The Gold Standard

by

The last readers saw of attorney Rachel Gold, she was about to get hitched. When Michael Kahn's new novel, The Flinch Factor, catches up to her, she's a widowed mother who's thrown herself into the Frankenstein Case, a hopelessly mired lawsuit pitting a working-class neighborhood against developers intent on building a gated community on top of them. The seemingly unconnected case of a handsome contractor's death has numerous parallels to the Frankenstein Case, drawing Gold deeper into a web of murder and disappearances. How does it all tie into Judge Howard Flinch, reputedly the worst and most unpredictable judge in all of Missouri? Trust in Gold -- she'll put it all together or get broken in the process. Michael Kahn discusses and signs copies of The Flinch Factor at 7 p.m. Tuesday, July 30, at St. Louis County Library Headquarters (1640 South Lindbergh Boulevard, Frontenac; 314-994-3300 or www.slcl.org). Admission is free, and copies of The Flinch Factor will be sold onsite by Left Bank Books.
