Caldwell’s ‘Two Paths’ is His Eighth Book
It was the combination of being retired and staying home far more than usual to avoid the COVID virus, that helped enable Jim Caldwell of South Park to launch two novels in one year. After the success of Marty’s Writings Journal in February 2020, a whimsical story about his delivering the Post-Gazette in the fifties when he was twelve years old, Caldwell decided to go a whole new direction this time and write a murder-mystery. The title of this latest book is Two Paths.

“I employed a theme often used before, that of siblings being separated at birth and finding each other later in life,” said Caldwell. “However, the twist in my plot for Two Paths is the event that triggers their lives to collide. The two brothers learn of each other’s existence because of a homicide.”
Caldwell says the action that unfolds within the storyline is not about ‘who’ committed the felony, as the reader will know that up front. The suspense will be ‘how’ the crime is solved and why it became the occasion for the teens to discover each other.
When asked to explain further, Jim laughed, “I delighted in creating an inimitable character in Saul Heath, the criminal investigator, and solving the case like an episode of CSI.”
This is an excellent early Christmas gift for that reader on your list who enjoys reading this genre. Two Paths, his eighth published fiction novel, is available on Amazon in paperback only for now.
