Getting shot at made murder her business. . .
Demary Jones's Confidential Research and Inquiry specializes in genealogy and historical research, not murder. But when a sniper opens fire in her office, killing a clientwho wants her to tap his phones, and leaving Demary with a head wound, she's very determined to accept the widow's generous offer to track down a killer.
Soon there's a string of connected murders that put Demary's investigative skills to the test: the body of a warehouse worker; a young man found floating in a bathtub; another, the victim of a "fall." As she cleverly uncovers both a drug trafficking network and some shocking facts about the people closest to her, she also comes face to face with a conspiracy of killers desperate to make Demary's life story a closed book.

Demary (pronounced De-mary) Jones is the owner of Confidential Research and Inquiry, a small firm specializing in genealogy and historical research. Demary knows she isn't qualified to investigate a murder, but when a client is shot as he leaves her office, she accepts the grieving widow's lavish job offer - Money is no object, just find the killer. As Demary herself says, she has a weakness for money, and she doesn't think locating a murderer will be any harder than ferreting out an obscure sixteenth-century ancestor. In any event, detecting doesn't prove to be that easy, even with the help of her old friend, homicide detective Lt. Sam Morgan. But Demary persists to the end, despite three more killings and some unwanted conclusions about people she thought she knew.About the Author:
