      January 2009Previously: In the Heat of the NightWhen we last met African-American homicide detective Virgil Tibbs, he was investigating a murder in the Deep South, with all the bells and whistles of good ol' Southern racism there to make his job more difficult. Now Virgil has returned to California to solve a new case a nudist resort!When a nude body shows up in a pool at the Sun Valley Lodge--but a body that was definitely not a member--Virgil Tibbs takes the case, which is not made easy by the [...]

      I guess I first started wanting to be black when I was a little kid watching Sidney Poitier.Guess Who's Coming to Dinner: "You think of yourself as a colored man. I think of myself a man."Sidney again in "To Sir With Love", easily one of the all time truly great novel-film adaptations (produced and directed by novelist James Cavell, from the novel by E.R. Braithwaite): "I am sick of your foul language, your crude behavior and your sluttish manner. There are certain things a decent woman keeps pr [...]

      I was surprised and delighted by this follow-up to In the Heat of the Night, John Ball's tale of a black detective, made into the superb film starring Sidney Poitier.You'd expect a detective story written and published in the 60s and concerning a nudist colony to be sexist and cheap, but this is neither. Virgil Tibbs, the detective of the earlier novel, investigates when a body is found in the swimming pool at a nudist resort.It's a fine detective story and the clues are there for the reader - t [...]

      Perhaps because “In the Heat of the Night” is such a cultural icon, any follow up book about Mr. Tibbs will fall short. This book, second in the series, is a decent police procedural featuring the ever-cool Mr. Tibbs. He uses his logic, his demeanor and his martial arts training to solve a murder, facing bigotry along the way. Pretty standard police procedural with a unique protagonist.Narration by Dion Graham is outstanding.

      Written in the 60's this is the followup novel to In The Heat of the Night. Let the reader know to watch for the vague clues to the mystery. I missed them completely, although at the end I knew when the final attack came. All is explained at the end of the story.

      #2 in the Virgil Tibbs series. Tibbs has to solve a murder in a nudist resort. The unusual environment adds to this mystery. Ball brings his background as a nudist to add realism to the settings.Virgil Tibbs series - Sun Valley Lodge was in a nudist park which had an excellent reputation and a most careful screening of members. Though the body floating in the pool was nude, it was not the body of one of the members. The dead man was well-to-do, perhaps even prominent. But his clothing was nowher [...]

      Чернокожий сыщик Вирджил Тиббс только вернулся из расистской Каролины в родную толерантную Калифорнию, а его уже ждет новое расследование - в местном лагере нудистов найден труп неизвестного, до смерти забитого голыми (pun intended) руками! Тиббс, конечно, со своей обычной тщате [...]

      Another Excellent Read!This author was so ahead of his time! The story is both riveting and entertaining! The characters are very believable and the prejudice against a nudist lifestyle as well addressing the prejudice towards the color of the leading character, Virgil Gibbs. I truly wish I had discovered this author a long time ago. Truly entertaining and an exceptional read.

      Loved the writing style. Looking forward to reading the rest of the books in this series based on Virgil Tibbs. Kept seeing Sidney Poitier's face :)
