A Jill Smith Mystery

Book - 1996
Rate this:
From bestselling author Susan Dunlap comes this wry, indecently entertaining mystery involving politics, murder--and nudity. Where else but in Berkeley, California, could naked protesters, competing health clubs, and ex-sixties radicals add up to murder?  And who else would find herself smack in the middle of this crisis than back-on-the-beat Detective Jill Smith, the beloved protagonist of seven previous Susan Dunlap mysteries? During a protest of the recent city ordinance against nudity, Jill is called in to put a stop to a slew of naked protesters.  While she's at it, she runs into Bryn Wiley, founder of a local gym, who complains of vandalism, and suspects that the culprit is Sam Johnson, a hostile ex-sixties radical who owns a competing health club.  Jill starts to investigate, but is halted by a much larger crime: Bryn is shot at close range, and a lot of questions need to be answered.  Who shot Bryn and why?  What happened to all the idealists who are dropping their values and selling out?  And how is the irrepressible Jill Smith going to figure it all out?
