In the third of an exciting new series, Sandy Reid runs into a problem of the dead kind and soon the police want her to butt out, the State Attorney wants her disbarred, and the killer wants her dead. Not the best situation for a brand new lawyer who's trying to live down a reputation for being sassy and reckless. Fresh from passing the Florida bar exam she stumbles over a potential client-shot between the eyes. Sandy believes the murdered woman is asking her to find the killer. How else to explain the mysterious spot of blood Sandy later discovers on her own hand? That drop of blood changes everything. Sandy begins a personal vendetta to find the killer. Her new law partner, Martin, joins in to help, and although he has a more intimate relationship in mind, he's not the one she becomes interested in along the way. In any case, she doesn't intend to stray from her hunky detective lover-or does she? Then, a friend in Martin's group kills himself-or was it a second murder cleverly disguised as suicide? Now with two people dead, she is certain that with all the deceiving and lusting going on, someone in the group of friends is guilty. Our feisty heroine can't resist meddling in both cases, and pursues the murderer with all the subtlety of a pit bull. She'd rather follow the killer than follow the rules and is arrested at the very start when she steps outside the law. Nothing will stop her pursuit, but now she must also clear herself and save her law license. She faces a blank wall until Martin reminds her to follow the sex or the money to solve all mysteries-she isn't aware that he knows quite a bit about both. In turn, she has a vital secret that she dares not share with him. Unraveling the exciting plot leads her into even greater danger as she uncovers a larger motive and is drawn into an intrigue that stretches out to national ramifications. With vengeance on her mind, guilt and innocence are up for grabs and she decides to hand out her own brand of justice. At the last moment, she discovers her gutsy scheme to entrap the killer is more dangerous than expected and must play out exactly right for her to get out alive. The third book in this fast-paced mystery series.
