"Strong science fiction romantic mystery"
In 2104 Chicago, all the evidence points towards Certified
Retribution Specialist Angel Baker as the killer of the
mayor's son and her best friend retributionist Roy Liebman.
QED Director Lenten William Townsend arrests Angel. She
knows she must rely on herself to prove her innocence and
hopefully to catch the real culprit who has framed her.
Angel believes she might have an ally in Chicago Police
Detective Ricuccio Marco. However, she quickly revises her
opinion even as she is very attracted to him as his behavior
seems to be more towards nailing her for the homicide.
Deciding to go back to her original plan of sleuthing alone,
Angel begins digging for evidence that will affirm she is
innocent; Ric tries to keep an eye on her allegedly as part
of his job, but he knows deep in his heart the reason is to
keep her safe.
TOUCH OF THE WHITE TIGER, the sequel to the delightful KISS
OF THE BLUE ANGEL, is a strong science fiction romantic
mystery. The setting is terrifically described as Chicago is
a twenty-second century NRA fantasy with guns so prevalent
that it makes the Wild West look like a rodeo. The
action-packed story line grips the audience with several
intriguing twists, but like Angel readers will be somewhat
confused by where Ric stands in her quest to prove her
innocence. Similar in tone to the great Eve Dallas police
procedurals, fans of three sub-genres will enjoy this strong
