Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0312977085, Mass Market Paperback)

On tough, Washington, D.C., defense attorney Carole Ann Gibson's first day back at Jacaranda Estates, the multiracial housing complex in Los Angeles where she grew up, she is threatened by two young gangsters.
"Do not come another step closer to me!" Gibson says in her best withering courtroom voice. Their surprise was replaced by anger, which, in turn, was replaced by snarling hatred. Carole Ann thought it a pity, the ugliness of their expressions, since they could have been--should have been--such handsome young men. Both reminded her of actors. One resembled the gorgeous Jimmy Smits, and the other could have been the offspring of the elegant Edward James Olmos. She wanted to tell them that if they resembled such lovely, creative men, they should behave creatively instead of destructively. She also wanted to kill them.
The same dynamite combination of sexual energy and unbridled aggression that distinguished One Must Wait, Penny Mickelbury's first book about Gibson, from the rest of the female legal-eagle horde gives her second adventure an equally impressive charge. Slowly recovering from the murder of her husband and the near death of her best friend, C.A. (as she's known in the trenches) responds to a call for help from her mother, one of a shrinking group of old women under seige at Jacaranda. Once a bastion of racial harmony, the housing estate has turned into a battlefield that the LAPD can't--or won't--control. So it's up to C.A. and her own private army of ex-cops, lawyers, and feisty old folks to find out what's going on--and you'd better believe they succeed. Mickelbury has also written two good books about lesbian detective Gianna Maglione, Keeping Secrets and Night Songs, both of which are available in paperback. --Dick Adler
