The Last Prayer

In June of 1960 an elderly retired Roman Catholic priest is murdered in Beaufort, South Carolina and ten days later a retired detective is murdered in the same manner in Youngstown, Ohio.

Tommy Savala, once again, tells us another of his uncle’s adventures, as Detective Frank Triano tries to solve the murders of the two men.

Another wonderful novel. The interplay between two related plots contributes to a good pace and builds on anticipation in both stories. The author tells us the stories end but are not complete, leaving endless future possibilities

Skating in the Moon Shadows

The bodies of three young African American women are discovered in 1959 Youngstown, Ohio over a period of a few weeks. Our narrator, Tommy Savala, tells the story of his uncle’s first major case. Frank Triano is a Mexican American Korean War hero, who uses his notoriety, family connections, and skills to become the youngest detective in the police department’s history.

This is a great read for anyone who likes a mystery. The characters are all so well covered that you think you must know them all personally by the end of the novel. Really enjoyed it!
