About this ebook

It’s two weeks before Halloween and the tricks have already begun in wacky Berkeley, California, when a woman dressed as a China doll is found twisted, bloodied, and dying against a broken mailbox outside the city’s grandest mansion. Turns out she's the socialite wife of a local predatory developer who challenges Clari Drake, former TV star turned has-been reporter, to find the killer. The kinky clues pile up like a basket of bad candy. An old newsroom nemesis, hashish-smoking homeless activists, and nutball neighbors pull back the curtain on the sexual exploits of wealthy Russell Street, forcing Clari to pursue a spanking good story into the darkest corners of the city everyone loves to laugh at. Join Clari Drake on deadline as she navigates the intersection of lust, betrayal, and … podiatry … in the People’s Republic.

Laura Novak

I spent 30 years as a news reporter in television, radio, and print … including years reporting for The New York Times on business, arts, and health.  While my protagonist, Clari Drake, might not be up to any good, I try to be, especially when at work in the Berkeley Men’s Shelter every month.  If I’m not writing with a cat nearby, I am usually swimming or recycling anything in my path.
