|READ E-PUB ☨ Susannah Screaming (Krug and Kellog, #2) ♿ eBooks or Kindle ePUB free

Casey Kellog and Al Krug are two homicide detectives working for the Santa Monica Police Department Kellog is young and has a college education Krug is older, cranky, and curmudgeonly and very resistant to new ideas Their partnership has its ups and downs Their latest case involves a hit and run death and centers around two witnesses to the crime, whose testimony does not agree Paul Rees, new to town, was doing his laundry in an all night laundromat Susannah Roche is an actress and a free spirit.This book was originally published in 1975 and was the second in a three book series about Kellog and Krug The first book, Poor, Poor Ophelia, was published in 1972 and a new TV series, The Streets of San Francisco, was based on that book The pilot for the series came out in 1972 also.I always enjoy a police procedural, but this story also includes a closer look at the witnesses and how the crime affects their lives That same scenario is also often used in The Streets of San Francisco episodes We have watched episodes from the first two seasons of that show over the last two years, so I have seen a lot of them.The depiction of Santa Monica in the 70 s felt realistic Some reviewers noted that the story was dated It does reflect the time it was written in, and I find that charming, not irritating Of course I was around in the 70 s, and maybe that is the difference I often read books from previous decades to learn or remember what those times were like Or to hear about them from a different perspective or point of view. Slow start but keeps you reading Love the location as I worked in Santa Month ca for 17 yearsI did have a bit of a challenge getting into the story but then enjoyed the characters and the twists and turns i had heard so much about this book and was excited to start reading it but that was where the excitement ended I couldn t grasp the language used in this book as it think it was to dated for me.Thanks to Netgalley for approving me for this title Good police proceduralWritten in the 70 s this novel with old jadedcop and eager young cop Most interesting is the Rees, an ex con who had killed his wife s killer in a fight and is unwittingly becomes a suspect in a series of crimes. Synopsis blurb.THE SECOND BLOCKBUSTER THRILLER IN THE KRUG KELLOG SERIES WHICH BECAME THE HIT TV SHOW THE STREETS OF SAN FRANCISCO It s the turbulent 1970s, a time of social upheaval University educated ex surfer Casey Kellog is the youngest homicide detective on the force He s teamed up with Al Krug, an older, tougher, street wise cop resistant to change Their latest case involves a vicious hit and run death a driver in a Mercedes chases a motorcyclist, hits him, and then backs up over him again, making certain that he s road kill The investigation takes a bizarre turn when the victim is undressed in the morgue and the two cops discover that his corpse is plastic wrapped in twenty dollar bills My takeThere s a lot to like in this re published 1975 book from Carolyn Weston.length, pace, plot, characters and setting.We have a cop team Krug older, suspicious, cynical, jaded.and Kellog younger, fresh, idealistic, open but not naive As Weston s books spawned the TV series The Streets of San Francisco it was easy for me to picture a fresh faced Michael Douglas and a grizzled, schnozzle faced Karl Malden, whilst reading The TV series ran from 1972 until 1977, petering out after Douglas left the show in 1976.We have a vehicular homicide and a witness Our witness is a new kid in town Paul Rees Suspicion quickly falls on him as he is a parolee with a few secrets he would rather not disclose to the cops His initial half truths, evasiveness and outright lies, soon have him as public enemy number 1 in Detective Krug s eyes Our dead male has a large amount of counterfeit cash cling filmed to his torso Krug is adamant that Rees is part of a gang of forgers that the FBI have been chasing for a while and not as he claims an innocent witness.Rees meets the other witness to the homicide, an attractive woman Susannah Roche for a coffee and a subsequent date involving a meal before she spends a few hours in his motel room Susannah shortly after returning to her apartment plunges from her 10th floor window to her death.Roche s death so soon after sex with Rees reinforces Krug s conviction that Rees is involved Kellog is less convinced Our second half of the book sees Rees becoming increasingly panicked as the police seem to be focusing on him He starts trying to unpick the net that seems to be closing in on him With the gang leader eliminating partners for a larger cut of the pie, Rees with his parolee status is the ideal fall guy.Great action, great characters, great dialogue, an interesting puzzle, a fast pace and not over long Pretty much a perfect read at 220 odd pages.5 from 5Carolyn Weston s 1972 book Poor, Poor Ophelia was the first Casey Kellog book and inspired the pilot which eventually morphed into The Streets of San Francisco There was a third book in the series Rouse the Demon 1976 Brash Books have re published the first two and Demon will appear shortly My thanks to them for putting this one up on Net Galley.Brash Books

this police story line blasting in from the past. |READ E-PUB ♘ Susannah Screaming (Krug and Kellog, #2) ☪ THE SECOND BLOCKBUSTER THRILLER IN THE KRUG KELLOG SERIES WHICH BECAME THE HIT TV SHOW THE STREETS OF SAN FRANCISCO It S The Turbulent S, A Time Of Social Upheaval University Educated Ex Surfer Casey Kellog Is The Youngest Homicide Detective On The Force He S Teamed Up With Al Krug, An Older, Tougher, Street Wise Cop Resistant To Change Their Latest Case Involves A Vicious Hit And Run Death A Driver In A Mercedes Chases A Motorcyclist, Hits Him, And Then Backs Up Over Him Again, Making Certain That He S Road Kill The Investigation Takes A Bizarre Turn When The Victim Is Undressed In The Morgue And The Two Cops Discover That His Corpse Is Plastic Wrapped In Twenty Dollar Bills Susannah Screaming is set in Santa Monica in the 60 s It s a police procedural and a fast paced thriller to boot It begins with a hapless lonely guy at the all night laundromat who happens to witness a murder, which looks for all the world to the cops who are investigating like a hit and run The thing is, Paul Rees had seen the Mercedes run over the motorcyclist, back up, and run over him again But the police are skeptical, particularly when another witness describes a different kind of car The woman seems like a local, whereas Paul sounds kind of sketchy, like he has something to hide.But when the medical examiner gets a chance to see the body, he is somewhat taken aback that what should be a naked corpse is covered in cellophane wrap, encasing the body in many, many 20.00 bills Maybe Mr Rees story sounds a little plausible now.Al Krug, the older cop, can t get passed his deep doubt about Mr Rees and continues to think of him as of a suspect than a witness It doesn t take long to learn that he is a recently released convict, who was in prison for attacking the man who had run over his wife a couple of years ago The female witness is Susannah Roche, who says she is an actress, but the older cop has her pegged as a prostitute who was likely on her way home from a date when she witnessed the accident.As morning comes, the police partners, Krug and the younger cop Casey Kellog have finished interviewing the witnesses and release them, but the very tired officers find that their superior officer is extending their shifts All that money might be counterfeit and has attracted the attention of the Fraud Unit, and perhaps the Feds There is a lot of investigating yet to do.In the meantime, Paul and Susannah have spent enough time together at the police station that he gathers up his courage and asks her to breakfast He begins to dream that there might be a chance for the elusive Joy to return to his life, and he and Susannah plan to meet later for dinner But the involved the case gets, the the hapless Mr Rees seems to look to the police as if he might be in on the counterfeiting Why else would he be so nervous Lots of twists and turns and funky characters, not to mention the tension between the older experienced cop and his younger partner, who is into thinking and analyzingpractices which don t hold a candle to experience, as Krug likes to point out Really entertaining, fast paced reading I highly recommend it and intend to watch for work from Carolyn Weston The book is published by Brash Books, which provided the e book I read on my Kindle App. It s 4 AM in a deserted laundromat and Paul Rees is the witness to a murder a black Mercedes that runs down a motorcyclist, the driver making sure that the biker is well and truly hit before peeling off into the night Detectives Krug and Kellogg are assigned the case, running afoul of two complications First is another witness, Susannah Roche, who makes contradictory claims of the murder car in question Second is Rees own dark past a tragic death, a murder, and a criminal record that makes Rees too leery to tell cops the truth, and makes him a prime suspect He hits it off well with the mod chic actress Susannah, and starts to spend his nights out partying, falling for a girl whose secrets make him a bit uneasy More mysterious for Krug and Kellogg, the dead biker s autopsy finds him loaded to the gills he s saran wrapped with thousands of counterfeit tens and twenties, his million dollar shroud Aside from the sharp plot, the unique thing about the Krug and Kellogg novels of which this is the second, after 1972 s Poor Poor Ophelia is that Weston spends as much time following the suspect as the starring detectives It s as much a police procedural as a psychological drama playing within Rees head as he attempts to clear his name, not looking forward to another stay in the pen This also means that Rees gets better characterization than Krug or Kellogg Kellogg has enough character to become the sympathetic good cop, but Krug remains something of a grumpy cliche, and could really use some development to show how he became such a curmudgeon It helps a bit to have read the first novel, but it s not a requirement, and Susannah Screaming could work as a standalone read Weston s writing style is smooth, with some stylish Southern California atmosphere despite the twisty turny plot with several surprises, the novel is easy to follow and even easier to be drawn into Susannah Screaming is a decent 70s police procedural with a few great twists some of its elements are typical of the genre, while others stand out the setup is slick, the plotting is intricate, and the divided focus between the witness suspect and the detectives offers a unique balance between characters Overall it holds up rather well, and is an entertaining entry by an almost forgotten author It puts another solid entry in Brash s lineup, one that will appeal to crime readers who don t mind a flashback to the groovy mid 70s 3.5 stars, rounded up to four Full review, and other mystery crime book reviews, on my blog. received this book via NetGalley to give an honest review.I do enjoy murder mysteries trying to figure out who done the crime is always fun to read This story started off kind of slow even with the hit and run happening pretty quickly I think the only character I kind of liked was Rees He is an ex con and he gets pulled into a web of deceit pretty quickly Himself along with another person are the witness to the hit and run Rees seems to be telling the truth on what he saw, but the other witness seems to be holding something back She comes across as a shady character and it is not because she is a so called actress Two cops are investigating the hit and run death but one cop Krug who has been on the force for a long time believes Rees is not telling the whole truth, he is guilty of something Krug s partner Casey is pretty fresh behind the ears but doesn t believe Rees is really involved with anything to do with the murder or the counterfeit money that has come into play It is really a race against time to figure out what is going on who is murdering people and what exactly is Rees s role in it all Is he just an ex con that picked the wrong time and place to be, or is he in the loop with other criminals There is some action through out the story nothing to much I think the best action was with the chasing of the U haul truck with Casey in pursuit I dislike books that use the r word it is something that should not be said and that even goes when describing a child, this helped drop my rating down even though it was only used once I think the author could have picked a better way to describe said child With this book being set in the 70 s some way the words were told and used I had to get use to like teenybopper, and groovy you don t hear these words now a days so when they are in a book you have to remember the time period.
