For a while there, back in the eighties, I was asking myself "Is this a new trend or what?"
Private eyes in the Land of The Latter Day Saints?
Down these clean streets a Mormon must go?
For a brief moment, it looked like it. Along with Moroni Traveler and Gabe Utley, there was also JASON COULTER, a former Salt Lake City homicide detective, currently living the hopefully more simple life in a small cabin. Just him, his trusty guitar, an old cherry red Gibson ES-355, and his pet cat Stony, in the ski resort town of Alta, Utah.
Not exactly downtown Salt Lake city, but the shadow of the Mormon Church still falls far and wide. Jason sleuths around in a gray Honda with a bag of burglar tools in the back, smokes Pall Malls, drinks Moosehead beer, listens to jazz, and seems to be on very good terms with most of the Salt Lake City cops. Jason left the force after a particularly nasty case involving a serial killer, related in his debut, Carnivores. He returned as a private detective in 1991's Ten of Swords.
