"Loose Ends was a great read, if you're looking for a solid mystery this is a book worth your time. I was hooked by the story from the very beginning and I barely put it down until I finished it." - Melissa V.

When a young girl is kidnapped, street-smart but damaged San Francisco ex-cop California "Cal" Corwin is engaged to find and rescue her before murder raises the stakes. As a straightforward case takes unexpected twists, Cal must quell a growing fear that an anguished mother may never see her child again. With a shadowy crime lord lurking behind every unexpected clue, Cal struggles to tie up loose ends before evil claims its next victim.

Loose Ends is the first book in the Cal Corwin P. I. mystery series from D. D. VanDyke, though the books can be read in any order. Set against the rich backdrop of the San Francisco Bay Area, Cal Corwin novels brim with intrigue and fully fleshed characters from cops and criminals to hit men, oddball family and unexpected allies.

The Cal Corwin Private Eye mystery-thriller-suspense series:
- Loose Ends (Contains Off The Leash: Cal Corwin Novelette)
- In A Bind
- Slipknot
- The Girl In The Morgue
- Deadly Secrets

Interesting characters. Interesting case with questions all the way to the end...as well as a last minute twist that makes me want to read book #2.

I was presently surprised with the twist and turns. All the characters were interesting. For a short story the leads had power and I enjoyed them a lot. I would recommend this book.

It's nice top have a believable scarred heroine as the wisecracking P.I. Not Angelina Jolie or Charlise Theron with superhuman strength and reflexes to compliment their supermodel beauty but a girl who knows her way around guns and cars, can't entice the men she wants but gets hit on regularly enough. She has to think her way around gunfights, but she doesn't have a debilitating respect for the law. Questions and answers have to be carefully considered.

This book was good. It made you think and wonder about certain characters and where they really stood.

Great fast-paced P.I. novel. Loved all the references to the evolving internet and IT gadgets and apps. Good background story for the present day San Francisco.

It is a quick read and exciting story. I would consider it a short story and not a novel. It might be adaptable to a TV show, but there may need a few more characters developed to make it viable.

Read like a take-off of a Mickey Spillane novel without the wit! Will not be getting any of the others in this series.

Highly recommended This story has many good things going for it -- it is well written, has a strong woman as its main character. while keeping the mystery going until the very end. A pet peeve I have is when a story is not edited thoroughly. And, this one is done very well. As a bonus, there is another short story titled Loose Ends. While it is only a few short pages the story is complete and the mystery continues until the final pages.

I love this new character and look forward to reading more of her adventures and getting to know her better. I hope the next story begins where this one left off because it didn't seem finished. Too many unanswered questions for me.
