In the Game (#2)
|Series:||Virginia Kelly Mystery|
Ginny and Bev.
Always there for each other - friends since business school, where their black faces were lost in a sea of white. As Ginny observes, "Lovers don't last but friends can be forever."
But now Bev is in trouble. Her lover's bullet-riddled body has been found behind a Chicago lesbian bar. The police suspect a hate crime, but Ginny, privy to her own information about the murdered Kelsey, thinks otherwise.
Threading her nimble way through the cultural byways and poliics of the lesbian society she knows, Ginny asks a lot of questions about Kelsey's death, but finds few answers. Just who is the mysterious "other woman" in Kelsey's life? And is it true that Kelsey was about to be arrested for embezzlement?
Meanwhile, Ginny has acquired a thorny problem of her own. A brief fling with a high-powered lawyer has turned into obsession, and threatens Ginny's long-term relationship.
A suicide, another murder - and Ginny begins to suspect that she is being cast as the next victim...
In The Game is sharp, funny, and on the mark - the auspicious debut of a new Black writer who brings us what we have eagerly awaited - fresh perspective on today's diverse lesbian community.
