Overview

DOUBLE TROUBLE is an entertaining page-turner. The disappearance of a controversial history professor from his sailboat on the Connecticut shore initiates a web of intrigue that brings an attractive cast of characters to New York City and Washington, D.C. They include savvy and hapless academics, a popular administrator who is not what he claims to be, a smart and sexy law student, a school teacher with a shadowy past, and two precocious kids. What begins as a halfhearted exploration of a local mystery by amateur sleuths leads to the discovery of the Knights of Malta's involvement in terrorism and the shenanigans of the State Department in Latin America during the Reagan administration. For a story that ultimately involves nine homicides, Double Trouble is upbeat, romantic, and cheerful. Readers who like happy endings will not be disappointed.

Meet the Author

Jim Lacey grew up in Brooklyn, New York, in the Golden Age before the Dodgers left for Tinseltown. He was the victim of a classical education under the auspices of the Jesuits at Brooklyn Prep and St. Peter's College, where he majored in Philosophy, English, and (well, almost) mathematics.

After a year at the University of Bern, Switzerland, Jim became the first teaching assistant in the English department at Boston College. With an M.A. almost in hand, he did a stint as an artillery officer at Fort Benning, GA, returned to New York to marry the love of his life, got a job teaching English in Brooklyn, and began to take courses at NYU. After research in Germany and (finally!) finishing his Ph.D. , Jim found a home at Eastern Connecticut State College. At Eastern he created an American studies program, chaired the English department, and directed the honors program for ten years. A sometime science fiction nut, Jim is guilty of having published a novelette, "Witch Children," in GALAXY, one of those garishly illustrated pulp magazines that flourished in the heyday of hard-core science fiction. After retiring from Eastern, he wrote DOUBLE TROUBLE just for fun.

Jim and Barbara Lacey celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary in August, 2008. They have two children, Christopher and Beth, both with doctorates in science, and six grandchildren.
