Fans of the lesbian detective Lauren Laurano and her lover Kip will be thrilled to learn of the fifth book in Scoppettone's much-loved series. Here are the familiar wisecracks and the hard-edged New York humor, but in a new setting, a Long Island resort town where two of Lauren and Kip's close friends have just moved. Their trip to North Fork is supposed to be a healing, romantic vacation--Lauren has even forsworn e-mail and the Internet in an attempt to rekindle the fire with Kip--but they haven't even ordered their first breakfast at the local diner when a stranger bursts in, announcing that a body has been found hanged in the woods. The dead man's cousin insists it can't be suicide. Over Kip's objections, Lauren plunges into the case, making enemies of almost every town official. Or is almost every town official trying to cover something up? The investigation unfolds against the backdrop of Kip's disappointment in her lover and Lauren's fears that their relationship can never recover the trust and passion it once had. --Regina MarlerFrom the Back Cover:
