Freelance Western writer Taggart Roper (more free than lance lately) lives in a rusting trailer in a seedy Tulsa suburb with his dog Harry. Sometimes Roper takes on not-quite-legal odd jobs to pay the bills, but the young Sarah Lawrence student who interrupts his morning harmonica practice hires him for the oddest job yet.
Looking into a recently murdered local prostitute's past leads Roper straight to the estate of a rich and famous television evangelist. But what was the connection between the preacher and the prostitute? What does the reverend's mother know, behind her steely mask of propriety and piety? And why does a group of born-again karate freaks and body builders want to scare Roper off the case? Roper doesn't know what to think, but with the help of his Cherokee lover Rita Ninekiller and Wiley Harmon, the crookedest cop on the Tulsa PD, he's going to find out - or become the killer's next victim.

From Publishers Weekly:

Freelance writer Taggert Roper does informal investigating to keep himself in liquor and his dog in kibble. The same afternoon that he gets a rejection slip for his literary western novel, college student Amy Matson shows up, asking him to look into the affairs of her murdered mother. Lorene Matson worked as a prostitute but also had a mysterious source of income, her "insurance policy," which Amy hopes to cash in on. Tag figures that Lorene had a blackmail scheme going, and, indeed, finds that her personal papers contain a bombshell: Amy's father is televangelist Jack Redfield. But he can find no sign of blackmail or indication that Jack wanted to dispose of Lorene; he supports his daughter voluntarily. With some help from a pair of colorful friends, Rita Ninekiller, a newspaperwoman, and Wiley Harmon, a cop who is more proficient than strictly honest, Tag burrows into the lives of Jack and Lorene, discovering a secret darker than he ever imagined. By lacing this hard-boiled mystery with wry humor and delivering enough plot twists (including a second corpse) to grip the reader's interest, Sanders ( The Wild Blue and the Gray ) makes Roper's Tulsa, Okla., an entertaining place to spend a few hours.
