Abstract:

"Trojan Park is a glimpse at the narcissist prone culture of the society noir which upper elite artists careers ascend as quickly as they recede. From ritzy Terra Linda to glitzy Montclair the social climb to wealth seduces a young socialite, whose flirtation with thrill-seeking and reckless danger leaves dead two husbands on the Fourth of July. A fast paced page turner, this novel sizzles with intrigue and tawdry motivation and a questionable cast of characters: Geneva Roark - a svelte silver blonde with insatiable ambition who marries her first husband to get away from a stifling parent; Wesley Roark - owns everything in San Francisco from banks to commodities; Adam King - the manservant who spends top dollar on all the best in finery for his boss only to get taken for a million bucks ransom; Terry D'Coteur - a stunning French mulatto whose life would go a lot better had her ex-husband used his head and stayed married to her; Randall Roark - refuses to follow in his father's footsteps even if he curbs his impulsive indulgence; Sylvan Reese - the principal barrister who knows the secrets of his wealthy patron; Carole Price - a has-been entertainer whose life is on the rocks. Who stands to earn a killing on the senior Roark's life? Alameda County Deputy District Attorney Lenny Cliford tracks the desperate dealings of a family at war with its adolescent heir-son. Through tantalizing art and state-of-the-day security systems to protect a museum, a fail-safe chase takes this investigator-attorney to Paris to the Musee du Louvre, to the Los Osos coast and then Seattle to dragnet a diamond heist of staggering proportions." --
