The first novel in a new series, featuring female PI Grace Cornish, from the acclaimed author of the Philip Fletcher series of theatrical mysteries There's something about Lewis. Something that women can't resist. And being a builder, he has easy access to the houses, and the beds, of the most attractive of his clients' wives. A natural playboy, but without the money, Lewis has two simple rules: never get involved and never stick around. But with Julie he finds himself breaking the code, and he continues seeing her long after the job on her house is done. There's something about Peter McGovern, too. But he's very different from Lewis. He's rich, for a start. And he's ugly. They do have something in common, though -- Peter's wife, Julie -- and when Lewis and McGovern meet by chance over a game of pool, the lives of the three of them can never be the same. And Grace? There's definitely something about Grace. A killer blonde with a dirty mouth, she's nobody's fool. So how come she ends up getting involved with both Lewis and McGovern, sparring in a dangerous game where it's never clear who is the victim and who is the hunter.
