A Truman Kicklighter Mystery
HarperCollins, March 1997
When Jackleen Canaday’s newly bought dream machine–an ’88 Corvette T-top–turns out to be a lemon, senior sleuth Truman Kicklighter comes to her aid. As they head for the dealership, they’re spoiling for a fight but they’re completely unprepared for what they find: the corpse of the man who sold Jackleen her clunker. More than his passion for justice drives Truman to unmask the killer–the cops suspect Jackleen of murder. Truman goes undercover at the devious dealership and discovers a bloody trail of insurance fraud and drug money. That trail could lead him to the great showroom in the sky.
