9780030085147: Under the Bright Lights

From the author of GIVE US A KISS and THE ONES YOU DO, a crime thriller which sees the death of a prominent black councilman whose murder is disguised as a bungled burglary. For detective Rene Shade the case seems too simple, so he follows a trail which leads to corruption, betrayal and more murder.

From the Back Cover:

Jewel Cobb had come to St.Bruno to climb on the big city gravy train. His cousin Duncan set little Jewel up to do the killing. The boy was hillbilly raw but country rough, and pleasingly expendable.

It seemed a simple enough case for the authorities. Too bad the dead man was a prominent black city council man. But for the police detective Rene Shade it all looked too neat. Shade takes on city hall as he follows a twisting trail through the sleazy streets of the Cajun quarter into the murky swamps and bayous that ring the city. It is a trail that leads to corruption and yet more murder.

'A writer with a special talent. His brooding first novel is as steamy as the bayou country that is its setting ... a tale of corrupt politics and violent racital tensions ... a chilling chase through a treacherous swamp of leeches and cottonmouths ... '
