Do or Dieby Grace F. Edwards
Synopses & Reviews
A songbird is silenced ... by murder.
With her soulful voice and delicate beauty, Starr Hendrix seemed destined to live up to her name and hit it big as a jazz singer. But her career ended before it began, and Mali's father offered Starr a second chance by giving her top billing as singer for his popular jazz band's latest show. Mali isn't surprised when Starr doesn't show — but everyone is shocked when the troubled woman is found savagely murdered....
The prime suspect is a low-life pimp with a grudge against Starr. But then the pimp stops a bullet — and everyone suspects Starr's devastated father of exacting his own revenge. Mali vows to use her experience as a former cop to find the real killer. Her search will take her in and out of the "three B's" of Harlem: the beauty shops, barbershops, and the bars. But it will also lead Mali directly into the path of a killer — one who, if not stopped, will almost surely strike again....
Harlem's super-sleuth is back as she seeks out the killer of a singer in her father's band. The prime suspect in Starr Hendrix's murder, a low-life pimp, stops a bullet--and everyone suspects Starr's father of exacting revenge. Mali vows to use her skills as a former cop to find the real killer.
