ISBN: 1591092167

Hawkman, Tom Casey, now owns a Private Investigation business. He is married to Jennifer and has adopted a son Sam. Hawkman's PI Agency is off to a fine beginning, cases are beginning to come in, things are going good.

Nancy Gilbert is terrified that she is going to be the next victim of the person who killed her sister. She is certain her former husband Drew Harland is Tonia's murderer, of course she comes to Hawkman for help in finding the killer. Convicted of bank robbery almost a decade ago, Harland has just gotten out of jail on 'good behavior' and is now out looking for Nancy.

It is not long before Hawkman begins to uncover a whole lot more to the story than Nancy realized. Following Drew's death, Nancy's attorney husband Jack convinces her that Hawkman is no longer needed; despite Nancy's dismissal Hawkman continues his investigation and begins to uncover some very interesting facts concerning both Tonia and Nancy's husband Jack.

Writer LaPierre has produced an appealing treatise filled with good writing, entertaining characters and creditable situation. She skillfully hooks the reader with her opening line and holds interest right on through to the end of the narrative. Evocative of the drama found in Christine Spindler's Faces of Fear along with the rich characterizations present in Paula Boyd's Hot Enough To Kill, LaPierre's Double Trouble is a gripping read. Betty throws a red herring or two into the mix just to keep the reader on their toes.
