Who is Holmes without his Watson, Scully without her Mulder? Half the fun of a witty, fast-paced mystery is watching two wildly different kinds of detectives duke it out verbally while puzzling out a nearly impossible solution. Especially if they happen to be attracted to each other. In these five, some are, some aren’t, but in each case, these dynamic duos complete, complement and—often—thoroughly infuriate each other. (In the friendliest possible way, of course.) Double detectives, double fun at less than half the normal price!
Politicians, Potholes and Pralines
No good deed goes unpunished, as they say. In Brandy Alexander’s case, no good deed goes without finding a body and a crime to solve. After work she joins her friend, Whit, to celebrate his Judge of the Year nomination. When she goes to return the jacket he left in the bar, she finds herself smack in the middle of a crime scene. The doors to his home and security gates are wide open, his dog is nowhere to be found, the safe is empty, an ex-wife is standing at the top of the stairs, and the Judge is facedown in a pool of blood.
