Still working from a distressed office on Hollywood Boulevard, with ex-prostitute and now legal secretary Lupe Ramos, Whitney Logan is summoned to the LA Criminal Courts Building to defend Tony Red Wolf against one of Division 40 s lesser crimes drunk and disorderly. But early the next morning, Whitney stands face-to-face with Tony Red Wolf over a trash can that contains the severed head of Shirley Yellowbird on top of a pile of dismembered body parts. Tony s only explanation he had a vision of the murder. Realizing that she may be dealing with a psychopath, but knowing that if Tony is arrested he ll be assigned a more high-profile attorney, Whitney reluctantly agrees to wait 48 hours before surrendering her client in order to collect evidence that may exonerate him. Whitney may have finally found her chance to be a hotshot criminal attorney. Or be disbarred. Or end up in a trash can like Shirley Yellowbird. From an occult shop in Hollywood, to a Indian bar where even half-breeds are unwelcome, to a fabled ghost hotel in Los Angeles, where a medicine man is said to hold all the secrets...Whitney and Lupe are drawn into a mystery so dense that even the edges of reality itself become uncertain.

About the Author:

Douglas Anne Munson was born in Crossville, Tennessee on February 17, 1948. Her childhood was spent moving from town to town before her family finally settled in southern California. Douglas attended the University of New Mexico, where she majored in Latin American studies. She then attended the UCLA school of Law and became an attorney. In 1990, Douglas published a novel called El Niņo, then went on to publish two mystery novels under the name of Mercedes Lambert--Dogtown in 1991 and Soultown in 1996 featuring attorney-turned-sleuth, Whitney Logan and her adversarial ally, Carmen. After leaving the law profession, Douglas moved to the Czech Republic, where she was diagnosed with a return of the cancer she had successfully fought in the late 1980s. Douglas returned to the United States in 2001, and died on December 22, 2003 at a hospital in Norwalk, Connecticut.

From Publishers Weekly:

Lambert's powerful third Whitney Logan novel (after 1996's Soultown and 1991's Dogtown) concludes the story of the troubled Los Angeles attorney. Having scrambled for years to get her career off the ground, Logan, thwarted by drink and depression, becomes the court-appointed lawyer for Tony Red Wolf, recently arrested on misdemeanor charges. Logan finds him surly and attractive, and soon has him out on bail. That evening he calls her to a meeting place where he shows her the butchered body of one of his female friends, claiming to have nothing to do with the murder. Unsure whether to believe him, Logan delves into the little-examined subculture of Native Americans living in Los Angeles while slipping ever further into her own dark world of personal demons. With its memorable characters, sharp dialogue and ever-increasing mood of uncertainty, fear and menace, the narrative builds to a startling and fantastical conclusion. Lambert was the pseudonym of Douglas Anne Munson (1948–2003), whose tragic story her literary executor describes in an afterword. Michael Connelly provides an appreciative introduction. (Aug.)
