Cause of Death

By Renee Benzaim

Crime & mystery | Paperback, eBook


A Serial Killer. Black widow spiders. A race to catch the perp before he strikes again. Meet Robbery/Homicide Detective Annie Avants and her partner, Detective Tom Weston of the Kern County Sheriff's Office. CAUSE OF DEATH is the first entry in my police procedurals series In this dusty farm community, someone is abducting and killing young Hispanic females. His weapon of choice - black widow spiders. Can these two dedicated Detectives catch him with the help of their peers and friends, Deputy District Attorney Jesse Greyeyes and Technical Investigations Chief Laine DelMonte even with little criminal evidence to aid them? Cause of Death is a spine-chilling (detective)thriller that keeps you guessing right up to the last minute - and makes you wonder about the "normal" people in YOUR daily life.



I remember the first long story I ever wrote. I was in the third grade and my teacher, Miss Steere, asked us each to write a story about something in history. I chose to write about the Donner party and the tragedies that befell them as they tried to make it to the Wild West. I went on and on. I was having so much fun and making up stories about the people and conversations between them. It was like a game to me. It didn't occur to me that I wanted to be a writer when I grew up. I wasn't even old enough to understand what it meant to be grown up. Throughout school, whenever I had to write something, I always had a lot of fun with assignments. I remember writing about the Salem Witches when I was in high school and how exciting it was to make "real" people who lived then and, unfortunately, also died. So what did I do when I was finally an adult? I worked as an accountant, secretary, draftsman of pre-fab metal buildings, I studied Criminal Justice and worked at the Sheriff's Department for a time, and I ended up with a career as a paralegal. Well, that wasn't too bad. It encompassed a lot of research and writing and, in the meantime, I had actually written short stories, poetry, and two unpublished novels. I did have one non-fiction piece published in a magazine in the 80s. Yippee! When I lived in Hawaii, I even helped a famous Chef publish to cook books. Finally, I said "enough", quit everything, took early retirement, and moved to Morocco. Now, I am a writer. I love my life and I hope you enjoy my books as much as I enjoy writing them. I have a lot of fun with my characters and stories. To me, they are real people and my joy is sharing them with you and the rest of the world.
