The Do-rightBook - 2015
11973. That's fourteen years of prison time after Delpha Wade killed a man who was raping her. She wanted to kill the other one too, but he got away. It's hard to find a decent job, but Delpha's persistence pays off. She lands a secretarial job with Tom Phelan, an ex-roughneck turned neophyte private eye. Delpha is smart, prison-wise, and together the two stumble into the dark corners of Beaumont, a blue-collar, Cajun-influenced town dominated by Big Oil. A mysterious client plots mayhem against a small petrochemical company. And Delpha on a weekend outing looks into the eyes of her rapist, the one who got away.
