Product Description

Product Description

Six-year-old Nemo is a member of the Concrete Community, the homeless who scrape out a life on the streets and in the shelters. Street-savvy beyond his years, he relies on instincts to stay safe and cunning to find food and clothes. But curiosity gets the best of him when he finds a tunnel in the sub-basement of an abandoned building. His mother warns him to stay away. It could be dangerous and he might get lost. The tunnel runs for blocks and is a great place to explore. Then one day he ventures too far and finds where it leads. Nemo wishes he had listened to his mother.

Sam Casey is an investigative consultant for the Chasen Heights Police Department. Part Native American, she has the unique ability to hear the dead speak, touch something the killer touched and pick up clues about a case. But her life is currently in a tailspin, and her talents have escaped her. If ever there was a time that she needed those skills, it's when a homeless woman is found dead, a needle in her arm. But it wasn't the drugs that killed her; it was the bullet. The case turns personal for Sam when ballistics shows the bullet came from her husband's gun.

Nemo has attracted the attention of Alex Red Cloud, a family friend of Sam's, after Alex witnesses the street urchin stealing fruit. Why is Alex so secretive about the boy? How did her husband, Jake, know the drug addict? And what does Nemo find on the other side of the tunnel's door? The answers lead to a shocking conclusion in the seventh installment of the award-winning Sam Casey series.

“A promising mystery of particular interest to readers of Native American mysteries.”
— Booklist

“…an action-packed mystery that will garner much attention from fans who enjoy a
police procedural with a twist.” — Midwest Book Review

4.0 out of 5 stars lack of continuity 12 Sep 2014
By fozzie
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I do like these books but yet again there is a big gap missing between what is happening at the end of book 6 and the beginning of book 7. So frustrating! I checked that I was reading the right one again in case I was on the wrong book. Continuity is important

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed 14 Feb 2014
By maddog - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I've read all the previous Sam Casey Mysteries and enjoyed them. I read for pleasure. I do not like my main characters to suffer, have terrible things happen to them and be tortured. That said, there's no way I could have enjoyed that book. Had I gotten it from the library, I would have returned it without finishing it. Since it was on my Kindle, I quickly skimmed through, hoping to find some good somewhere -- not much of an improvement. The damage was done and irreversible. The ending, although not as bad as the beginning, was also disappointing. I doubt I'll read another book by S. D. Tooley -- certainly not without reading all the reviews first. I usually don't read reviews first because they give so much away, but in this case, I wish I had. I never would have gotten the book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Exciting Police Investigation 27 Dec 2013
By Wild Nelly - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
S.D. Tooley's The Tunnel is a fast-paced, hard-core murder mystery. The plot is well organized and the characters have well-rounded personalities. I was a bit confused at first as the story bounced back and forth to various groups of characters and events. I assume that I would have caught on quicker if I had read earlier books from the Sam Casey series. Despite that, I was hooked from the very beginning in this exciting, complex chase to find the murderer. Looks like I will need to start from the first book in the series to sate my appetite of this dramatic story.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Tunnel A Sam Casey Mystery 2 Dec 2013
By Teritree001971 - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
TUNNEL is a the seventh in the Sam Casey mystery series. When this mystery opens, Sam has lost her husband and is now attempting to deal with the aftermath. Even though this is the only one in the series I've read, references to the past made me curious as to what the other contained.

The characters are well written and we're given descriptions, so I had no problems following the storyline, nor did I become bored with it. You feel for what they are going through from little Nemo who lives on the streets with a sense of fairness ingrained in him by his mother. You'll especially enjoy the characters names he gives the different people he meets and how they relate to each other. In addition, we see some of the “gifts” characters possess presented in such a way as they are not seen as a joke. It is something real and without a derogatory stigma.

As for the mystery itself, I was unable to determine the killer with 100% certainty until the end of the story. It has well developed characters and you can see the killer, but you can't. Even some of the characters, such as Alex, have mysteries of their own, which could lead you off center if you're not paying attention.

4.0 out of 5 stars Like Potato Chips! 5 Dec 2013
By Growing Up Little - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
Sam Casey Mystery books are like potato chips - once you have one... you're going to want another!

This was a fast paced, smooth flowing, seamless and enjoyable read.

Although this is one of several in the line of Sam Casey Mystery books... I had no problem diving in and understanding the characters and their relationships to one another.

My two favorite characters?
Nemo - a 6 year old homeless boy who lives for several months in an abandoned building with his mother's dead body
Alex - a gray haired, jewelry making trial man, who acts as a protector and confidante to Sam (the main character) and her mother Abby.

I would award this book a 4.5 out of 5 stars!

4.0 out of 5 stars Emotionally Charged Mystery 3 Dec 2013
By C. Thilmany - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is an emotionally charged mystery that will have readers of the series feeling a greater interest in the outcome than normal. Sam’s challenges this time are more difficult and her abilities to get answers from the dead seem to have escaped her.

We once again follow more than one police case from different points of view, each with its own twists and turns. One involves how Jake’s gun was used to kill a homeless woman. And we meet a new character that I hope we’ll see again in the future. Nemo is a homeless, orphaned six-year old, street savvy and compassionate kid who discovers the tunnel that leads to a number of answers. We even get a character that you will enjoy disliking.

The author, as always, does a really good job with interesting characters as well as the slow reveal of details through a number of twists. Even though this is the 7th book in the series, I don’t believe it’s necessary to have read the prior books to get into this one. Other than Sam & Jake’s family life and some past history that’s explained, there isn’t an ongoing back story moving toward some conclusion that would make it difficult to jump in at this point.

Keep some tissues handy; your emotions will run the gamut.
