One Night Stand
by Roland S. Jefferson




Overview -
How did a street hustler, in and out of jail since he was ten, beat a murder rap, no matter whether he did the crime or not? Meet Myra Cross, a thirty-one-year-old redheaded beauty with a take-no-prisoners reputation as a Public Defender. She confounds her colleagues and clients alike as she not only wins acquittal after acquittal but poses for Playboy in her spare time. She has the face of an angel, the body of a goddess, and a mind like a steel trap. But with secrets and demons, she neither pretends to be a Girl Scout nor to have all the answers. This time, when she's once again assigned the defense of Napoleon T. Booker -- aka Little Dog Nine, who's charged with another homicide -- she gets much more than she bargained for. Acclaimed author of the cult classic The School on 103rd Street, Roland S. Jefferson weaves an explosive literary mix of contemporary urban authenticity and classic old-school crime into a mesmerizing, pulse-pounding thriller.
