From the Inside Flap:

When a body is found in the garden of a fabulous mansion during a house party, it's time to bring in the law, in the form of Paul Manziuk and Jacquie Ryan.

Manziukis a born cop who started as a lowly cop on the beat and worked his way up to Inspector, which is as much responsiblility as he wants. He cares, not only about people but about stopping evil, and since a caring cop is an easy mark, he uses gruffness as a wall of protection. Manziuk has a long-suffering wife and three grown children.

Jacquie Ryan is Manziuk's counter-point. A vivacious 28-year-old who knows she has been promoted primarily because she is a black woman and , therefore, a double minority, she nevertheless grasps the opportunity with both hands. Ryan has a university degree in psychology and an advanced degree in criminology, with marks at the top of her class. She is determined to prove not only that she deserved the promotion but also that she can be as good as any cop in the department - including Manziuk.

Shaded Light is a modern cozy with all the ingredients for a delightful mystery - intriguing characters, dry humor, a little romance, and lots of twist and turns.
