BOOK ONE of the California Corwin P.I. Mystery Series

Contains the bonus story - Off The Leash a California Corwin Short Story

"This is a real page turner and hard to put down. The characters are like people you know. I could smell the Cheetos, the computer geek Mickey was eating, in the office...an excellent mystery and the beginning of what promises to be a very good series." - Gwen N.

"Loose Ends was a great read, if you're looking for a solid mystery this is a book worth your time. I was hooked by the story from the very beginning and I barely put it down until I finished it." - Melissa V.

"There are some great fully realised characters here, and never a dull moment. Full of action, plenty of twists and turns, as well as as real shocker of an ending, this makes a strong start for what promises to be a gripping new series." - N.A. Stephenson

When a young girl is kidnapped, street-smart but damaged San Francisco ex-cop California "Cal" Corwin is engaged to find and rescue her before murder raises the stakes. As a straightforward case takes unexpected twists, Cal must quell a growing fear that an anguished mother may never see her child again. With a shadowy crime lord lurking behind every unexpected clue, Cal struggles to tie up loose ends before evil claims its next victim.

Loose Ends is the first book in the Cal Corwin P. I. mystery series from D. D. VanDyke, though the books can be read in any order. Set against the rich backdrop of the San Francisco Bay Area, Cal Corwin novels brim with intrigue and fully fleshed characters from cops and criminals to hit men, oddball family and unexpected allies.

    Very good read. Did not make the PI a Cheezy type of character. Will definitely read more from this author.

    Had me interested right out of the gate, held my attention, but ended too quickly, without closure, hence the title, I suppose...I would read more from this author.
  • Loose Ends is still to loose

    By ejhreader
    This was a good and enjoyable story, oh well written but not completed. Please way too many unfinished storylines making it a load of crap. Disappointed in that I thought maybe I found a new series I would enjoy but no way Jose.

    Interesting plot line, good twists. Shallow character development and a few unbelievable plot twists but for a simple and entertaining read I enjoyed it.
