Overview: For the first time since their breakout debut, Casanegra, the powerful trio of Blair Underwood, Tananarive Due, and Steven Barnes teams up to bring readers back into the sexy and entertaining world of struggling actor and gigolo-turned-sleuth Tennyson Hardwick. In the Night of the Heat picks up where Casanegra left off, after Tennyson has solved the murder of rapper Afrodite. His reputation brings football superstar T. D. Jackson to his door, asking for protection when he is threatened with death after acquittal for murder. Tennyson politely turns Jackson down to pursue his acting career and personal life. But when Jackson is found dead in his home, the victim of an apparent suicide, Tennyson can't resist prying into the football star's death-especially if it means answering the question that divided a nation: Did T. D. Jackson really kill his wife?
