(From the publisher):
When heiress Anna Poritzky Claddington is unglamorously shot dead during a Fourth of July fireworks display near her glitzy mansion overlooking the Pacific, everyone knows the gardener did it. Observers swear they saw Inocencio Espinal toss the gun into the ocean. Moreover, the man is a hotheaded communist with a nasty attitude. Clearly, Inocencio is guilty.
Enter ace defense attorney Bomber Hanson, whose ego and courtroom finesse delight in impossible cases. Bomber's much-put-upon investigator son, Tod, digs deep into the shady, manipulative world of "Madame" and discovers a secret link to a very big political fish in a dirty, motive-strewn pond. Along the way, he thrills to another brush with everlasting love while brilliant, larger-than-life Bomber prepares to make mincemeat out of an airtight case — and save the day, once more.
