Meet Cassandra Slick--a private investigator who knows that few pleasures in life can compare to a dry martini, a sexy blonde, and serving sweet justice on New Jersey's meanest streets. . . While other little girls dreamed of growing up to be princesses, Cassandra Slick wanted to be Pam Grier in Foxy Brown, busting bad-ass criminals while yelling "e;Take that, you jive turkey!"e; She got her wish, but at the request of her girlfriend Laura--the beautiful, blonde daughter of New Jersey's wealthiest clam magnate--Slick has given up cop life to be a P.I. Now her former precinct captain, Frank DeStasio, has called on Slick's help to clear a colleague, Tom Brandeal, accused of murdering a gorgeous black prostitute. Brandeal is a homophobe who does the force no favors, but Slick has her own reasons for wanting to know what really happened to her old friend Paradise, a.k.a Gloria Roxley. Scouring the back alleys and red-light districts of Newark--the compost heap of the Garden State--Slick is soon knee-deep in shady senators, crooked cops, fabulous transsexuals, sordid blackmail, and lots and lots of dead bodies--and her troubles are only just beginning. . .
