, and are often searching for some kind of redemption.

Black Heat

Kelley, Norman
Nina Halligan is a former prosecuter, now a P.I., and a black woman, who has magic x-ray/infrared/telescopic sunglasses. An interesting switch from the mostly "white" stories I usually read. Lots of ethnic awareness, but only average story. I think the magic glasses was a jarring note. 304 p.
