Death in White Satin
Al Pennyback is not overly fond of rich people – he firmly believes they are selfish and greedy, and that they have no consideration for those they consider lesser beings. When he’s asked by his friend Quincy Chang to take a client who is the son of the richest man in the state, he has misgivings. He finally decides to take the case, though, when he learns it’s to prove the innocence of the handyman who works for the family, who has been accused of murdering his client’s fiancée. As Al becomes immersed in the muck and mire of a dysfunctional family’s affairs, he finds little to change his disdain for the privileged classes. His sense of karmic balance is challenged as he encounters the realities of wealth and influence.
