Rachel Gold is embroiled in a lost cause--the Frankenstein Case--where she represents a blue-collar neighborhood fighting a powerful developer intent on bulldozing their homes to erect a swanky gated community. Who's pushing her here? Of course, her mother. Rachel's strategy will be based on the wild card that is the judge on the case--a judge so wacky he's known to the St Louis Bar as The Flinch Factor (think the spawn of Judge Judy and Pee Wee Herman). Plus Rachel gains another new client: Susannah, sister of Nick Moran, the heartthrob of every woman whose kitchen he remodeled. Nick has been murdered, found slumped on the front seat of his pickup along an isolated lane known to the vice squad as Gay Way, his pants unzipped, a coil of rubber tubing on the seat, an empty syringe on the floor. His female groupies are, to say the least, stunned. Gay? No way. Although Susannah seems the classic blindly adoring younger sister, a skeptical Rachel agrees to check it out. To her surprise, she turns up facts and witnesses suggesting that maybe, just maybe, Nick's death was staged as an overdose during sex. Then things rapidly grow darker in what increasingly becomes a real Frankenstein of a case...

Novel compared favorably as his past work. Bittersweet on character's personal life.

The gay slurs in conversation turned me off.
