Summary Another murder, another unanswered question. And Detective Mendoza hates to leave things undone. Hers was the kind of casual homicide that occurred every week in a city like Los Angeles in the sixties. Beaten, robbed, and left in an abandoned lot, Elena Ramirez's death was like many others... in fact, nearly identical to a murder that happened six months earlier-a case that Detective Luis Mendoza was never able to solve. The detective isn't a fan of puzzles but knows one when he sees it. He puts two and two together-these vicious murders must have been committed by the same deranged individual-and leads the charge into a case that is astounding in its complexity. Along with the begrudging help of Detective-Sergeant Hackett, Mendoza must separate the many twisted threads of this crime-from murder to black-market adoption and extortion. Considered the "queen of the police procedural," Dell Shannon offers a glimpse into the world of police-work before the aid of forensics or technology. An Edgar Award finalist in 1961, Case Pending introduces the Mexican American Detective Mendoza, a dynamic character who will stop at nothing to find answers, working in a Los Angeles that had not forgotten the 1943 "zoot suit" riots targeting young Chicanos.
