The victim was young, lovely and seduced by the wrong man…

Mere hours before her wedding, the fiancée of real estate mogul JP Stratton is found strangled in her penthouse. New Orleans homicide detective Charlotte "Charlie" Le Blanc views the crime scene, finding a black silk stocking draped casually beside the body—a chilling calling card from the killer.

The dramatic clue leads Charlie to a world of privilege and wealth, and before long she singles out a suspect whose identity creates a furor in the city: Cole Stratton, JP's estranged son. But what she doesn't know is that Cole has been set up, and while she sets out to prove his guilt a real killer is on the loose—a man who now has Charlie in his sights, a man with yet another black silk stocking.

    Hot New Orleans suspense!

    When seasoned New Orleans Detective Charlotte ¿Charlie¿ LeBlanc is called to the scene of the City¿s latest homicide, she isn¿t disturbed by the murder scene until she notices the one silk stocking left next to the victim¿s posed body. Charlie¿s sister was murdered six years prior, her body left in the very same manner, posed after death with a single black silk stocking placed next to her lifeless body. Charlie found her sister¿s body and has dedicated her life to finding the person responsible and seeing that justice is served. As the list of suspects grows to include most of the immediate family of the latest victim¿s fiancé, Charlie finds herself drawn to Cole Stratton, the estranged son of the fiancé. Cole Stratton immediately admired the beautiful, determined detective, despite her tenacity in questioning him and his siblings. Knowing that Charlie¿s life was touched by the same brutal violence as his father¿s fiancée helps him understand her devoted resolve in pursuing this killer. Cole is terribly attracted to Charlie, and is equally determined to pursue a relationship with her, but first he must convince her that he is not the killer. BLACK SILK is a wonderfully written book with rich descriptions of the sights, sounds and flavors of New Orleans. Charlie and Cole are intelligent characters and are intensely passionate in their desire for one another. Secondary characters play an integral role in this book and a budding relationship between Charlie¿s remaining sister and her partner is refreshing. Just as you would expect from Metsy Hingle, BLACK SILK is filled with wonderful romance, exciting suspense and heartfelt emotion. COURTESY LAURIE/ROMANCE JUNKIES

    intriguing police procedural romance

    New Orleans Detective Charlotte ¿Charlie¿ LeBlanc joined the force a little over five years ago when an unknown assailant got away with murdering her sister Emily. The killer remains at lodge with no clues forthcoming. Her partner Vince Kossik calls Charlie while she leaves yellow M&Ms at Emily gravesite as she always has on her late sister¿s birthday. A homicide similar to the strangulation death of Emily has occurred. --- The victim Francesca Hill was to marry wealthy realtor J.P. Stratton. The crime scene points to someone who knew the victim committed a planned non-passionate murder. The two detectives soon look at who in the wedding party had a motivation to kill Francesca. The evidence points towards two of Stratton¿s adult children, Cole and Holly, as each had a public dispute with the deceased. Complicating the case, Charlie is attracted by the prime suspect Cole, who also might have killed her sister. --- BLACK SILK is an intriguing police procedural romance with the added spin of having the lead detective and the prime suspect falling in love. The story line is action-packed, but in many ways driven by the demons that haunt Charlie who chides herself for not protecting her sibling and for failing to uncover the identity of her killer. A secondary romantic subplot augments this exhilarating romantic suspense in which fans will wonder if Cole is a killer, a lover, or both. --- Harriet Klausner
