Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0977485218, Paperback)The Mayor¿s Wife Wore Sapphires reveals the secret life of 36-year-old Indigo Tate. From all outward appearances, she is educated, ambitious, and drop-dead gorgeous, but she is also stuck in the ghetto. This half-equipped little African American princess has one ambition¿to get out. She longs to hang out with the Beverly Hills ¿who who¿s¿, but the charter requires her husband to live in the city he serves, Compton, California. Every day, crack cocaine, violence and drive-bys grow more threatening. When her husband finds nearly a million dollars missing from his celebrated training program for the poor, he is assassinated. Indigo¿s world comes crashing down. She becomes obsessed with bringing his assassin to justice. That move thrusts her into a bitter political war that makes Viet Nam pale by comparison. Yet, she defends her life and her city against the powerful enemy with the only weapon she owns¿her woman¿s intuition.
