In 2104 Chicago, all the evidence points towards Certified Retribution Specialist Angel Baker as the killer of the mayor's son and her best friend retributionist Roy Liebman. QED Director Lenten William Townsend arrests Angel. She knows she must rely on herself to prove her innocence and hopefully to catch the real culprit who has framed her.

Angel believes she might have an ally in Chicago Police Detective Ricuccio Marco. However, she quickly revises her opinion even as she is very attracted to him as his behavior seems to be more towards nailing her for the homicide. Deciding to go back to her original plan of sleuthing alone, Angel begins digging for evidence that will affirm she is innocent; Ric tries to keep an eye on her allegedly as part of his job, but he knows deep in his heart the reason is to keep her safe.

TOUCH OF THE WHITE TIGER, the sequel to the delightful KISS OF THE BLUE ANGEL, is a strong science fiction romantic mystery. The setting is terrifically described as Chicago is a twenty-second century NRA fantasy with guns so prevalent that it makes the Wild West look like a rodeo. The action-packed story line grips the audience with several intriguing twists, but like Angel readers will be somewhat confused by where Ric stands in her quest to prove her innocence. Similar in tone to the great Eve Dallas police procedurals, fans of three sub-genres will enjoy this strong retributionist thriller.
