CASE PENDING By Dell Shannon/Elizabeth Linington


A police procedure that was written in 1960. The story is still good today. Be prepared to see The difference in The handling of the cases at that times. The characters are developed in depth and the reading flows smoothly. The first in a long series featuring Lt. Luis Mendoza and the Homicide department It follows the officers and their families along with the current crime. There are often several cases. One of two might be the completed in the next book. I have read this series several times and each time my attention is held.
In this one, a woman’s s battered body is found in the street. Lt. Mendoza believes that same criminal who killed another girl 6 months earlier is the guilty party. An off shoot of the police department is one about locating missing fathers to enforce payment for their children. One of the latter officers has a personal problem with his adoption of a daughter. Lt. Mendoza meets Alison Weir in the course of his investigation. We learned how Mendoza became wealthy. These various themes are skillfully brought together. I highly recommend this book and series.Dell Shannon
