Description

Barbara Parker introduces one of the
most unforgettable female characters in suspense fiction: high-profile Miami
defense attorney C. J. Dunn.


C J. Dunn is an expert at spinning her
clients' image in the media. She is the perfect lawyer to deflect police
interest in Rick Slater, head of security for Bob Shelby, a US congressman from
Miami. Slater was seen at a South Beach party with the recently vanished Alana
Martin, and in election season, any hint of scandal could doom the congressman's
chances. C. J. has reasons not to like Slater's boss, but, if she succeeds,
friends of the congressman have assured her that they can arrange a spot for
her as a legal commentator on a national media outlet. For a woman living
alone, with few close friends, a celebrity life does have its appeal.


But as the media close in, hounding
everyone connected to the case, C. J. finds connections she had never
anticipated. When Alana Martin is found dead and C. J.'s investigator
implicates Rick Slater, C. J. is slammed between the media and the need to
defend a client she no longer trusts. Then he delivers a bombshell: C. J.'s
daughter, Traci Willis, the child she gave up for adoption seventeen years before,
was a friend of Alana Martin's. Traci has information that could save Rick
Slater but at the same time could reveal a devastating secret that would put
C. J.'s career—and even her life—on the line.

      • source: AudioFile Magazine
      • content: Set in glitzy South Beach, Parker's novel about politicians, perversity, and porn is filled with sharp lawyers, sleazy senators, wicked developers, na•ve young Floridians, and macho heroes. Elisabeth Rodgers subtly and precisely renders the medley of personalities. Her portrayal of tough, sexy Defense Attorney C.J. Dunn lures listeners into the character's complicated lifestyle. Dunn is accused of influence-bartering for her role as a crime-show host. At the same time that she finds her job as a defense attorney in jeopardy, she is drawn more deeply into a murder investigation. Rodgers keeps the suspense taut and the characters clear as the narrative races to its conclusion. D.P.D. (c) AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine

        May 5, 2008
        This tantalizing novel of suspense from bestseller Parker (The Perfect Fake
        ), the first in a new series, introduces 37-year-old C.J. Dunn (formerly Charlotte Josephine Bryan), a flashy Miami criminal attorney. To get a better chance at hosting a new CNN show, Rich, Famous, and Deadly
        , C.J. accepts a client with celebrity connections, Rick Slater. Rick, chauffeur to a prominent Republican congressman, is a suspect in the disappearance and later murder of a young model, Alana Martin, last seen at a party in Miami Beach. Kylie Willis, a 17-year-old runaway who attended the party with Alana, may be able to help clear Rick, whose virility and no-nonsense attitude attracts C.J. To crack the case, C.J., who’s also a recovering alcoholic and recent widow, must face her troubled past. This thriller zings with rich subtext regarding dirty politics and the exploitation of young women “servicing” power players. 5-city author tour.
