Veteran NYPD Detective Tommy Keane has spent nineteen years chasing criminals in the Bronx – investigating unimaginable crimes and solving near-impossible cases. When a punitive measure forces Keane to transfer to the relatively quiet 21st Precinct in Manhattan, he expects his last thirteen months before retirement to be painfully easy. But as the grisly murder of a celebrated nun soon proves, even the safest neighborhoods can have their secrets, and even the most seasoned detective can be surprised by the disturbing and unspeakably cruel acts humans can commit, and endure.


Review:

Suspenseful, tense, and action-packed!

Sister Margaret is a pacey, atmospheric tale that introduces us to the NYPD Detective Tommy Keane who with retirement on the near horizon gets transferred to the quieter 2-1 Upper East Side Precinct only to have one of the most gruesome murders ever to fall into his lap.

The writing is tight and fluid. The characters are hardworking, intelligent, and tenacious. And the plot using short, intense chapters is a captivating police procedural full of red herrings, deception, abuse, secrets, violence, police politics, and murder.

Overall, Sister Margaret is a short, quick, gritty read that’s a wonderful start to this new series by the Myers siblings with its intriguing characters, nice sense of urgency, and satisfying conclusion.

About Travis Myers and Natasha Myers Marsiguerra

Travis Myers and Natasha Myers Marsiguerra are a brother and sister team who both grew up in New York City.

Travis is a retired New York City Police Detective, and Natasha works for the IBEW (International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers) Local 234 in California.

Together they form a perfect team in that Travis, who has more stories to tell than a pub full of Irishman, suffers from dyslexia and abhors anything to do with reading and writing. Natasha, his beloved little sister, is an avid reader of absolutely anything that is put in front of her and has been blessed with the gift of gab. She can out-story just about anyone, in any room, at any given time, and she can also type 60 words per minute. More importantly, Natasha is able to understand where her older brother is coming from, and craft his stories into a readable format.

Together, they weave the Tommy Keane Detective series into well braided fictional tales that are nearly all based in actual events that they, and their friends and relatives, have lived. Travis and Natasha deliver on their promise to deliver gritty, honest stories that are rooted in the everyday lives of everyday people.
