Overview

Baxter residents fear upheaval when a regional tire plant announces it's coming to Baxter. Rumor says mayor Charlie Kirby's signature on the deal was influenced by an affair with the tire company's corporate attorney - who dies suddenly after the agreement is finalized. Charlie, a pillar of the community and a father of seven, faces the court of public opinion and the biggest moral dilemma of his life. Meanwhile, newspaper editor Ellen Jones goes looking for a feature story, collides with the brick wall of the late attorney's past - and is stalked by someone pursuing the same track!

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
The fifth and final entry in Herman's"Baxter" series (after High Stakes) centers on the violent death of Sheila Paxton, a corporate attorney who convinced Charlie Kirby, mayor of Baxter, to allow the Thompson Tire Corporation to move there despite many citizens' objections. Suspicions arise when a classmate of Charlie's 12-year-old son claims to have seen Charlie kissing Sheila. When Charlie's wife, Marlene, finds out, she shuts down emotionally and tells him that their marriage is finished. As the gossip escalates, newspaper editor Ellen Jones investigates and finds, amid more damning evidence against Charlie, the truth behind Sheila's murder. At the same time, Ellen's own marriage is tested when her husband asks her to leave Baxter for good. Herman's latest is a reasonably good thriller if a bit farfetched. Purchase where the series is popular. Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
