From Kirkus Reviews:

New Orleans p.r. honcho Jack Lynch (Murphy's Fault), now trying to score positive media points for client Andrew Kwang, whose plans to purchase the defunct Riverbend Nuclear Power Plant and convert it into Kwang World Pictures headquarters has run afoul of Pearl Bergeron, representative of the Louisiana Film Commission- -is suddenly up to his press releases in trouble: Pearl is murdered, and Lynch's client shapes up as the number one suspect. And no wonder: Kwang and Pearl had a major argument over dinner; Pearl's late husband, director Harry McMillan, was murdered on a Kwang film location (an unsolved case); and Pearl's indulgent daddy is the state governor, who wants answers now. But was Pearl's death caused by Kwang, or was it related to the radiation-spoiled p.r. film shot by Lois, a sexy freelancer who spoon-feeds Lynch clues-- or just possibly red herrings. Past and present crimes overlap before Lynch, who again loses a girlfriend to death, sorts through the emotional debris, effects a nifty helicopter rescue, and redeems his client. Workmanlike plotting and prose--enlivened only by Lynch's relationship with his acerbic, bored secretary Maud. -- Copyright ©1991, Kirkus Associates, LP. All rights reserved.

From Publishers Weekly:

The head of a sleazy international film studio becomes tangled in corrupt Louisiana politics in Womack's fine second mystery to feature public relations expert Jack Lynch. When Pearl Bergeron, the head of Louisiana's state film commission and the governor's daughter, challenges millionaire filmmaker Andrew Kwang's bid to turn a failed nuclear plant outside New Orleans into a major studio, Kwang calls on Lynch for help. Kwang becomes a suspect when Bergeron is found beaten to death, so Lynch simultaneously investigates the victim's unsavory lifestyle while employing damage-control tactics for his cool, calculating client. Tutored in film world mores by cinematographer Lois Finlayson, the first person for whom he has any feeling since the murder of an earlier love (in Murphy's Fault ), Lynch is threatened himself . He persists in his quest and uncovers a curious connection--another death--between Kwang and Bergeron. Womack's New Orleans and his cast are strong presences here, although his plot is unfortunately not up to the standard set in his previous book.
