Acclaimed Author Gayle Carline Announces
New Peri Minneopa Mystery, A MORE DEADLY UNION
Placentia, CA – Acclaimed Southern California author Gayle Carline announces the release of her fourth Peri Minneopa mystery novel, A More Deadly Union (ISBN 978−1−943654−06−2). A More Deadly Union follows the first three books in the critically acclaimed Peri Minneopa series: Freezer Burn, Hit or Missus, and The Hot Mess, along with the short story, Clean Sweep.
In A More Deadly Union, 50-year-old private investigator, Peri Minneopa knows two things: she doesn’t want to get married, and she’s happy to stick her nose into police business when she’s solving a case.
When someone begins threatening one of Peri’s clients, the most likely suspect turns out to be her client’s former lover, whose past relationship could ruin the suspect’s chances at being elected mayor. And when her boyfriend, Detective Skip Carlton, ends up in a coma after being shot, Peri discovers that her client’s case is interfering with the police’s ability to find his shooter. Peri’s been dating Skip for ten years, but without a marriage license, she can’t even visit him in the hospital. And Skip’s oldest daughter is doing her best to keep Peri away.
Peri knows better than to interfere with the police’s efforts to find Skip’s shooter, but her case keeps showing up in the middle of their investigation, and she needs to solve it fast to help her client and Skip. Now all she knows is that she’ll do anything if Skip will wake up – even marry him.
“In A More Deadly Union, many of my readers’ favorite characters reappear, including Peri’s Dean Martin-loving OCD assistant, Benny, her best friend, Blanche Debussy, boyfriend Skip Carlton, and Placentia police Chief Fletcher,” said Carline. “In this story, Peri gets herself into more trouble with police while she tries to solve a case that will help her construction friend, Jared, and Skip, and has to contend with Skip’s family and the hospital staff where he’s recovering from a gunshot wound. It’s one of Peri’s most difficult cases, but also one where she comes to terms with her future and finally makes an important decision about her relationship with Skip.”

“Gayle Carline’s private investigator mystery, A More Deadly Union: Peri Minneopa Mysteries, Book 4, is suspenseful and fast-paced. While this is Book 4 in the Peri Minneopa Series, Carline weaves just enough background material into her plot to allow readers to enjoy this book as a stand-alone novel. She quickly brings those new readers up to date with Peri’s career, her issues with Skip, who had proposed to her in the past, her friend/assistant, Benny, and her not-always-smooth relationship with Skip’s fellow police officers. Carline’s plot is first-rate, and the solution to the mystery is in no way a predictable one. Peri is a marvelous character, but the real star of this book for me was Benny, who has OCD and Asperger’s, and who rises to the situation with courage, determination, and classic style. A More Deadly Union: Peri Minneopa Mysteries, Book 4 is highly recommended.” - Jack Magnus, Readers’ Favorite Book Reviews
