Deadly Attraction
by Neil Low

Alan Stewart and Vera Deward Murder Mysteries Book 5

DEADLY ATTRACTION is the fifth novel in the Alan Stewart and Vera Deward Murder Mystery series, set in 1940's Seattle.

On his way to work, a young carpenter finds the partially nude body of a hopeful Hollywood starlet, Audrey Lockhart, near the Green Lake walking path. A recent graduate of Smith College, she stopped in Seattle on her way to L.A, for a reunion with her dying father and to visit her uncle, King County Commisioner Dan Lockhart, who had once been a police detective on Seattle's Dry Squad, under Mike Ketchum, now Seattle's Chief of Detectives. Because of the chief's history with his former employee, once trying to fire him for corruption, private investigators Alan Stewart and Vera Deward are asked to mitigate the conflict of interest and assist police with their investigation. Stewart and Deward bring their own set of skills, a combination of old-fashioned sleuthing, hard knocks, and bruised knuckles to help solve this henious crime, which might be linked to other rapes and murders in the region. Descending into the depths of depravity, they fight their way through gambling dens, the Chinese underground, and the Seattle Waterfront, uncovering the fact that sometimes blood is thicker than water.

"With DEADLY ATTRACTION, Neil Low offers up another fine mystery with master sleuths Vera Deward and Alan Stewart, scoping out corrupt World War II era Seattle. Each successive chapter draws a bead on the reader, fires, round after round of adrenalin-packed action and mystique, and delivers a final kill shot with unbearable, cliffhanging suspense. Low's mastery of prose and detective-like attention to detail makes this deadly yarn a unique addition to the hard-boiled genre. No other author could ever write this book quite like Low does." --Don Roff, Authof of Zombies: A Record of the Year of Infection.

"I truly enjoyed DEADLY ATTRACTION. This fast-paced Seattle mystery is rich in historical context and fillwed with suspense." --Kenyon S. Chan, Chancellor-University of Washington, Bothell.

"I just bought UNHOLY ALLIANCE. I like your writing style. Reminds me of Ed McBain!" --Bill B, AZ

“Although deeds are dastardly and bad guys evil, UNHOLY ALLIANCE's ending is quite satisfying!” Randy C, Seattle

“Enjoyed UNHOLY ALLIANCE's real characters, intriguing story, and fascinating Seattle history." Danny B, CA

"I thoroughly enjoyed UNHOLY ALLIANCE! Friend reading it now. Amazon certainly has good taste!" Amazon reader

"My husband took my copy of UNHOLY ALLIANCE and is now reading it a second time. He likes the interaction between the characters in your books. He's read them all. I'll get it next." Sue, OH
