Description
"PI Tess Monaghan is ecstatic to hear the news that business tycoon Gerard 'Wink' Wynkowski wants to bring pro-basketball back to Baltimore. But when Wink's checkered past--which runs the gamut from domestic abuse and compulsive gambling to armed robberies and even manslaughter--makes the front page of the Baltimore Beacon-Light, aka the 'Blight, his project is jeopardized. No one is more surprised at the exposé than the editors of the paper who were certain they killed the piece. Hoping to uncover who hacked into their computers, the newspaper hires Tess. But soon after the story on Wink runs, he's found asphyxiated in his garage with his cars engine running"--Page 4 of cover.
