    The author is writing from a “true life experience”, since she herself is a licensed private investigator. Her experience and knowledge made the main character of Madison Kelly real and believable. I really like it when the author can make each and every step of the story ring true. I read [Anonymous]... the first book in this series, and absolutely loved it so when I received a copy of [Double Take] to review I was very excited and was not in any way disappointed.

    Double Take is the follow-up to Elizabeth Breck's début novel, 'Anonymous', the second to feature PI Madison Kelly. Madison is returning from a previous case when she receives a call from Travis Moore, a pharmaceutical sales rep to help find Barrett Brown his journalist girlfriend who has been missing for a while.

As Madison continues to follow Barrett's investigative trail, she uncovers a multi-million dollar insurance fraud and figures that Barrett has been killed. But after finding Barrett's boss breaking into and searching the missing woman's apartment, Madison follows him to an abandoned building and makes a startling discovery. But then Madison and Barrett are snatched by some thugs and it will take all their wits to free themselves from their captors and stay alive. This was a thrilling read in the Madison Kelly PI series.

    ★ ★ ★ ★ 1/2 (rounded up) This originally appeared at The Irresponsible Reader. --- Five days was an eternity with a missing person; forty-eight or even seventy-two hours was the cut-off for a good chance of finding the person alive. But five days was still something to work with. Madison could help bring another person safely home. Finding someone who was kidnapped or lost or just needed help to get home was so fulfilling, it was like having a life’s purpose she’d never known she'd been without. WHA ★ ★ ★ ★ 1/2 (rounded up) This originally appeared at The Irresponsible Reader. --- Five days was an eternity with a missing person; forty-eight or even seventy-two hours was the cut-off for a good chance of finding the person alive. But five days was still something to work with. Madison could help bring another person safely home. Finding someone who was kidnapped or lost or just needed help to get home was so fulfilling, it was like having a life’s purpose she’d never known she'd been without. WHAT'S DOUBLE TAKE ABOUT? Madison is approached by Travis, the desperate boyfriend of Barrett Brown, a reporter for an almost impossibly-small newspaper who's been missing for five days. He's afraid she's been abducted, he's afraid she's being tortured or worse, and is about to die. Madison is dealing with some medical issues and just finished a case that took her out of state, but how can she possibly leave this to the police (who don't seem to believe that Barrett didn't just ghost Travis)? So she jumps into action—retracing Barrett's steps, figuring out what story she was working on—assuming that's the reason she's missing. This leads Madison down a twisty path into a criminal conspiracy that she can only see the barest outlines of—and might end up leading her into grave danger. While she's searching, Madison has to deal with someone having her followed, the aforementioned medical issues, and a truly inconvenient spark of attraction between her and Travis. Who might not be the great boyfriend he gives the initial impression of being. MY ALMA MATER Chapter One takes place on the campus of the University of Idaho—so you know Breck gets extra points from me for that. Would've been an easy 5-Star read if the whole book had taken place there—or at least most of it. But no, Madison has to go home to San Diego—sure, it's hard to blame her, San Diego in October has got to be more pleasant—wrecking my hope for a PI novel on campus. MADISON'S DEVELOPMENT After the events of Anonymous, Madison's picked up some notoriety—she's become a go-to for missing persons. This is great, she'd been bemoaning how all she'd been doing was insurance work in Anonymous, and it wasn't that fulfilling—but as we see in the above quotation, she's finding satisfaction in her work. It's also nice to see that she's getting some attention, you frequently get the idea in P.I. fiction that the work is largely unseen. Another departure from the norm is that Madison's monetarily successful at the moment—the typical PI is scraping by. Not Madison—at least not now. The focus on missing persons reminded me of Elvis Cole, just up the coast from Madison—but despite some wealthy clients, you don't get the idea that he's as successful. He definitely doesn't seem to get the notoriety. So, I guess I have to update my one sentence description of Madison from being "Kinsey Millhone for today" to add "with an Elvis Cole twist." It's good that she's got money coming in, because this self-employed, and likely under-insured woman has medical bills. I wasn't sure what to think of the discussion of Madison's past cancer in the first book, but seeing it here, I'm seeing what Beck's intention is and I like the way it gives the character another dimension and unconsciously (sometimes, anyway) shapes her actions. MADISON AND BARRETT One of the ways you can see the appropriateness of the title is that from the first conversation with Travis, Madison starts noting all the coincidental parallels between what's she's told about Barrett and what she knows about herself. This can go one of two ways, typically—either this becomes a large hurdle for the protagonist doing their job, or it's a motivator. This largely serves as a motivation—but it also causes a couple of problems for Madison—at most it's a distraction occasionally. It's arguable that she gets invested pretty quickly because of the parallels, but not by much. Also, Breck finds a way to use this sense of them being so similar in both a positive and negative way for Madison—and then adds a new layer to this later in the book. It didn't go the way I expected, fully, but I appreciated it. SO, WHAT DID I THINK ABOUT DOUBLE TAKE? I was pretty enthusiastic about Anyonymous, and this cemented my initial impression of Breck and Madison. I was enjoying this the entire time, but toward the end, Beck shifts into high gear and...wow. It's the kind of ending where you find yourself leaning forward as you read, because somehow that helps you get to what happens next faster; you don't hear the music/people/animals around you; and your eyes move just too slowly. Okay, maybe I'm exaggerating there, but woe betide anyone who attempted to distract me during the last quarter or so of the book. This is a fast-paced book. The main action starts Monday evening and ends in the pre-dawn on Friday. In that time, Madison has to find a missing (hopefully still alive woman), figure out why she's missing/abducted (which leads to a larger criminal act), deal with some personal (some of which should have been dealt with already) and medical issues—and maybe catch a wink or two of sleep. All that in a short amount of time helps explain a couple of the blunders she makes—but those help ground and humanize her, so who cares about them? Especially the way Breck uses those mistakes. And, hey, she still quotes Nero Wolfe twice. University of Idaho and Wolfe quotations—it's really like Elizabeth Breck wrote this for me. A delusional thought, I realize, but I like my delusions. I do wish Breck had made it a little more difficult for the reader to see the things that Madison didn't/put together. I get why she did that, and it was probably the right move, but I still would've preferred to work a little harder. That's the sole issue I have with Double Take, and who knows, any other day, I might have considered that a feature instead of a bug. Even if you're not me, if you're a fan of P.I. novels, I don't see how this novel/author/character/series doesn't appeal to you. Madison's tough, smart, lucky (and knows how important that is), and committed. Brisk and assured writing. A nice bit of sleuthing to find a pretty clever crime (committed by some people who really shouldn't ever get into criminal activity—and some who seem born to it). My only regret is that I have to wait for the third book in this series to be published before I can dive in.

    I know all private investigators in crime fiction have some baggage. But, Elizabeth Breck’s second Madison Kelly mystery, Double Take, piles it on for the PI. Not only does she identify with the woman she’s searching for, but she’s a cancer survivor facing a possible recurrence. With her fears, she’s a basket case at times, and tends to cry. Those may be triggers for some readers. Madison Kelly is just trying to make a difference in the world.

But, Elizabeth Breck’s second Madison Kelly mystery, Double Take, piles it on for the PI. Not only does she identify with the woman she’s searching for, but she’s a cancer survivor facing a possible recurrence. With her fears, she’s a basket case at times, and tends to cry. Those may be triggers for some readers. Madison Kelly is just trying to make a difference in the world. She tends to take cases that involve missing people, ones she hopes to bring home to their families. She just returned to La Jolla after finding a missing girl, when a desperate man asks for help. Travis Moore says his girlfriend, a reporter named Barrett Brown, has been missing for five days, and the police don’t seem to be looking for her. He doesn’t know what story she might have been investigating for her job, but he’s worried. Madison is worried, too, when she hears a tall blond that resembles Madison hasn’t been heard from in five days. Madison investigates by tracking Barrett’s recent steps. The missing woman’s apartment has been trashed, and it’s obvious someone was searching for something. It’s only when she asks at the small newspaper, The HIllcrest Holler, that she finds something she can use. Barrett was asking questions at the county administration building, and she was looking at death certificates. How did three couples die in accidents one month after another with death certificates signed by the same person and the same lawyer involved? As she follows Barrett’s trail, Madison uncovers a scheme making millions for someone. She suspects Barrett might be dead, but she’s determined to find answers. It’s too bad everyone is lying to her. While the case itself is fascinating, I had a hard time with Madison. I know some of her tears and over-the-top emotions come from her worry about the recurrence of her cancer. Double Take could have used a little tighter editing. There was too much emotional handwringing as Madison insists she has to look for Barrett. Over and over, she says she has to find Barrett. I get it. She’s searching for Barrett. The author also uses one of my least favorite tropes that usually occurs in cozy mysteries, not in PI novels. Here’s a PI with a friend on the police force who wants his help, but won’t tell him what she’s working on because she’s afraid the police will take over her case. That always irritates me. Then there’s Dave, the surfer Madison loves although she refuses to call him her boyfriend. What’s with that? I also had a hard time with the scene when she’s apologizing to a tree. I understand the author herself is a licensed PI in California, so I”m sure the investigating parts are right, from the stakeouts to the document searches. But, I still had problems with the writing of the book. In other words, Double Take has an intriguing story, but I felt it could have been handled better.

Madison Kelly is a highly sought-after private investigator who specializes in missing persons cases. Her current client Travis Moore is anxious to find his missing girlfriend, young journalist Barrett Brown. She inexplicably vanished five days earlier without a trace and Madison is eager to find her. Retracing Barrett’s steps, Madison’s discoveries are vaguely ominous and her anxiety over finding the young woman kicks up a few notches. She soon uncovers the most likely motive for Barrett’s disappearance but will she find her before it is too late? Madison has just returned home from an out of state case and she is exhausted. But her concern for the missing journalist is more important than rest so she agrees to take Travis’ case. Although determined to find Barrett, Madison is distracted by personal issues throughout her investigation. Equally curious and mostly annoying is her realization that she is being followed. But Madison is more concerned about finding Barrett than figuring out who is following her and why. Madison knows where Barrett mostly likely was before she disappeared but the trail quickly goes cold. Her interview with Barrett’s boss Cornell Jones provides one of her most tangible and ultimately productive threads to follow. Madison continues follow each piece of evidence she unearths and the scope of her discovery is absolutely explosive. Unfortunately, her preoccupation over her relationship with her maybe boyfriend surfer Dave Rich and possible health issues leads to careless mistakes that could prove to be deadly. Double Take is an engrossing mystery with a flawed but appealing protagonist. The storyline is well-developed and moves at a brisk pace. The La Jolla and San Diego settings are brilliant detailed and spring vividly to life. Madison’s quest for answers about Barrett’s disappearance takes a shocking turn and Elizabeth Breck brings this tension-filled mystery to a pulse-pounding conclusion. Although this latest release is the second installment in the Madison Kelly Mystery series, it can easily be read as a standalone.

    A mystery, yes, but with elements of self-discovery, self-realization, acceptance and other human life dimensions that assist in resolving the mystery.

Madison Kelly, a well-respected private detective, is hired by Travis Moore to find his girlfriend Barrett Anna Brown, an investigative reporter who has been missing for five days, or has she? According to Travis, the police have done little, so he needs her well-known expertise. As the investigation continues, the author poses many questions in the readers mind—why did Barrett go missing, is someone responsible, and many others in this intriguing and captivating read. Madison must resolve many obstacles thrown at her and possible harm, through trickery, careful planning and thought to find Barrett hopefully alive. One of the first questions is, did Barrett disappear voluntarily? Clues are gathered quickly but they present further possible hurdles and crimes, which add to the investigative plot. With many twists and turns plus some surprises, the mystery might be resolved but to whose satisfaction, since multiple characters become involved—some for the good and some not working for the betterment of the people they represent. Is this connected to the larger story Barrett was chasing thus changing the focus of the investigation (or was she involved in the larger story) and is Madison satisfied with her investigation in this multi-layer mystery? One note, the first two chapters are the resolution of Madison’s first case to set the background of her investigation skills, thought process and resolve. The author Elizabeth Breck is a licensed private investigator thus understands and is able to portray realistically the mindset of the fictional detective Madison Kelly as she might proceed in true life. An intriguing and rewarding read. Highly recommended! I received a complimentary copy of this book from Crooked Lane Books in exchange for an honest opinion. The views expressed by this reviewer are entirely my own.

This case was not your average missing person’s case. Not only was Madison trying to find a missing Barrett, but she was also investigating what story Barrett was looking into herself. It was interesting to see how everything was connected and how it would all come together. This time, Madison seemed to have a slightly bigger network of friends/people she could talk to and who could help her investigate things. Even though Madison likes to do things her own way and usually by herself, it was a nice change to have her not do everything on her own and to rely on others, even if it was just for something small. There were a few red flags when it came to certain characters or situations that I thought Madison with all her experience should have realized there was something strange going on. Madison should have involved the police a lot sooner than when she did also. That just makes the story even more entertaining though. All in all, I enjoyed reading this book and look forward to the next mystery that Madison aims to solve. RATING: 3½ OUT OF 5. **Though this book was given to me on behalf of the Publisher, the thoughts and opinions expressed are solely my own.**

    I rate this 3.5 stars. Also, I received the book for free in a Goodreads giveaway. I liked the mystery. The answer wasn’t obvious. The writing was distracting. A lot of unnecessary details that took me out of the story. Two examples I can think of - she plugged her iPod into the car radio, she wrote in brown magic marker. Random details.
