The morning starts routinely for Colton Banyon. The insanely jealous Loni wants to scope out the women that Banyon works with at Dewey & Beatem in Chicago. And the entire Patel clan has gone to India to visit with relatives, but, at Banyon’s request, Patel sister Previne has stayed behind to inspect an archaeological dig site in Las Vegas. Then the unthinkable happens. There is an explosion at the dig site and Previne is left clinging to life. Her doctors say they will turn off her life support in three days.
Banyon soon discovers that the explosion was no accident: it was part of a plot to drum up business. What’s more, the bomb was purposely planted to sensationalize the atrocities committed by the Japanese during World War II at a secret facility called Unit 731.
When Banyon attempts to notify the Patel clan of Previne’s peril, he finds that they are on a remote mountainside in the Himalayas and in serious jeopardy themselves, defending their long lost Aunt from a murderous lawyer. They may not get back to Las Vegas in time to say goodbye to their sister. In fact, they may not even survive. He resolves to save Previne and put a stop to the monstrous plot at the same time.
With help from Loni and the staff of Dewey & Beatem, Colton Banyon begins to unravel the plot. In order to save Previne, he must steal from from Area 51, bring down a major mobster in Mumbai, tangle with the San Francisco Tong, find documents pertaining to Unit 731 at a Japanese grave site, and prevent any more bomb threats.
And he only has three days to do it all, or Previne will die.
“A Dubious Crime” is the ninth book in the Colton Banyon Mystery series.
