From the Inside Flap:

GHOSTTOWN 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.
