When publisher Everett Carson is found murdered at the National Association of Black Journalists Conference, it's up to reporter Alex Powell to solve the mystery before she becomes the murderer's next victim. Narrator Robin Miles's stellar presentation of the variety of African-American characters in this novel is a linguistic revelation of the range and extent of the black diaspora. Miles is a tour de force as an elderly Southern black woman, a tony white Beverly Hills matron, a British-educated African businessman, and a Cuban restaurateur. This contemporary mystery reveals in manners and style the world of the upper echelons of African-American society. P.R. (c) AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/ NOV 03]
