This book starts off with an article explaining how Jo (Joslyn) Peters came to be, and contains all of Jo's cases, sequentially, in the form of short stories, a play, and the beginning chapters of two books. Jo began life as a Los Angeles County Assistant District Attorney. After ten years, she burned out-too much violence, too many deaths-and then too many death threats. The latter became so bad that she was issued a gun and learned how to shoot. But that's not the life she wanted. She moved on to a prodigious corporate law firm in Century City-only to find out they wanted her to handle two criminal cases for lucrative clients. Her career there was short-lived, but deadly for another new hire.To heal herself, Jo came home-took a job as a part-time City Attorney for the town she grew up in. City Attorneys handle only civil cases, not criminal ones. In Death in a Small Town, a novel, Jo tries to prove that a friend did not commit suicide, and finds she still loves investigative work. In the second novel, Upclose and Personal, a friend says someone is trying to kill her and wants Jo to find out who wants her dead. This starts Jo on the path to becoming a P. I.Welcome to Jo Peters' world.
