Jump is a story about finding true love in the midst of a multiple homicide. When the most hated landlord in San Francisco takes an unexpected jump off the roof of his own building, it isn't too hard to find suspects. But the police want to call it a suicide, since both the mayor and the press are complaining about the dismal closure rate for homicide investigations. But ex-cop Sam McGowan knows it was murder. He also knows that anyone living on the top floor of the building should be a suspect, including himself. So Sam decides to get to know his neighbors. As more bodies surface and alliances shift, Sam finds himself jumping back and forth between his old life as a cop and his new one as a murder suspect, unable to decide where he really belongs.

"A diverse group of apartment dwellers in San Francisco suddenly learns that their landlord has jumped to his death. Sam, a widower and recently retired cop, finds himself trying to solve the crime by getting to know his fellow tenants. The story's characters give life to a different and sometimes-funny police procedural, but it's narrator Tom Weiner's voices that keep listeners engaged. Weiner sounds like a cast of 20 as he navigates amid gravelly voiced Sam and his neighbors: two female African-American entrepreneurs, a no-nonsense elderly woman, a middle-aged singer, and, best of all, two drug-dealing but likable brothers. There are also assorted villains and minor characters, all creatively narrated. Never once does Weiner confuse a voice, despite the characters' varied ages, vocal personalities, and ethnicities. M.B.
