It seems like a straightforward case for newly promoted DCI Paul Banham and DI Alison Grainger: the murdered women all bore an uncanny resemblance to Marilyn Monroe and worked for a look-alike agency. But the enquiry soon unearths connections with a covert investigation into drug-running and people-trafficking. A new member of the team, uniquely qualified but inexperienced, is placed in a dangerous situation-made more difficult when love rears its complicated head! Can Banham and Grainger save her from the villains-and from herself? ""Enjoyable third police procedural to feature Det. Chief Insp. Paul Banham and Det. Insp. Alison Grainger. . . not only satisfying but especially poignant."" Publishers Weekly ""Good action, a professional investigation, and a heartbreaking ending make this UK procedural series worth a look."" Library Journal ""The plot is extremely complex and well developed, and the characters are beautifully portrayed. This is an altogether fascinating and absorbing book."" - I Love a Mystery

From Publishers Weekly:

Imitating Marilyn Monroe can be fatal as British author Regan shows in her enjoyable third police procedural to feature Det. Chief Insp. Paul Banham and Det. Insp. Alison Grainger (after 2008's Passion Killers). Banham's serious crime squad has been trying for years to nab London crime lord Eddie Chang, who runs a club called Doubles, for trafficking in drugs, firearms and underage Ukrainian girls. When Marilyn impersonators performing at Doubles start meeting untimely ends, Marilyn look-alikes Det. Constable Isabelle Walsh and greenhorn Millie Payne, a police community support officer, go undercover to investigate. The Marilyn link among the victims leads to some deft plot turns. When revealed, the secrets behind Chang's obsession with the Hollywood goddess make the resolution not only satisfying but especially poignant. (Dec.)
