|The idea behind the series is a cross between things like Mission Impossible (the TV series, not the movies), Leverage (but less zany), and It Takes a Thief (the 60s series with Robert Wagner). The heroes use more mind than muscle, and tend to psyche their antagonists into submission.|
||This is the first book in the Odd Jobs Mysteries series. The stories take place in Colorado (so far), and involve a cast of characters. In other novels, each character will stand in the spotlight just as Cameron Jaclyn does in this one.
Cameron is a regular guy. No special skills at sleuthing, but a strong sense of obligation to friends. When one of his friends calls him and asks Cameron to look into his daughter’s death, Cameron just can’t say no.
