Six of Marco Fontana's early cases show some of the forces that helped shape the young P.I. In high school, Fontana discovers that he has a knack for crime solving. Not only that, he likes it. When his English teacher is accused of murdering the school disciplinarian, Marco takes it upon himself to investigate. Some years later, after Marco has explored his options, we find him in his first office on Latimer and Twelfth. Trouble easily manages to find him there. From dealing with a stolen DaVinci sketch, to uncovering a blackmailing murderer, to having a pleasant trip to celebrate Pride in NY turned into a nightmare, to presiding over a murderous leather competition, Marco develops his investigative skills and his techniques for solving difficult cases. Crimes on Latimer presents only six of Fontana's early cases. There are other mysteries in his past which will be explored in cases to come. This half-dozen crime tales open a window onto Marco Fontana's world before he found himself dealing with the events of Murder on Camac. "The mysteries are well laid out with suspense and mo-tivation for the perpetrators' actions, showing what makes them tick. Engaging characters also cause readers to feel empathy for those who are hurt and falsely accused. Well-researched and accurate details of Philadelphia and New York clearly portray the cities' geography and culture, and the events that occur. All these qualities make this book more than a simple mystery collection. This book is welcome to any mystery collection for adults or mature young adults." - The GLBT Round Table of the American Library Association… (more)
