Summary :

Since their last appearance, the San Francisco Bay Area duo has been through some changes. First Rosie, then Jake left Oakland for Marin County, north of the Golden Gate. Jake has never bothered to get his private eye license--but Rosie did, and now he's working for her. Happily for readers, their relationship is still solid. "Their respect for each other's privacy and integrity is so deeply ingrained that they are careful with their affection, would not quite call it love, and so their wisecracking takes on a softened, humane edge."--San Francisco Chronicle

Jake and Rosie's latest poker-titled case, Royal Flush, calls on all their strength and commitment to one another, as they must go underground to infiltrate a dangerous neo-Nazi group. On their skill and intelligence depend the life of a misguided but essentially good kid and possibly the lives of several political assassination targets. But the gang's incompetence may be even more deadly than their megalomaniac plans. Today's news headlines echo in Royal Flush: violent youth, pop culture and technology, easy availability of weapons, extremist ravings, and dissemination of hatred for outsiders.

Blurbs:
  • "Jake and Rosie are a royal pleasure! I'm a great fan of Shelley Singer, but in this one she really ups the ante--a scary story of a decent kid caught up in a bigger, nastier game than he could ever have envisioned." Julie Smith
  • "I didn't realize how much I missed Jake and Rosie until I opened Royal Flush and experienced the joy of a reunion with old and dear friends. This book is by far the best thing Shelley Singer had ever written, and for one of my favorite writers, that's saying a lot!" Richard A. Lupoff
  • "one of the nicer guys in the private eye business, who operates in a relaxed, casual style without need for macho posturing" Washington Post
