Meet Carly Wagner, five-term Texas congresswoman and likable heroine of a new mystery series by romance novelist Power (Never Say Never ). When Carly finds a congressman murdered—and his penis hacked off to boot—in her office, no one really suspects that Carly killed her colleague, but until the culprit is caught, she's under a cloud. Enter Mr. Jones, a bodyguard-cum-PI who makes Superman seem inept and homely. Someone with a vested interest in clearing Carly hired him to look after her, but even Jones doesn't know who's paying his salary. Carly, wary of accepting Jones's help, eventually agrees to work with him to find the killer. Carly's ostensibly witty repartee rarely rises above the level of the title's tasteless double entendre, but the identity of the enigmatic Mr. Jones's employer is every bit as intriguing as the identity of the murderer. Numerous potential suitors guarantee that amorous sparks will fly in future installments of this promising political series. (Sept.)
