A KNIGHT AT THE OPERA (Larsen #4)
As the unplanned finale of the Denver Opera Company's production of Carmen, an audience member plunges to his death from the top balcony, nearly landing on lawyer Adam Larsen and his paralegal, former Denver Bronco Maurice White. What appears to be a mere accident becomes far more complicated when the mystery woman who was seated next to the deceased vanishes--and the victim's wife hires Larsen to represent her in dealing with her husband's ex-wife and his accounting partners. Questions begin to arise. Why was this happily married man soliciting the services of an escort service? And what is so important about his secret post office box that someone assaults Larsen's significant-whatever-she-is, private investigator Jana Duncan, outside the Cherry Creek Mall? Only Adam Larsen's nimble brain and quick sense of humor can sort it all out-­but can he accomplish it in time to save Jana's life? "A Knight at the Opera is well crafted by a very talented author and you will want to read other books by Mr. Kenneth L. Levinson. You will enjoy each one as much as the first." Anne K. Edwards

An Unconventional Murder by Kenneth L. Levinson
AN UNCONVENTIONAL MURDER (CFWA #1)
Everyone is intrigued by the murder mystery the Executive Board of the Colorado Fiction Writers Association has created for its 2008 writer's convention. The problem is, the board has done no such thing. The body in the back of the auditorium at the Marquis Hotel is a real corpse, dressed in articles of clothing someone has deliberately stolen from each of the Board members. Arthur Upton, CFWA President and a former New York cop, senses that the stolen clothes make this murder something personal. Lakewood Police Detective, Mitch Cameron, has a problem of his own. Two items from his Weapons of Destruction display have vanished. He soon finds one of them, a garrotte, wrapped tightly around the dead man's throat. Cameron knows that the other weapon, a nine inch stiletto, is still somewhere in the hotel, where a record-setting blizzard has stranded him without backup. As night closes in, the snow continues to fall relentlessly--and Cameron and the board know they must confront a cold-blooded killer. "An Unconventional Murder is an intriguing and enjoyable mystery nicely peppered with false clues, blind alleys and a large cast of familiar-seeming characters, almost all of whom had the means, motive and opportunity to commit the crimes." P.G.Forte, Myshelf.Com.
