EASIER TO KILL
Fifth in the Tamara Hayle series
Name of Detective:
I'll have to say Wyvetta Green. She owns the Jan's Beauty Biscuit, the beauty salon downstairs that she named after her long-dead mother and her favorite food. (Wyvetta loves herself some biscuits.) Wyvetta is an absolute font of wisdom and gossip. If it happened in town, Wyvetta knows about it.
Newark, New Jersey
Somewhere between thirty and thirty-five. (But some days I feel like I'm eighty-five. Other days it's eighteen.)
Full-time private investigator and conscientious single mom
First Mystery Solved:
Now that was a harrowing case. I had to find out who was killing my no-good ex-husband's sons. The murderer was quickly and surely working his way down to Jamal, my son, and time was growing short.
Bullies. I've always hated people who pick on those who can't fight back.
My grandmother who taught me to trust my instincts and listen to my heart.
Playing Miles Davis when the mood hits me, Sarah Vaughn when I'm feeling down and Patti LaBelle and Mahalia Jackson when I need to go to church.
I love a strong cup of coffee and a mild cup of tea.
Divorced with son. Still looking and hoping
"Words that come too easily usually aren't worth the air it takes to speak them, and the answers I'd gotten from mother, daughter, and even Brandon Pike had been as smooth as an old pimp's rap." --Devil's Gonna Get Him
