2TC "The Last Hotel for Women," by Vicki Covington. Simon & Schuster. 300 pages. $23 Birmingham, Ala., isn't a typical setting for a novel, even one set in the civil rights era, when the city was a synonym for segregation. Vicki Covington uses a fictional family to explain the complexities of her hometown, both to those who know nothing about it and people who have lived there all their lives and purposely put its embarrassing past out of their minds.I met Ms. Covington several years ago when she started writing an occasional opinion column for the Birmingham News, where I was an editorial writer.

A 59-acre waterfront parcel in Port Covington that has long been eyed for development was bought for $35 million, the property's longtime owner announced Tuesday. Bethesda-based Finmarc Management Inc. bought the property in 2005 with plans for an expanded shopping center that never materialized. Since 2002, the site has hosted a Walmart and former Sam's Club, which closed in 2008. Finmarc identified the buyer as 2701 Port Covington Drive LLC, an entity created this month and represented by law firm Ballard Spahr LLP, according to state records.

A large chunk of waterfront property in Port Covington is set to go on the auction block in June after its previous owner, Struever Bros. Eccles & Rouse, defaulted on a multimillion-dollar mortgage. The now-defunct developer owed BB&T Bank more than $10.7 million for the roughly 10-acre parcel in South Baltimore off East Cromwell Street. A trustee-ordered sale is scheduled June 14. The foreclosure sale brings new hope to an area filled with weedy lots — an area where developers have struggled for decades to get a foothold.

A woman walking through Riverside Park in South Baltimore early Sunday was attacked and sexually assaulted, and city police are asking for help in locating a suspect, authorities said on Tuesday. The incident occurred 10 days after a couple was robbed at gunpoint at East Clement and Covington streets, a few blocks south of the park which runs along East Randall Street, between Johnson and Covington streets. City police released scant details of the latest attack, and only after inquiries from The Baltimore Sun. The police then issued a news release to all the city's media.

Lauren Spates, a 27-year-old former cheerleader for the Ravens, says she knows who attacked her and her husband early Saturday at South Baltimore's Clement and Covington streets. She looked long and hard, she said, knowing her identification "would be the only thing that would get them. " In an interview on Tuesday, Spates said, "Believe me, I'll never forget that man's face when he asked me to take my rings off my finger. " The attack early Saturday in which Spates and her new husband were robbed at gunpoint -- she of her engagement ring and wedding band, worth a combined $22,000 -- has stunned the residential neighborhood north of Fort Avenue.

A jazz club owner who was with Kenneth N. Harris moments before the former Baltimore City Council member was shot to death said in court Tuesday that when a gunman approached them outside the club and ordered them back inside, Harris blurted out an expletive and then his wife's name, Annette. Harris, who was spending the evening with another woman, disregarded the gunman's commands and "broke off to get back to his car," where the woman was sitting, said the club owner, Keith A. Covington.
