Riassunto: Set against a backdrop of racial tension and deadly force controversy in Dallas, Open Season introduces Sarah Kingsly and Angel Johnson, homicide detectives who are unlikely and unwilling partners. When people start dying in area shopping malls, the detectives find themselves up against a killer who has his own race card to play.
This is the first book in the "Seasons" mystery series and the second, Stalking Season, has been contracted for a 2012 release.
The idea for this story started to germinate while I was mall-walking with a friend. Each time we passed long dark corridors leading off the main aisles, I couldn't help but think of how many places a person could hide down there in the shadows if he or she were up to no good.(Voicing that probably did nothing to improve my friend's heart condition.)
At about the same time, the Dallas Police Department came under national scrutiny for its use of deadly force. Racial unrest also simmered just below the surface of polite behavior in the city, and I thought it would be interesting to look at those issues through the eyes of two women on opposite sides. Why not make them homicide detectives who have to track a serial killer through the shopping malls?
This project started out as a screenplay requested by Dallas filmmakers, Alan and Cynthia Mondell, and when the feature never got beyond development, the rights to the story came back to me and I decided to novelize the script. Looking back over that crazy period of straddling two mediums like some daft rodeo performer, I realize that the strength of the story came from the exercise. Not that I'm eager to 'stretch' myself that way again any time soon, but I won't ever forget the lessons I leaned along the way
