Publisher Comments:

Jane Lawless is at her wits end keeping her Minneapolis restaurants running while volunteering on her fathers campaign for governor. With an eleven-point lead, the race is Ray Lawlesss to lose, but all that changes when his rival posts a list of violent criminals that are back on the streets early, thanks to Rays work during his career as a defense lawyer.

Corey Hodge is one of the convicts that took Rays advice to plead guilty for a crime that he swears he didnt commit. Bitter from time served, revenge lurks in the back of his mind. Then one of Rays young campaign volunteers is killed, and with the murder mirroring the crime Corey was convicted of, Jane has to bring the killer to justice to save her fathers political career and to keep Corey from going to prison again.

The high stakes and political intrigue that fuel Sweet Poison, the latest in Lambda and Minnesota Book Award--winning author Ellen Harts absorbing Jane Lawless series, make for an intense mystery of ambition and obsession.

Review:

"In the juicy 16th Jane Lawless mystery (after 2007's The Mortal Groove), the lesbian restaurateur worries about her father Ray's upcoming bid for governor of Minnesota. Corey Hodge, a convicted rapist Ray once defended in court, has just been released from prison. Nursing a grudge, he volunteers at Ray's campaign headquarters until his identity is exposed. Life gets more intense after Corey becomes a suspect in the murder of one of Ray's top volunteers, Charity Miller. Charity was being stalked by her ex-boyfriend, who may have committed a hate crime against a gay United Methodist minister involved with a male campaign worker. Also causing Jane concern is the unexpected return from Africa of her ex-lover, Dr. Julia Martinsen. Julia plots to reignite her relationship with Jane, who's involved in a troubled long-distance relationship with Kenzie, a Nebraska professor. Hart fans will enjoy the many twists, both personal and criminal." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
