       Additional Information  
     
      Though the town of rural Ogeechee aren't all that far from bustling Atlanta, it still retains the charm and quirks of some sleepy Southern communities. Topping that list is old Tanner Whitcomb, who drives through Ogeechee in an imaginary car with a hubcap for a steering wheel. So when he reports that he's run over somebody, Officer Trud Roundtree puts on a straight face and goes to investigate.

    She finds a dead body with a tire mark on it.

    Trudy has seen the victim -- a handsome, expensively groomed man -- somewhere before. Putting Tanner's claims of guilt aside, Trudy follows a trail leading to a posh Atlanta art gallery -- and a drama of greed, passion and manipulation. Even Trudy's own past becomes part of the complex mystery as she closes in on a killer who, having murdered once, is more than willing to kill again.
