Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0986038849, Paperback)Suave, buttoned-down Alex Upchurch seems an odd match with his position as Assistant District Attorney of Galveston, a city some say is like the antique store on the north end that advertises “Mostly Junque, a Few Jewels.” But when a dead John Doe is discovered naked in the bedroom of Alex’s baronial mansion, District Attorney John Henry Davenport has to cover up the crime to save not only his able assistant but also to placate Alex’s mother, Honey Upchurch, whose money bought John Henry’s position. Figuring out who is dead and why proves almost as challenging as keeping that information from becoming known, especially when Alex is appointed to prosecute a former lover who knows all but tells nothing. Fortunately, Leon McAdoo, known as Miss Starlight because of a gossip column he (or she?) writes, is on hand to guide us through the maze of power, money, sex and corruption.
