Overview

Jake Wanderman is not your average retired teacher and Shakespeare maven. He has tangled with the Russian Mafia in Moscow and assassins in Jerusalem and always come out on top. Now his childhood friend's long-lost daughter is a suspect in a murder investigation and Jake's help is needed. The daughter flees to London and he follows, searching for clues. Instead, he uncovers rape, suicide, and secret identities. And falling in love with the female detective on the case only complicates the issue.

Like Sam Spade phoning in his reports to Effie, Jake Wanderman talks us through this corkscrew case in his own inimitable, Brooklyn-wise-guy style while quoting Shakespeare at every opportunity.

Editorial Reviews

http://www.blackopalbooks.com - Taylor Jones
Although I had a little trouble comprehending why a Shakespeare-spouting, retired teacher would make a good detective, once I got into the story, I quickly overcame that. Deadly Secrets has a strong plot and some very interesting characters.
http://www.blackopalbooks.com - Regan Murphy
Along with quite a few intriguing characters, Riskin has given us a strong storyline, some very tense edge-of-the-seat moments, and a lot of fast-paced action. It is not a book that you can read once and forget.

Meet the Author

Many fiction writers have long been urged to get out of their ivory towers and research the real world for their material. Robert Boris Riskin did better than that. He went out and actually worked for a living. A Brooklyn native, he traveled the world. He supported himself and family at a variety of jobs—from dishwasher to factory worker, busboy to a hawker of low-price, high-fashion garments for women—all the while experiencing firsthand the stuff of the human condition that feeds his writing.

Riskin’s work has appeared over the years in a variety of literary magazines, including The New Yorker. Long an avid reader of mystery-thrillers, he decided to try his hand at it. The crackling results were Scrambled Eggs and Deadly Bones which introduced a salty, new, reluctant sleuth and Shakespeare maven, called Jake Wanderman. Deadly Secrets is the third in the series.

Riskin now lives and writes in Sag Harbor, at the eastern end of New York’s Long Island, where, he says, the bay and ocean are close enough to touch, and the air is alive with stories.
