Double-Time out of Taos is a work of fiction in the mystery, suspense, and action subgenres, and it forms the second novel of the Nash Running Bear Mystery series. The work is best suited to the general adult reading audience owing to some instances of explicit language and moderate violence. Penned by Baer Charlton, in this thrilling work, we find ourselves back with FBI Special Agent Nash Running Bear as she is forced into a seemingly boring job babysitting a congressman and his family after they receive some threats. But the assignment turns out to be the prelude to a deeply sinister plot in which four dangerous assassins have their sights on Nash and her team.
Baer Charlton knows how to deliver thrills aplenty in this well-paced mystery novel, and I always felt the keen suspenseful touches that promise that the next shocking twist is just around the corner. I also really appreciated the LGBTQ+ elements, which were naturally placed and never used as a gimmick, and it’s wonderful to see such a broad representation in the mystery and suspense subgenres. Nash is a deeply likable hero with plenty of guts, but she’s also emotional and open at the right moments, and the close narrative style allows us to get to know her and root for her when things get tough. The New Mexico vistas were cinematically described as a gorgeous backdrop to the tense action. I would certainly recommend Double-Time out of Taos to crime, thriller, and mystery fans seeking original writing and a hero you’ll quickly grow to love.
