"A woman with a murky past who kills herself-or was it murder?
A spoiled kid awash in gambling debt who thinks he can beat the system.
A lovely woman whose life is about to splinter into a thousand fragments.
A professional shoplifting ring working for the Mob, racking up millions from stolen goods.
A wandering husband, rich and ruthless.
A dirty cop so entrenched on the force he is immune to exposure.
A sinister gangster, conscienceless and brutal.
A lonely widower mourning the death of his lover, desperate for answers, which may be worse than the pain of his loss.
A private detective, Kinsey Millhone, whose thirty-eighth-birthday gift is a punch in the face that leaves her with two black eyes and a busted nose.
And an elegant and powerful businessman whose dealings are definitely outside the law: the magus at the center of the web."
I LOVED loved loved this one!!! I think it's my favorite in the series so far. I loved the parallel storylines and I think Kinsey was such a bad-ass!
[I'm counting this one for the Cruisin' Thru the Cozies Reading Challenge 2014]
