Don’t drink, go to meetings…and investigate a murder.
When Bruce Kohler wakes up in detox on the Bowery on Christmas Day, his biggest fear is dying of boredom if he stays sober. Instead, he’s catapulted not only into a murder investigation but also into the all-absorbing world of recovery in the 12-step programs in New York. Not drinking is just the beginning.
When a detox buddy unexpectedly dies in the next bed, Bruce cares more than he expected to. It’s only a few stops on the subway from the Bowery to Park Avenue, where the victim’s family is trying to act as if their alcoholic black sheep, with his trust fund and his unfortunate nasty streak, had not lost everything except the family secrets.
Helping Bruce in his quest to stay sober and find the killer are two friends he thought he’d lost: a computer geek and the world’s most codependent addictions counselor. In the corporate towers or the church basements of New York, they’re bound to catch a murderer.
ELIZABETH ZELVIN is a New York City psychotherapist who has directed alcohol treatment programs, including one on the Bowery. She has written and lectured widely on addictions, codependency, and online mental health. Currently she does online therapy at LZcybershrink.com

Chesapeake Crimes 3
15 Tales of Mystery, Mayhem and Murder
"The Chesapeake Bay area is home to strong winds, joys, and fears, where you lock your doors at night in the cities and probably should lock them in the countryside, too, especially after reading this anthology. [It] gave me 15 reasons to wish I had not moved to the Midwest. And for the folks who are still living in this supposedly mild-mannered region, all I can say is, enjoy the weather, but watch your back." -- Sujata Massey
