Grass Roots

Stuart Woods. Avon Books, $6.99 (0pp) ISBN 978-0-380-71169-7

A senate election, a controversial murder trial and a string of vigilante killings are compelling plot elements woven into this ``tautly drawn suspense novel.'' PW noted that although the ingenuity runs out in the final chapters, ``Woods's headlong storytelling style is stoked with enough sex and violence to ignite a TV miniseries.'' (May)
