Clients have to be rich and famous to afford Private Resolver Emma Rhodes--but at $3.99, readers don't. For clients all it takes is $10,000 and two weeks for Emma to prove her worth. But when Emma thwarts the kidnapping of one of Belgium's royal family, she becomes the target of Middle Eastern zealots. And suddenly two weeks seems way too long.

Cynthia Smith was the author of best-selling non-fiction books until she turned to crime. Her Emma Rhodes mysteries were acclaimed by critics and mystery fans.From Publishers Weekly:
Heroine Emma Rhodes is smart, anti-feminist and less than humble. A private detective for the rich, Rhodes is not above flashing a little cleavage to get the job done and can't understand why her "fictional" counterparts "dress in schmattes, dwell in squalor, and wallow in poverty." In Belgium on holiday, Rhodes takes on a Middle Eastern terrorist group to save a kidnapped member of the royal family. Along the way, she beds the country's top cop, outwits the Mossad and learns to make chopped liver. For the launch of this new mystery series, Smith offers fast dialogue and clever characterizations but it is more a charming character study than an effective whodunit.
