Beautiful, Dirty, Rich Publisher's Summary

A gripping new novel from best-selling author J. D. Mason about a wealthy Texas family and the one woman who holds - and will reveal - all their dirty secrets.

Desdimona Green has been the name on everyone’s lips in Blink, Texas. Twenty-five years ago, at the age of 18, she shot and killed one of Blink’s wealthiest men, a pillar of the community, oil baron Julian Gatewood. The Gatewood family was considered untouchable, so the whole state of Texas was rocked to its core over Julian’s murder. But people were even more shocked to discover that Desi was Julian’s daughter and that her mother had been his lover for years.

When Desi gets out of jail and promptly inherits millions from Julian’s estate, everyone knows that there is much more to the story - and Desi Green is the keeper of the Gatewood secrets, including what happened the night Julian died. When a famous true-crime reporter shows up on her doorstep wanting the full story, Desi agrees to reveal all, much to the horror of the Gatewoods, who will do anything to stop her. But Desi has more than a few tricks up her sleeve.

Mason is the author of Somebody Pick Up My Pieces, That Devil’s No Friend of Mine, You Gotta Sin to Get Saved, This Fire down in My Soul, Don’t Want No Sugar, And on the Eighth Day She Rested, One Day I Saw a Black King, and Take Your Pleasure Where You Find It.

    Lonnie Adebayo, best friend to Desdimona Green, is a walking, talking billboard for the old adage “You can’t keep a good woman down.” But Jordan Gatewood has done so much more than just try to keep her down. He made a huge mistake when he put his hands on her, thinking that he could get away with it - but he made an even bigger mistake by not making sure she was dead before he left that house. Finding Jordan’s secret half-brother is just the beginning of Lonnie’s plot for revenge.
