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?

display_description An Olympic athlete finds her life in danger when she starts a feud with a ruthless gym owner Homicide detectives don't chase streakers. So it shouldn't be Jill Smith's problem when Berkeley's new public nudity ban stirs the spirit of the city's exhibitionists, unleashing a horde of indignant flashers on the city streets. But department infighting has resulted in Jill being stripped of her gold detective badge and put back in uniform to pursue the naked radicals. She's pursuing one of these au naturel miscreants though a patch of poison oak when she's stopped by Bryn Wiley, Olympic diver, gym owner, and local hero. Bryn is in a feud with a rival fitness club, whose owner she suspects of shooting bullets through her car windows. Jill can't help her-she has nudists to apprehend!-and so Bryn resolves to take matters into her own hands, holding a press conference where she calls her rival out. It's a bold move, and may also be a foolish one. Her assailant's next target will be something far more valuable than a car. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Susan Dunlap including rare images from the author's personal collection.
