Overview

Five years ago, Gilbert "GG" Garcia - bassist for beloved New Brunswick, NJ indie band Magna Carta - went off the grid. At the request of GG's sister, P.i. Jackson Donne made some inquiries but hit a wall. Aside from allegations of mob involvement and illegal betting, the leads had dried up and GG was in the wind. Soon enough, the case went cold and Donne moved on. Five years later, Miami P.I. Pete Fernandez gets a frantic call from an old friend - a police detective stationed in his old stomping grounds of New Jersey - asking for a favor he can't discuss over the phone. Bruised and battered from a near-fatal run-in with a lethal serial killer, Pete welcomes the brief change of scenery. Or escape. Pete discovers the GG case has frozen solid, with only one flicker of hope for solving it: talking to the first detective who tried to find the local-boy-gone-missing. But there's one problem: Jackson Donne is in prison for murder. Pulled into an uneasy alliance with the older, jaded detective, Pete must pick up the pieces of Donne's work to learn the missing bassist's final fate, while also avoiding an unexpected mob turf war and locals who prefer the past stay buried. SHALLOW GRAVE pairs two of the best crime writers working today, Dave White and Alex Segura, pairing up their acclaimed characters in an unforgettable tale of lost hopes, dangerous alliances and sinister betrayals.

Two authors have combined their respective characters from previous books into one short story. Pete Fernandez is a Private Investigator from Miami. Summoned by an old friend in law enforcement, he is asked to tryto locate Gilbert Garcia, a man who went missing 5 years previously. Feared dead, Garcia's sister wants him back dead or alive and she's not willing to stop looking. Pete investigates without any luck and decides he needs to start from the very beginning. The only problem is that the original PI, Jackson Donne, is in prison on a murder charge. Lots of action is packed into this very short story -- 85 pages. The reader gets treated to what happens to ex-cops in prison, a man who feels it is safer in prison ... no one else gets hurt. He's older, he's tired, and he sees Pete as a younger version of himself. Even though Pete is still recovering from a previous case dealing with a serial killer, he's gungho to find his man... even though it leads him to people in the mafia ...and people who want the past to stay buried. found while browsing Amazon. I may try a full length book by each of the authors to get a better handle on the characters and where they came from to get where they are.
