"A MUST-READ FOR CRIME-NOVEL FANATICS . . . That rarity, a serious, multilayered novel of crime that recalls Graham Greene's Third Man and Brighton Rock."
--Booklist

All is not well in the life of Greenwich Village lesbian P.I. Lauren Laurano. She and her lover are drifting apart. There's a psychopath watching her every move. Her friend Elissa's rich aunt has just been brutally murdered--and the police suspect that Elissa is the killer.

Lauren knows better. So, using her unique combination of street-savvy detecting and on-line know-how, Lauren sets out to prove Elissa's innocence. But exonerating her friend rapidly turns into a perilous assignment.

Stalking and being stalked, Lauren Laurano is forced to use resources she never knew she had--just to stay alive.

"ENGAGING . . . A deft touch is the closing cliffhanger."
--Publishers Weekly

From the Publisher:

Vertically challenged Lauren Laurano has a hard time convincing people that she really is a private investigator. As if that's not bad enough, her lover is constantly on her case about her dangerous vocation and her cholesterol level. This mystery series has some of the cleverest observations of life in Greenwich Village ever set to paper. If you've never read these, all I can say is I envy you -- you're in for a treat from this witty, talented author.

--Sue Miller, Ballantine Sales
