Praise for Jump "Fast-paced and funny, this is a perfectly blended cocktail of escapism." -Publishers Weekly When the most hated landlord in San Francisco takes a jump off the roof of his own building, it isn't hard to find suspects. The police want to call it a suicide, since both the Mayor and press are complaining about the dismal closure rate for homicide investigations. But ex-cop Sam McGowan knows it was murder. He also knows that anyone living on the top floor of the building should be a suspect, including himself. So Sam decides to get to know his neighbors: a lonely jazz singer more than willing to confess to any crime; two young women paying for graduate school by operating a website that reveals a lot more than their SAT scores; a B-movie producer with a swollen prostate and shrinking bank balance; and the brothers at the end of the hall who just quit their day jobs to sell marijuana for the Mexican mob. The only thing they have in common is an agreement that their dead landlord got what he deserved-and that one of them is probably responsible. As more bodies surface and alliances shift, Sam finds himself jumping between his old life as a cop and his new one as a murder suspect...Tim Maleeny is the Macavity Award-winning author of Stealing the Dragon, Beating the Babushka, and Greasing the Pinata. Jump is his standalone thriller. Maleeny lives and writes in northern California. www.timmaleeny.com
