Laurel Dewey’s Detective Jane Perry is quickly becoming one of the most distinctive, dynamic, and unforgettable characters in suspense fiction today. She’s rock hard, but capable of extraordinary tenderness. She’s a brilliant cop, but she’s capable of making life-altering mistakes. She’s uncannily talented, and she’s heartbreakingly human.
In this novelette, Jane is called in to investigate the gruesome murder of a woman who profited greatly from the misfortunes of others. The case leaves Jane with little question about motive...and with a seemingly endless number of suspects.
Review: This was a decent story. Jane was a very real, believable character. Every thing was old fashion detective work, no real crazy forensics stuff. Jane just used the evidence and her know how to solve the case. I liked the mystery part of the book, but felt sorry for all the people the victim scammed. I had to wonder if they would get what they deserved or not. I was also left wondering about Jane and would like to know more. I was just left with the feeling that there was more to her than met the eye.
