Hi, I'm writing a tango series. The first book is set in Atlanta, but the second book will take place in a different city, in this case, Bellevue, WA. There's no problem moving the heroine because tango dancers frequently attend conferences and events in different cities, but I'd also like - if possible - to have the detective from the first book appear in the second. I had originally thought he could transfer to the Bellevue police, but in speaking with them, it turns out you'd have to start your career all over again. One option would be for the detective to consult, on cold cases for example, which would give him access to police resources but not the power to arrest anyone. Or, he could apply for the job when a new city incorporates. Or, he could simply have retired. For all I know he could become an expert in something really unique and travel to police departments around the country, teaching whatever arcane skill he has (I can set up any of these options in the first book.) But I'm also wondering how true to life this needs to be. CSI experts don't interview suspects in real life, but they do on TV and nobody complains. How much latitude do you think there is? How best would you set this up? Welcome your thoughts!
