Anna Winthrop, daughter of a millionaire businessman, works for the New York City Sanitation Department. Her family is appalled by her career choice, but Anna is proud that she has worked her way up to the rank of supervisor. Plus, she is dating handsome cop Santos Reyes, so she is feeling pretty good. But things change when Anna’s sometime friend, a homeless man named Isaiah, asks for her help; she ignores him to take an urgent call from work, and minutes later, Isaiah is found behind Anna’s apartment building, his throat slit. The police seem uninterested in anything more than going through the motions to find the killer, so Anna vows to find justice for her murdered friend. In the process, she finds out some shocking truths about Isaiah, New York’s homeless population, the art world, and even her own family. Feisty, determined Anna makes an appealing heroine, and despite a somewhat hurried ending, this one is an entertaining, keep-’em-guessing page-turner. A fine choice for those who like Janet Evanovich’s Stephanie Plum series. --Emily Melton
