Realtor Ari Adams discovers the body of businessman Warren Edgington in his car. She had seen Warren arguing with Stan Wetz just a short while before. Her detective girlfriend, Molly Nelson turns up to investigate the case, which at first glance, appears to be suicide. Not long after this, Ari becomes involved with finding a property for the business tycoon, Stan Wetz.. Is it just coincidence that Ari had seen Stan and Warren arguing?
Molly meanwhile finds herself investigating the shocking murder of a child. She is finding more questions than answers though. Ari’s estranged father comes to visit her hoping for a reconciliation. Then a former client of hers, Biz Stone, has a business proposition for her. Ari knows this will upset Molly, but goes ahead anyway.
Will Ari’s and Molly’s relationship survive amid all this turmoil? Add to this police corruption, greed and mystery, with no answers forthcoming and you have a time bomb just waiting to go off.
I love these little mysteries. They keep me guessing right up to the end. Plus they always leave a little something to look forward to in the next book.
