The police immediately have a suspect in Jamal Deschamps, a young black man arrested at the scene with Maddie's ring in his pocket. Then the airtight case against him springs some big-time leaks - sending Nikki and a quirky team of homicide detectives scrambling to find the real killer, while an army of attorneys, spin doctors, crooked cops, and case-hardened gangstas starts working overtime to make the wheels of justice spin just the way they want. When Nikki finally gets a suspect whose guilt she can believe in - this time it's a famous African-American R & B diva - the case may already be doomed. From South Central homeboys in baggy pants to courthouse hitters in three-piece suits, The Trials of Nikki Hill captures men and women in the often chaotic pursuit of a thing called justice - and one particular woman courageously fighting her way through the system, with her career, her pride, and her life hanging in the balance
The talk show murders : a Billy Blessing novel by Al Roker( Book )

4 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 725 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Billy Blessing wasn't always a celebrity chef. He wasn't always a TV host. He wasn't always such a nice guy. He wasn't even always Billy Blessing. He's reminded of this when an ex-cop named Pine shows up at his hotel and reminds him of Billy Blanchard, a small-time con who nearly swindled Motown from Berry Gordy before doing a year in prison. His associates, though, did a lot more time, and a few of them have ended up murdered. Pine will keep this quiet...for a fee... Billy's in a tight spot that gets even tighter when Pine turns up dead. The cops don't suspect Billy, but that doesn't mean his past can't still come back to haunt him--or even get him killed as well. With blackmail abound, bodies adding up, a budding romance, and a television audience of millions, Billy is definitely in the glare of the brightest spotlight. Keeping his name clear is one challenge, keeping his head attached to his body is another, and Billy will have to rely on the very past he's trying to put behind him if he's going to survive, and move forward one and for all"--

Caught trying to run a scam on a shady Detroit businessman, Billy did time for his crimes, reinvented himself, and has successfully kept that part of his past covered up ever since. But when he and Eddie Patton, a nosy ex-cop with a long memory, are guests on a popular Chicago TV talk show, the off-camera chat turns to blackmail. And Patton winds up dead"--Page 2 of cover

Things were different in the 1960s: love was freer, morals were looser, protests were hotter, and America hadn't yet matured into the cynical, embittered country it is today. But some things were the same: a young man starting at the bottom at a popular magazine (Ogle, "Devoted to the Masculine Pleasure-Principle") could dream of rising through the ranks; greedy corporate bigwigs could conspire to milk their companies dry; and the solution to a problem could be summed up with one word: murder
