At first the cops had little to go on, a paycheck stub from Starlight Productions, a matchbook from the Edgewater Inn.  Oh, and a body. Definitely male and decidedly dead, covered with strange little puncture wounds.  Then they showed Beaumont what they had found in the blackberry bush. A womans cobalt blue shoe with a five-inch stiletto heel caked with blood and hair. We have a bingo, the cop said. Detective J.P. Beaumont had his corpse. He had his murder weapon. Now all he had to do was fill the shoe with a woman.

From the Back Cover:

There are many bizarre and terrible ways to die. Seattle Homicide Detective J.P. Beaumont thought he had seen them all—until he saw this body, its wounds, and the murder weapon: an elegant woman's shoe, its stiletto heel gruesomely caked with blood. The evidence is shocking and unsettling, even for a man who prowls the shadows for a living, for it suggests that savagery is not the exclusive domain of the predatory male. And the scent of a stylish killer is pulling Beaumont into a world of drugs, corruption, and murder to view close-up a cinematic dream at its most nightmarish . . . and lethal.
