Barely Dead by Allan McLeod


Barely Dead by Allan McLeod

SOFTDCOVER EDITION What connects a gay man, a murdered stripper, and a hazardous fertilizer plant? When international journalist, Paige Harrington, is told her life-long friend, Wally Adams, the leading opponent of the plant, has committed suicide, she suspects murder. While home for Wally's funeral, she is given a file with a dozen news clippings about a murdered stripper known as Peppermint and an oblique reference to ownership of the fertilizer plant, but nothing factual and nothing to tie Wally, Peppermint, and the fertilizer plant together. She knows Wally; she knows how he thinks; she knows how he works; the file isn't an accident. To find the connection, she goes to work as Tawny Lane, stripper, in a club knows as The Garter. There she discovers disturbing information. Friends disappear; she fears for their lives. She is betrayed; her life is in danger. Someone is risking everything to keep her from the truth.
