"After recovering from her last brush with murder, Charlie Plato, country-western club manager of Chaps, had decided it's time to take a break from teaching the Texas two-step and get lessons herself - in self-defense. The women's kung-fu course at Chaps is a bit slow warming up - except for Estrella, a pretty young Filipina who's more than ready to beat up the macho instructor. But this angry lady's real target, she confides to Charlie, is the husband whose bruises she displays on her arm. When Estrella is stabbed to death and tossed off a bridge, it isn't hard to put it down to a case of bad love. But Charlie, always curious, wants to know more."; 6¾" - 7¾" Tall; Signed by Author
