SMARTLY WRITTEN AND CLEVERLY PLOTTED WITH A NIFTY SURPRISE ENDING... When an Armani-clad corpse turns up in the woods, crime reporter Nichelle Clarke smells a scoop. A little digging, and Nichelle uncovers a web of corruption that stretches all the way to Washington, D.C. Politics. Murder. And a dead lobbyist. It's everything Nichelle's ever dreamed of. The cops are playing it close, the feds even closer, and Nichelle's afraid her boss will assign the story to the political desk any day. Richmond's new ATF SuperCop makes an arrest before she can say "Louboutin," but Nichelle's gut says he's got the wrong guy. Her sexy Mafia boss friend warns her off the case, her TV rival is hot on her designer heels, an ambitious copy editor wants her beat, and victims are piling up faster than she can track them down. As Nichelle zeroes in on the truth, it'll take some fancy footwork to nab this headline before the killer nabs her. Praise for BURIED LEADS: "Mafia hotties, corrupt politicians, old flames and murder. Buried Leads, LynDee Walker's latest adventure featuring intrepid crime reporter Nichelle Clarke, propels the reader on a wild ride through Richmond, Virginia, as Clarke ducks bullets and unmasks criminals, all this in her incisive exposes and her aubergine Manolo Blahniks. A smart and sassy heroine." - Patricia Smiley, Bestselling Author of Cool Cache "Intrepid reporter Nichelle Clarke is back again, tracking down a killer, sniffing out political corruption, and juggling studmuffin boyfriends-all in impossibly high heels. Very smartly written and cleverly plotted, with a nifty surprise ending. Another winner from author LynDee Walker " - Laura Levine, Author of the Jaine Austen Mystery Series "A must read for any mystery fan. I loved Front Page Fatality, but Buried Leads may be my favorite in the series to date. If you're a fan of mysteries or contemplating trying a new genre, I highly recommend Buried Leads. Five stars " - Literary, etc. "It's Walker's real life experience as a working journalist that makes this enjoyable mystery stand out. The details of newsroom machinations are every bit as complicated as the tangled puzzle that her sleuth must solve." - New York Times Bestselling Author Lisa Brackmann Books in the Headlines in High Heels Humorous Mystery Series: FRONT PAGE FATALITY (#1) BURIED LEADS (#2) DATELINE MEMPHIS (Novella following BURIED LEADS featured in HEARTACHE MOTEL) On Sale December 2013 Part of the Henery Press Mystery Series Collection, if you like one, you'll probably like them all...
