Theodore Roosevelt Crenshaw – the Teddy of the title – has it all. We encounter him in his teenage years as a tall, blonde-haired Adonis, nature-born to have fun in the Californian sunshine. His feckless youth is abandoned to the sybaritic pleasures of surfing, drinking and chasing gals in a paneled Studebaker station wagon with the long boards hanging out the back. The good times are seductive enough, for those of us who nostalgically recall those heady Beach Boys’ harmonies and ambience, we wo ...more

This book was so engrossing I read it in one setting. In one sense it is a mystery story but what moved me most of all was its fascinating descriptions of all kinds of interesting somewhat offbeat characters.

There is a psychological complexity and insight in the writing which left me with an uncertain feeling as to whether or n ...more

What a story! "Teddy and Teri" is a book I couldn't put down. It was a bit of a guilty pleasure to read.
It's so full of unexpected things, and at the total center of the story is Teddy, and the love of his life, his daughter Teri. It's an unusual story, since neither knows that they are related, but they form a lifelong bond. It gets to be a tangled web as the different people in Teddy's life keep secrets and relationships ebb and flow, with much drama and life events. It's a good story, because

Teddy Crenshaw, son of a prominent Manhattan Beach, California dentist and his politically prominent wife, is guilty of murder and/or rape or maybe something even worse! And yet maybe he is guilty of nothing more than living an easy shopkeeper’s life with Pamela White, a sharp business woman ten years his senior.

Enter Jerry Weinstein, an epicurean criminal lawyer and family friend who sets about unraveling the case which turns out to involve a precocious 13-year-old little darling, her neurotic
Teddy and Teri is a mystery novel that begins more or less in the present and then takes the reader on a trip to the past then brings us back to where the story begins. The author introduces us to Teddy during his younger years and we watch him grow up. He had ambitions, but gradually life drains all of those away from him. But not just him, those around him as well. He loses friends to life, war, drugs and change itself. He has a chance encounter with a woman from his past, a child is created, ...more

A rollercoaster ride of well-drawn, appealing characters, Teddy and Teri is a treat for the mind and the sences . hard-driven story is a must-read, especially for those who love a winding Murder Mystery
