She has a daughter who adores her, a lucrative business, chic home in one of Atlanta’s most upscale gated communities, money in the bank, access to the finest luxury vehicles and holds a degree in anthropology.
Riddles works as a stripper by choice.
She’s even come to grips with her child’s father, who left her with their baby in her womb, so life is going according to plan until, one night, her co-worker and friend Malibu is murdered in a VIP room at Joker’s Gentleman’s Club.
As soon as the last piece of evidence is collected at the club, it’s back to business as usual and no one seems interested in finding the killer… except for Riddles.
A feeling deep down in her gut drives Riddles to become an amateur sleuth, and not too soon as she discovers she must solve this mystery in order to protect her own life.
I sighed then looked at my thigh. I peeled a single twenty-dollar bill from my garter and shoved it into his hands. He shoved it in his pocket then stepped to the side – out of my way.
Get to know Rhonda:
The author with the biggest influence on my writing career is probably Toni Morrison because I took a class in college studying her works. I’ve read and dissected all of her books. I’m into “classics.” I love to read what’s considered “the best.” I love classic African American authors pre and post Harlem Renaissance. I am a huge fan of Donald Goines. I still remember the first time I discovered his work. Maya Angelou is my hero. Terri McMillian. I love more street lit writers Shannon Holmes, Nikki Turner, Teri Woods, Vicki Stringer. I adore Tracy Brown. I’m inspired by the works of T.D. Jakes. I’m motivated by Tamika Newhouse. Seriously, there are really just too many to name.
