Author(s): 

Journalist Maggie works against the colorful backdrop of San Francisco as she takes on another case that looks impossible to solve. Enhanced by Peterson’s knowledge of her subject and her flair for character development, this exciting novel takes on a personality of its own.

Magazine editor Maggie Fiori gets involved when asked to look into the case of Travis Gifford, who’s sitting on Death Row. Convicted of murdering a wealthy socialite, he’s guilty according to the evidence. Maggie is reluctant to get involved. She asks Michael to come on board, so he’s following her every step of the way. It’s not an investigation, but research for a story, she says. But that story leads them to a BDSM club and the nightclub known as The Devil’s Interval. The jazz club is owned by Gifford’s mother, who pleads with Maggie for her help. Maggie finds suspects galore as she makes inroads into society at all levels. (PROSPECT PARK, Sep., 352 pp., $14.95)
