Plain Brown Wrapper

(2001)
(A book in the Alex Powell series)
A novel by

 
African-American reporter Alex Powell has the kind of curiosity that tends to get a nosy girl in big trouble. Luckily, she also has the wit and wiles to get out of it. But when Alex finds her boss, Everett Carson, dead at a black journalists' conference, she finds herself caught in a situation far nastier than normal ... and in grave danger.

At least she's not alone. Fellow journalist and old friend Paul Butler is determined to accompany Alex on her investigation into who killed Ev and why. The trail is leading Alex and Paul from California to D.C., New York, and the competitive social whirl of Martha's Vineyard ... and into a relationship well beyond "friend." But when the truth about the murder of a man as hated as he was revered comes to light, all that -- and everything else -- could end for Alex Powell in a devastating instant.
