About this title

Synopsis:

On the banks of the Truxton River lies Gryphon's Gate, a gated community built by Henry Drysdale where the rich and privileged live, work and play. Tempers flare when Henry's ex- decides to develop the adjoining land and environmentalists, developers, residents and the media clash. Then the violence turns ugly--a dead body is found on the golf course and Detective Diane Robards is called in to investigate. Diane's efforts are thwarted at every turn and as she uncovers the secrets behind the serene facade of Gryphon's Gate, she races against the clock to unmask a ruthless killer.

From the Back Cover:

Thirteen award-winning female mystery and crime writers present an exciting, clever, and suspenseful serial mystery in the tradition of Naked Came the Phoenix and Naked Came the Manatee. Edited by award-winning author Marcia Talley, I'd Kill for That has an origjnal storyline, an unforgettable colorful cast of characters-and exhibits the extraordinary talent behind some of the best authors today.

WHEN DEALING WITH THE RICH...
On the banks of the scenic Truxton River, nestled in rolling woodlands just minutes away from our nation's capital, lies Gryphon Gate, a premier gated community. But tempers flare and tension grows when someone decides to build a 300-unit condominium development on an adjoining tract of land.

BE CAREFUL WHO YOU CROSS.
The Gryphon Gate town meeting disintegrates into a free-for-all as environmentalists, developers, residents and the media clash. Then the violence turns even uglier-a body is discovered lying face down in a sandtrap off the sixth hole. Called in to head the investigation, Police Captain Diane Robards is thwarted at every turn as she discovers that behind the elaborate landscaping and elegant doorways, in the privacy of bedrooms, yachts' cabins, clubrooms, and saunas, lie closely guarded secrets...

"Each chapter flows smoothly into the next so that it feels like one author wrote this tale. Marcia Talley and her dozen cohorts deserve kudos for this successful project."
