The Caleso MurderseBook - 2014
When a dangerous criminal breaks out of jail, the Island detective is on the case Palerdo should have been executed for the murder of Carlos Mantiro. Granted clemency, he is sent to prison instead. Palerdo vows to kill Se̜ora Mantiro, whom he hates with a passion. To detective Jo Gar, something about the story doesn't add up-men kill the husbands of women they love, not women they hate. When Palerdo breaks out of prison and the Filipino police find the se̜ora's strangled body, nearly everyone is positive Palerdo has struck again. But Gar isn't so sure. If the se̜ora had been the target, Palerdo wouldn't have bothered to bump off her driver too. And a seasoned criminal would have waited for cover of darkness to exact his revenge. Convinced that the real murderer is trying to frame Palerdo, Gar begins his investigation. Will Palerdo be the next victim?
