Deuce is the third installment of the Jax Diamond Mysteries by Gail Meath. It's the year 1923. After spending the last few weeks chasing down gangsters and dirty cops, Private Detective Jax Diamond arrives in his girlfriend Laura Graystone's hometown of Millbury, Massachusetts, hoping to shed some light on her father's car accident years ago. But when Jax's loyal canine partner Ace discovers a dead body in the woods, he finds himself following the clues left by a killer who is always one step ahead. Jax calls on his best friend, Lieutenant Tim Murphy, for help when he realizes that the victim may have been involved in a bootlegging operation. Meanwhile, Laura's brother Tommy has a secret of his own, making him one of the prime suspects. With another body discovered and a little girl missing, will Jax find the culprit?
