The Girl In The Riv (Paige Turner Affair, #1)
This erotic mystery-spy thriller follows the last night of a Las Vegas convention of nuclear scientists when Steve Jones decides to go out with a bang. He hires Glenda Goodbed to entertain him for his last night – literally. While she is riding him like a cowgirl three men burst into the hotel room and murder the scientist. And then she is kidnapped.
Homicide detective Bill Robertson suspects prostitute Paige Turner was a witness to the robbery and the murder of the nuclear scientist, but when she vanishes into thin air – nude – he is left with no clues to follow. The investigation then points to a terror plot as the motive when a second woman appears as a possible accomplice, but then all of the clues evaporate.
Rival terrorists battle for possession of the scientist's secrets – and the sexy girls. Who are the good guys? And, just who is the Girl in the Riv?
