Book Description

 Jenny Spencer is missing after a violent encounter on a beach. Her aunt, Susan Blake, ask wisecracking PI Jake Travis to intervene. Susan and Jake had only spent one dinner together and both felt an instant attraction. Jake walked away. He was, and is, committed to Kathleen.

As Jake and his partner, Garrett Demarcus, close the circle on finding Jenny, they discover that Kathleen's past ties to organized crime and Jenny's life are strangely entwined. They fight a two-front battle to find Jenny and protect Kathleen.

But by protecting Kathleen, will Jake become the type of man she could never love? Does he have choice?

Cooler Than Blood wraps Lane's trademark humor and literary theme overtones into a suspenseful and entertaining mystery.

My Review

 Cooler Than Blood by author Robert Lane is the second book in the Jake Travis mystery series. I have not read the first book, The Second Letter, and it was not necessary to my enjoyment. Cooler Than Blood can easily be read as a stand-alone novel.

Is Jenny Spencer a habitual runaway? She ran away from her home in Ohio to stay with her aunt in Florida. When she disappears in Florida everyone is wondering if she has simply run away again. Jenny's Aunt Susan hires PI Jake Travis. Jake is on the case, a case that has a connection to his girlfriend Kathleen. Can he keep his personal life out of this case?

I always enjoy a Florida setting. The novel Cooler Than Blood has plenty of twists. Interesting read. You'll enjoy it!
