The Suzi B. Mysteries are a continuation of the 15-book series of Peter Sharp Legal Mysteries, in which Suzi B. is a featured character. If you haven’t read any of those, it might help you to know a little background information about the characters.
Attorney Peter Sharp’s wife Myra threw him out of their home (which she owned before they were married), due to a conflict of their philosophies about legal representation: she was a prosecutor with the District Attorney’s office, and Peter was a defender of those poor unfortunate people ‘wrongfully’ accused of crimes.
For a while Peter stayed in their back yard on a dilapidated old Chris Craft cabin cruiser he was restoring, until Melvin Braunstein, a former law school classmate, arranged for him to rent a slip in Marina del Rey California. Peter had the old boat trucked there, launched at the boatyard and towed to the slip. He then moved aboard and started making minor court appearances for Melvin Braunstein, who operated his own small law practice from a houseboat in the Marina, on the same dock as Peter’s boat.
