That dirty job done, a lovely evening turns even more delightful when she’s picked up by the cops and spends the next two hours at the Hall of Justice. Could this day get any worse? Of Course! Guess who arrives home to find a dead hooker on her living room floor?
Handsome Parker Phillips, Rebecca’s new beau and the most attractive man she’s met in ages, is arrested for the murder. (Worse, she suspects he might actually have done it.)
On the plus side, another very attractive man is following the case--reporter Rob Burns of the San Francisco Chronicle, a possible ally. And there are other possibilities.
Fans of Janet Evanovich, Joan Hess, and Elizabeth Peters will get a kick out of this one.

He was a big man, not like Mr. Pudgy back there, but broad in the shoulders with a heavily muscled chest. Even sitting, Beth could tell he had to be at least six foot three or four.

His dark hair and green eyes were impressive, but the firm jaw and full sensuous lips made his rugged good looks downright devastating.
Then he spoke, and her perfect ten rapidly descended to a five.
“Are you catching flies or does your trap always stay open?”
Beth’s mouth clamped shut, teeth grinding as she struggled to control her temper. What an arrogant ass
