A Texas Mystery
By LB Cobb
Virginia Rodriguez is a tough young
Hispanic woman with an even tougher job. She is scratching out a
living as the Assistant District Attorney in Bayou City, Texas.
As a single mother, she is about to take a well-deserved vacation
and watch her only son graduate from high school.
last thing she needs is to be assigned to the case of Federal Prosecutor
Stuart Fullerton. Fullerton has stepped on some mighty big toes
in Washington, DC and has now turned up dead in a hotel room. His
wife was found standing over him with the murder weapon and appears
to be the scorned woman.
Easy as pie. Open and shut case. Except
that some people in high places want this case solved a little too
quickly and Virginia realizes that Ms. Fullerton may indeed be innocent.
If she digs too deeply into this one, Virginia's career may be on
the line. If she doesn't, another young woman's life may be on the
story moves along quickly with many supporting characters that are
equally engrossing. Just when the reader thinks they have the mystery
solved, another monkey wrench is thrown into the mix. It was also
very satisfying having a main character that was not only female
but a minority, a strong woman with a lot of the same problems many
single mothers face each day.
