About the Book

In Flamingo Desires Laureen Metcalf, an African American journalist, uncovers a seventeen-million-dollar scandal in the politics of suburbia. Then one of the guilty politicians, Tom Flynn, is found dead in his office. Laureen stands to be nominated for a Pulitzer Prize, but she needs to find out if Flynn's death was a suicide or something else. Her secret informer, the suave political leader Frank Van Dam, once her boyfriend in high school, might have been using her to get at Flynn. Or maybe he'd just been trying to win her back. The man is a player, who crosses racial lines with ease, and is now having an affair with the beautiful Rochelle Davis, President of the Council on Racial Matters. It appears that this woman may have wanted to have Flynn murdered for hiding the money that should have come to her and Van Dam! Along the way, two more deaths pose serious questions; and now Laureen must try hard to maintain her sanity in a world spinning out of control on the force of illicit desire--something she herself is not immune to. Her only consolation comes in the person of Sonny Anzalone, a whimsical gay acting teacher, who thinks he can help solve her problem. Fascinating characters carry the plot of this mystery, written with a touch of satire, humor, and subtle psychology.
