Description
It was part street theater, part civil  disobedience, and pure Berkeley: Someone was waging  guerrilla warfare on the city's meter maids and their  beloved parking meters. But when the prankster took  detective Jill Smith and her colleagues on a wild  chase into a deep, overgrown ravine, the game led  to murder. The dead woman was Madeleine Riordan.  A firebrand attorney who was not above an act of  civil disobedience herself, Madeleine spent her  last days in a nursing home that was perched on the  edge of a ravine. Praying into the extraordinary  life and times of Madeleine Riordan, Jill  discovered a strange connection between the meter capers  and the frail, cancer stricken woman who had once  been an unyielding defender of individual liberties.  And then Jill found something else: a crime  Madelene had witnessed, and died trying to stop. .  .

display_description When a rash of pranks on the city's meter maids turns deadly, Jill Smith isn't amused Two witnesses see the man drag the old woman into a canyon while brandishing a rifle. As night falls, detective Jill Smith and the Berkeley police department set up a perimeter. The canyon is a hostage negotiator's nightmare-dark, rough, and full of escape routes-and when she finally opens communication, the gunman doesn't respond. Rather than wait for dawn, Jill leads her team into the darkness. At the bottom of the canyon they find a battered old mannequin and a box of stolen parking tickets. The entire incident was another skirmish in one man's ongoing war to humiliate the city's meter maids. Interviewing the residents on the canyon's lip, Jill meets Madeleine Riordan, retired attorney and legendary firebrand She seems to know something, but refuses to tell until the next day. When Jill returns, the woman has been murdered, and Jill suspects that the prankster may have lost his sense of humor. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Susan Dunlap including rare images from the author's personal collection.
