Neil Low, Deadly Attraction
SPD Captain Neil Low's Deadly Attraction
More 1940s Seattle noir based on actual crimes: A young starlet (niece of a former cop/now a county commissioner) is found murdered near Green Lake, the scene staged to appear as a sex crime. Her uncle asks PI's Stewart and Deward to probe the case, not trusting the ‘objectivity’ of his former colleagues. Politics muddies the water. Two real, historic murders are used in this book: One is the 1926 murder of Sylvia Gaines, which Capt. Low moves to 1940 for his fictional purposes. The other is the 1938 Crescent Lake “Lady of the Lake” murder.
