Rachel Goodman writes a succesful mystery series featuring detective Duffy Madison. There’s just one little problem….. it turns out Duffy is…real? After making an appearance in Cooperman’s last book, Rachel and Duffy are back. Duffy’s back in town researching some missing persons cases and he needs Rachel’s help. This is a really fun premise, one I loved back in the days of Remington Steele (anyone else old enough to remember that series?) and it also bring to mind some of Stephen King’s creepier novels where a character he’s created comes to life and refuses to be “written out”.
