Stacy Tavitt is hot on the trail of Jamal Harris, making this a combination of personal/professional investigation. Not only does she feel responsible for informant Yolanda’s young child, but finding Jamal might bring her closer to solving the mystery behind the murders happening among the Cleveland Browns' football players. Not really a football enthusiast, Lieutenant Tavitt juggles her handicap of sports knowledge with the facts that are spread out before her. Add this to her live-in brother’s inconsistencies and hidden agenda; a crippling respiratory system, compliments of a prior investigation; and a hidden romance, and Stacy has a full plate. But she is a cop above all other aspects of her life, and that is where her focus lies. As Stacy and her partner, injured Austin Cerrer, combine their efforts with the Cleveland Division of Police Narcotics Unit and the professional football franchise of the Cleveland Browns, she realizes the harsh realities of her physical handicap while refusing to allow her personal needs to overcome her professional responsibilities.

Code for Murder: A Stacy Tavitt Mystery by Eliot Parker is an example of one of West Virginia’s best kept secrets. Author Eliot Parker paints a believable story of intrigue and mystery with unusual excellence, getting into the mind of a main character of the opposite gender. Surprising plot twists fill any gaps in this well-rounded tale that is the perfect anytime read. Set not far from the author’s home stomping grounds, this murder mystery ranks up there with Baldacci and Martini in narrative clarity and character banter.
