Overview

Christopher Jenson just wants to write the great American novel, but he suffers from an infernal case of writer’s block. To make ends meet, he offers loss prevention services as Christina Jenner or Christopher Jenson, depending upon the needs of his clients. As Christina, he assists cheapskate Franklin Benton to unravel a host of mysterious activities in his family business. Desperate for income, he agrees as Christopher to prove Miriam Smithers’ suspicions that her husband, Bob, was murdered. Her shady behavior makes her the prime suspect, particularly when she discloses that she will receive a massive insurance payout if Bob was murdered. Will Christopher/Christina be Miriam’s next victim if she is the killer? His investigations overlap as he scrambles to keep Christina’s identity separate from Christopher’s persona. He might need both identities to save him from a relentless killer.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Christopher Jenson has writer's block and needs money to live in San Diego. He takes security cases as Christopher Jenson and Christina Jenner. Keeping his gender straight is a challenge. VERDICT A cross-dressing detective is a rarity in mystery, but Jones (Mayan Key; Mayan Equinox) pulls it off. For readers who like the offbeat.

    The Suspicious Spouse

    I recently won a copy of The Suspicious Spouse by Keith Jones in a giveaway on GoodReads. I originally entered the giveaway because I was intrigued with the description of the book as I haven't read anything that had the main character portraying both male and female characters. Hesitantly peeking inside the covers, I soon found myself being pulled into the novel as mysteries began to unfold and I began to have my own questions and suspicions, just as Christina/Christopher did. Though a few parts seemed to be heavy with needless detail, all in all I feel as though Keith Jones did a wonderful job with this book and I look forward to reading more of his work. I'd also like to add that I really enjoyed the cover art as the single image of both Christina/Christopher adds a bit of intrigue.
