Baltimore BluesBook - 2007
Unemployed journalist Tess Monaghan accepts an assignment from a suspected killer who would have her engage in unorthodox snooping in order to clear his name.
In a city where someone is murdered almost every day, attorney Michael Abramowitz's death should be just another statistic. But the slain lawyer's notoriety—and his taste for illicit midday trysts—makes the case front-page news in every local paper except the Star, which crashed and burned before Abramowitz did.
A former Star reporter who knows every inch of this town—from historic Fort McHenry to the crumbling projects of Cherry Hill—now-unemployed journalist Tess Monaghan also knows the primary suspect: cuckolded fiancé Darryl "Rock" Paxton. The time is ripe for a career move, so when rowing buddy Rock wants to hire her to do some unorthodox snooping to help clear his name, Tess agrees. But there are lethal secrets hiding in the Charm City shadows. And Tess's own name could end up on the ever-expanding list of Baltimore dead.
A tenth anniversary edition of the author's first novel finds an unemployed journalist accepting an assignment from a suspected killer who would have her engage in unorthodox snooping in order to clear his name. By the author of By a Spider's Thread. 75,000 first printing.
