Plus-sized P.I. Savannah Reid prides herself on cracking even the toughest cases. But her latest investigation is leaving her hungry for answers as she tries to unmask the identity of a cunning, would-be killer. His prey? Legendary designer Helene Strauss, creator of the world-famous Helene doll. While Helene's brassy, take-no-prisoners style made her a huge success, it also made her quite a few enemies.

Before long, Savannah is sure she has a handle on the case. But when two key players turn up dead in Helene's sizzling hot Jacuzzi, Savannah will have to start from scratch--and question everything she thought she knew about the Strausses' twisted family tree. . .

From Publishers Weekly:

Starred Review. A killer targets 80-year-old Helene Strauss, the wealthy creator of the popular Helene doll, in McKevett's superb 16th cozy featuring San Carmelita, Calif., PI Savannah Reid (after 2010's Wicked Craving). Those who might want Helene dead include her nasty niece, druggie great-nephew, and death metal–loving great-niece as well as Helene's gardener and her housekeeper. Savannah delves into each suspect's secrets, assisted by her one employee, Tammy Hart, and her former police partner, Det. Sgt. Dirk Coulter, while her professional bodyguard buddies, John Gibson and Ryan Stone, glue themselves to Helene. These precautions, however, aren't enough to prevent a double homicide. Meanwhile, Savannah suffers repercussions from her interference with Tammy's abusive boyfriend. In addition to a delightfully surprising happy ending, McKevett supplies an author's note about domestic abuse with a list of helpful resources and contact information for those who may be victims of such abuse.
