Award-winning author Chuck Greaves returns with the rollicking sequel to his acclaimed debut novel, Hush Money.
US Senate candidate Warren Burkett has a history of marital infidelity. Three weeks before Election Day, Burkett comes to the aid of a beautiful green-eyed lady, only to find himself alone and naked in a stranger’s home from which a priceless painting is missing. As the resulting scandal threatens to tilt the election, the painting turns up in a most unexpected place—and so does a dead body. Hired to defend Burkett and unravel the deepening mystery, Jack MacTaggart must traverse a minefield of ruthless politicians, felonious art dealers, swarming paparazzi, the amorous wife of Burkett’s billionaire opponent, her mobbed-up brother, and a district attorney with an old score to settle. With the electoral clock ticking and the press following his every move, Jack’s investigation leads him on a roller-coaster ride through the lofty heights and gritty depths of Southern California, lending new meaning to the adage that all’s fair in love and politics.
“In Green-Eyed Lady, his sequel to Hush Money, Chuck Greaves has the recipe for a sure-fire hit: several dead bodies, two politicians short on good sense and willing to do anything, one stolen masterpiece, one political scandal…then two, the timer counting down to a critical election, and Jack MacTaggart—a lawyer with a heart, a conscience, a wry sense of humor, and steel balls—who loves to turn up the heat…and voila, a tasty dish you’ll want to consume in one sitting.”--Deborah Coonts, author of So Damn Lucky
