"Move over John Grisham!" -- Debbi Mack, NY Times Bestselling Author of Identity Crisis and Least Wanted Vengeance burns brightest at THE FLAMING MOTEL, the blistering sequel to FOLLOW THE MONEY. When porn mogul Don Vargas is accidentally shot by police in his home during a Halloween costume party, Oliver Olson and his law partner, Mark Jendrek, are hired to sue the LAPD for wrongful death. But as they dig into the case, the circumstances surrounding the shooting become more and more bizarre. Why does the key witness to the shooting hang himself in a warehouse? Who made the anonymous noise disturbance call that led to the shooting? Was the body that washed up on a Malibu beach connected somehow? What secrets are embedded in a mid-70s porno shown at Vargas's wake? And who are all these women in Don Vargas's life? The gorgeous trophy wife with no past. The ex-wife who helped build an empire only to be left behind when a younger model showed up. And the brilliant porn star ingénue who lived in the Vargas mansion under the tutelage of Vargas himself. A hundred million dollar fortune is up for grabs and the more Ollie and Jendrek dig, the more mired they become in a web of sex, fraud, revenge, and the ever-present specter of murder. Was the Vargas shooting just the beginning? Or was it the end of something terrible hidden deep in everyone's past? Before it's all over, Ollie and Jendrek learn a universal truth: WHEN EVERYONE IS OUT TO SCREW EACH OTHER . . . EVERYONE ENDS UP FUCKED.
