Publisher's summary

Casanegra follows the adventures of Tennyson Hardwick, a gorgeous, sexy former actor and gigolo living on the fringes of the good life in Hollywood. This story combines the glamour of Hollywood with the seedy hopelessness of the inner city.

In this hot and steamy mystery, Tennyson is an actor struggling to hang on to his career and redeem his sex-for-pay history, which estranged him from his family, especially his father, a decorated LAPD captain who raised Tennyson to call him "Sir". Now, in the wake of his father's sudden stroke, Tennyson has to save himself from taking the fall for a murder. In the process, he discovers his hidden talents - the hard way.

Blair Underwood, a Golden Globe-nominated actor and the author of Before I Got Here, joins best-selling novelists Tananarive Due and Steven Barnes to create a cool, irresistible character in Tennyson Hardwick. And this gritty, provocative mystery will keep readers craving more.

2 things I like most

This was a great mystery as well as hot, hot, hot! The naysayers are prudes. When are we going to be able to hear "In the Night of the Heat"? Now that I've heard these narrators, I don't think I could get the same effect reading in a paper copy...

Pure entertainment

Ok, it got a bit spicey, but it is JUST ENTERTAINMENT, not a study in literature. I was pleasantly surprised, and simply enjoyed the whole book. I enjoyed the Agatha Christie style of so many suspects. The reader's voice was not what I would expect, but fine. I find I adapt to readers I don't enjoy at first. Try it! It is just a bit of a twist on the typical characters, professions, and background.
