A Note From Janet About The Things We Keep

Jeri is all over the map. Yes, if you’ve read the Jeri Howard series, you know that Jeri is based in Oakland, California. But this private investigator doesn’t just stay in the office. She goes places. All over the nine counties that encompass the greater Bay Area, of course.

And certainly farther afield. In Don’t Turn Your Back on the Ocean, a brief vacation in Monterey turns into a case and Jeri travels south to San Luis Obispo. A Credible Threat takes her to Colorado, then north to Mendocino. In Where the Bodies are Buried, Jeri follows a lead to Carlsbad, New Mexico. Bit Player leads her to Los Angeles, then over the Sierra Nevada to Lee Vining and Mono Lake. The Devil Close Behind finds her in New Orleans. In Witness to Evil, she goes all the way to Paris, then winds up in Bakersfield.

Most of the time, though, Jeri stays close to home. Oakland, Alameda, San Francisco, up to Marin and Sonoma counties.

Jeri’s latest case is The Things We Keep. The book begins in Alameda, the island city, where Jeri grew up. It’s full of old Victorian-era homes and Jeri is in one such house when she finds two skulls and a pile of bones in an old Navy footlocker. As the footlocker implies, the house is close to the Alameda Naval Air Station.
