“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.
