“One reason I like Janet Dawson’s gal gumshoe, Jeri Howard, so much is that she likes her life…Jeri is not your standard malcontent, bourbon-guzzling private eye…As with the other novels in the Jeri Howard series, Where The Bodies Are Buried salts its suspense with tart social commentary.” Maureen Corrigan, Washington Post –

“Nobody plots an investigation more meticulously than Dawson, and she does a fine job of working in all the East Bay locales. Each conversation, each potential suspect, gives Jeri a tiny detail to follow up on, building one fact atop another.” Roberta Alexander, Contra Costa Times –

Oakland private eye Jeri Howard’s client, a paralegal named Rob Lawter, is murdered before he can tell her why he needs a private investigator. Jeri thinks the answer is at the company where Rob worked. So she goes undercover in the corporate legal department, determined to find out where the bodies are buried.

Meet the Author

In elementary school, Janet Dawson wrote mysteries in longhand on lined binder paper, influenced by those blue-backed Nancy Drew books she devoured. Now Janet writes about private investigator Jeri Howard. Her first book, Kindred Crimes, won the St. Martin's Press/Private Eye Writers of America contest for Best Private Eye Novel, and was nominated for Shamus, Anthony and Macavity awards. Other books include Till The Old Men Die, Take A Number, Don't Turn Your Back On The Ocean, Nobody's Child, A Credible Threat, Where The Bodies Are Buried, A Killing At The Track, and Bit Player. Her latest book is a suspense novel, What You Wish For. Janet was born in Oklahoma and grew up in Colorado. With a journalism degree from the University of Colorado, she worked as a newspaper reporter, then joined the Navy. An enlisted journalist, she wrote news and features in public affairs offices in Guam and Pensacola, FL. As an officer, her duties took her to the San Francisco Bay Area, where she lives in Alameda. Janet has a master's degree in history from California State University East Bay and can't think of anything she wants to study enough to go back to grad school. She currently works at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory.
