When Pulitzer Prize winning journalist Shawn Shaw visits his favorite haunt, looking for sustenance and creative inspiration, the owner shoves the day’s headline at him. “French Professors Raise Gifted Children in Dungeon.” Enough to elicit conversation between the two friends, but not enough to animate Shaw’s latest investigation of insider gambling in professional baseball. Enter James Berk, a well-dressed stranger to Parnell’s, but obviously interested in conversing with Shaw. As a Trustee of The Destiny Foundation, Berk has tracked down Shaw to represent and help the foundation in finding the one great mind that offers the key to medical magic. The three-hundred-year-old Foundation facilitates the work of the world’s greatest scientific minds and, with the help of Shaw’s award winning investigative skills, they are willing to compensate the journalist with a hefty monetary prize. With the assistance of Parnell’s owner and his illegal alien wife, Shaw and his idiot savant ward, Emma, a.k.a. Miss Tinsley, are thrown into a story to beat all stories. But how he was chosen for the role does not become clear until all the smoke clears.
Packed full of witty dialogue and fast paced across-the-country action, The Girl in the Freezer by Douglas Keil is clearly overlooked if not on the best seller list NOW. With a story sure to attract the attention of mystery, sleuth, and crime readers, do not allow the genre to sway your decision in picking up this fun read. Fall in love with Emma, root for the underdog, and be surprised at the inner workings of the genius population existent in our world. Flawless! An excellent read!
