(From the publisher):
A murdered millionaire, several wealthy prime suspects prepared to defend themselves at any cost, a homicide commander determined not to ruffle any important feathers, and a chief of police with a history of appeasing the power elite in the District of Columbia all make Murder On the Gold Coast a wonderful read. Readers of mystery fiction are usually comforted by the notion that crime doesn't pay; that the good are rewarded for their virtue; and that the bad are punished for their wickedness. However, Barbara Fleming's second offering in the Matthew Alexander Mystery Series questions readers' beliefs about good and evil, crime and punishment, and who pays the piper when the final account is taken. Her smart, strong-willed, fearless young hero, Lieutenant Matthew Alexander, takes the reader on a marvelous journey as he solves the Murder on the Gold Coast in his usual brash, in-your-face style. His investigative skills are truly tested as he tries to solve the homicide of one of the District of Columbia's richest real estate developers in the home of the detective's former girlfriend.
