Mistaken Identity Crisis: Death on the Cable Car by James J. Cudney is the fourth book in the Braxton Campus Mysteries series. Kellan’s brother Gabriel is back in his life and is reconnecting with the family, but his past is catching up with him. Jewelry thefts from eight years ago resurface with a new string of thefts that draw Kellan into the case which quickly becomes a murder investigation when a body is found. Determined to prove his brother’s innocence and catch a killer, Kellan searches for the culprit behind the thefts to uncover what happened eight years ago. While he dives into this latest mystery, he also finds the time to help April with her investigation of his in-laws whose feud with the Vargas mob family led to the kidnapping of his ex-wife.

The main mystery focuses on the murder and the jewelry thefts, which forces Kellan to uncover his brother’s role in the thefts from the past. The other part of the mystery has Kellan teaming up with April to dig into his in-law drama. James J. Cudney weaves these threads of the mystery together to deliver an exciting case that has it all: murder, thefts, and kidnapping. The love he has for his daughter remains at the heart of it all as Kellan is drawn deeper and deeper into the mysteries that rock the campus from murder to mob feuds to kidnapping to jewelry thefts, but the bond he has with his daughter is the true driving force for the character. Mistaken Identity Crisis is a delightful mystery that blends family dynamics, jewelry thefts, and murder in an addictive new installment in the series that has a humorous voice, action-filled moments, sleuthing antics, and dramatic family situations.
