A Part of the Pattern by L.L. Bartlett is the 7th book in the “Jeff Resnick’s Personal Files” mini-mystery series. Publisher: Polaris Press, coming September 18, 2017
Ex-insurance investigator Jeff Resnick finds himself drawn to solving crimes. His brother, Richard, thinks that could be the basis of a paying business. Reluctantly, Jeff agrees, and their first case is about a child who vanished more than two decades before. Meanwhile, Jeff bumps into an acquaintance whose history is very similar to that of the missing girl. Is it coincidence or is there a pattern that links him to her and his future?
In their latest adventure, Richard and Jeff have their first and only case and it is by happenstance that an acquaintance Jeff met years ago, plays heavily in this fast-paced short story. Fitting the pieces of the past and the present gives Jeff the ammunition he needs to solve this puzzle with an unexpected bonus in both his personal and professional life. I love this series and the author always grabs my attention with the narrative that keeps me engaged in this intriguing tale of confirmation. This is another great read and I look forward to more forays with R&A Insights.
