A hit-and-run driver leaves Tuper’s best friend, Squirrely, for dead and Tuper holding a duffle bag full of thousands of dollars, a pistol, and a twenty-five-year-old newspaper. As Squirrely lies in a coma, on a fine line between life and death, Tuper and Lana dig into the past to discover the who, what, and why of the attempted murder. Confronted with a convoluted past, rife with lies, fraud, and blackmail, the pair makes little headway until the killer makes a mistake.
In Finding Frankie, the second novel in The Tuper Mystery Series, author Teresa Burrell exhibits exceptional skill in combining character and plot-driven stories. The characters, Tuper and Lana, are quintessential in their own right. Tuper, the old man who knows a guy, reminded me of my country born and bred grandfather, while Lana, a young and brilliant computer techie wise beyond her years, is the embodiment of today’s millennial generation. The plot becomes ever thicker as twists and turns, lies and loss of memories combine to create a roller coaster story of mystery and suspense; a whodunit par excellence. An author can’t write a story like this without a real understanding of human nature and in-depth knowledge of today’s cyber world. Burrell has a wealth of knowledge in the emotive and rational capacities of humankind and/or the patience and ambition for deep research; I’m betting on a combination of the two. Finding Frankie is a “super-Tuper” detective/mystery story guaranteed to please every fan of these genres. I loved it and look forward to more.
