Logan is hired by Hub Walker, Lt. The man convicted of her murder had just been put to death by lethal injection. The problem was that just before the sentence was carried out, he stated that the actual murderer was a close friend, whose integrity and reputation had suffered greatly as a result. Divorced at 23, Jolie is now Despite the fact that she is no longer employed, she tries to find out whatever she can about the murder through her contacts at the police department and otherwise, to little avail. But then some information comes her way, and she determines to try to find the story behind the murder of her friend, with no idea where or to whom it will lead.
Threats start to come her way as well to those who have been assisting her in her investigation. She soon learns more than she had bargained for, as some old secrets come to light, as well as hints at corruption at the highest level, with unexpected sources being a couple of women who were very close to the great man, and one enigmatic old-world gentleman keeping long-held secrets. The tale initially proceeds at a pace befitting the deep South, but soon amps up that pace with the mounting suspense of trying to find a killer, taking unexpected twists and turns in the process.
Not when it comes to the past. Just different versions of it. I was thoroughly intrigued by Jolie and her tale, and her depiction of the old and new South including the old family recipe for mint juleps! Scott will take her next. And her protagonist, Josie Corsino, is an LAPD captain, trying to juggle that demanding job with that of wife and mother, and not always succeeding. In the opening pages, Kyle Richards, a sergeant Josie had appointed to supervise a burglary task force in Hollywood division, is involved in a fatal shooting.
When it is discovered that the dead man was a fellow police officer, after over 20 years on the job, Kyle is faced with a hearing and a possible suspension until it can be proven that it was a justified shooting. Added to the fact that the dead cop was a black man, and Richards white, the political implications make every aspect of the investigation more difficult.
Things only get more complex when another killing occurs, and Josie believes the two events are connected. A good reputation was difficult to tarnish; a bad reputation whether it was deserved or not was indelible. This was a well-plotted tale. From the publisher. Ex—Buddhist monk and ex—LAPD officer turned private eye Tenzing Norbu is back with a new case, a new love, and a whole new set of problems in this fresh installment in The Tenzing Norbu Mystery series. Cases and crises start to collide.

Tell me about the trip leaders. Donna Morris has lived in Paris for the last eleven years. Her company, Best Friend in Paris, designs personal itineraries for people coming to the city.
She helps people learn to navigate Paris and find where their special interests are hidden. She speaks fluent French and knows Paris and its environs intimately. Sheila Campbell of Wild Blue Yonder has been organizing informal groups of travelers for years — at first on hiking trips in France, England, Italy and Spain.
She lives in Washington, DC, where she was a docent at the National Gallery of Art for many years — but she spends a couple of months a year in France and knows Paris well. What is the Hotel Relais Monceau like? Most Americans, when they come to Paris, stay on the Left Bank.
The bedrooms are simply furnished, but of a nice size by European standards. Windows open to the air, with classic French shutters to close at night for privacy and quiet. The bathrooms have double basins, plus a tub and shower and wooden floors. We usually see few Americans at the hotel; most of the clientele are French or European.
But the hotel staff speak English and are terrifically friendly and helpful. Like many French hotels, the Relais Monceau offers a wide selection of croissants, rolls and pastries, cheeses, cold cuts, hard-boiled eggs, fruit, cereal, French yogurt and so on. But — unlike many continental hotels — they also have scrambled eggs and bacon or sausage and fresh-squeezed orange juice every day.
And, of course, coffee, tea, other juices, still or sparkling water and milk. Is there internet access at the hotel? Yes, free wifi comes with your room. What will the weather be like? May in Paris is just plain unpredictable. We expect cool days and nights — temperatures running from the 50s — high 60s. The weather can vary wildly from year to year, so our advice is to come prepared for just about anything. Bring clothes suited for warm weather, an umbrella, a jacket and — most important of all — very comfortable walking shoes. What to wear? Like most cities these days, people wear just about anything during the day in Paris.
Jeans are fine. Typically, wearing white or pale-colored running shoes identifies you as an American tourist — but let comfort rule your choices. Restaurants that accept tour groups are usually the last places we want to eat. And there are just so many delicious choices for meals in Paris that we want everyone to be free to eat where and when they want.
One day you might eat a sandwich for lunch, looking out toward the Eiffel Tower; or you might choose to browse the food stalls at one of the many street markets.
You are here
Alternatively, we often make lunch the biggest meal of the day, maybe even eating at a restaurant that would be too pricey at night. Can you help me figure out what to eat? Plus, these days, many places offer audioguides where we can choose which information and how much we want to listen to. We can give you directions to the starting point of any of their tours. Is it safe to walk around by myself at night?
As in any city, it makes sense to be aware of your surroundings after dark. What you do have to watch out for in Paris is pickpockets wherever there are lots of tourists.

These thieves are wily, so we recommend that you leave most of your money, credit cards and passport in the safe in your room, just taking with you what you need for one day. A handbag that you can sling over your shoulder and tuck high under your arm with a good zipper works better than bags with long straps that dangle below your waist.
To avoid becoming a target, we suggest that in the Metro you move away from the doors, avoid chatting loudly in English, and sit down if you can. Can I stay there? Plus, staying elsewhere would make getting to the evening wine and planning meetings difficult. Can they come along with us? But you can bring them to our evening get-togethers.

If I want to stay longer than six days, can you arrange that? You can stay on at the hotel at your own payment, although our trip will be over.
