In just three Tamara Hayle mysteries, Valerie Wilson Wesley has created one of the most memorable private investigators to hit urban streets in years. As the Ft. Lauderdale Sun-Sentinel has proclaimed, "Tamara continues to emerge as a strong, decisive woman."
When the grieving mother of a slain hoodlum begs the Newark p.i. to look into the unsolved murder, Tamara initially refuses, but then discovers a connection between the victim and her late policeman brother. Her search for the truth takes Tamara from the grittiest sections of the city to its middle class neighborhoods where family secrets are preserved at any cost. However, as the case creeps into her personal life, Tamara learns that when it comes to murder--there is no hiding place.

This engaging treat for mystery fans, the fourth outing for black private eye Tamara Hayle, begins with Hayle getting mugged as she leaves her office one night. She has just $6.50, and her car is a rust-eaten Volkswagen. But the senselessness of the crime troubles her less than the fact that the teenager holding the gun seems familiar. Later, Tamara discovers why: he's the son of Shawn Raymond, the man her police-officer brother mentored years ago. Now Shawn has been murdered and, unsure she is doing the right thing, Tamara tells Shawn's mother she'll try to find the killer. She has no choice: her brother committed suicide years ago, and she understands that it may have affected Shawn as much as it did her.About the Author:
