Murder among the millionaires-Along with arson, rape, drugs, blackmail, and…then love walks in. Who asked for that?

Casey Jones is a take-no-prisoners female PI who wouldn’t be caught dead whining over a lousy boyfriend or asking for help. Katy Munger’s clever sleuth is too busy lifting weights, running off at the mouth, and making doughnut runs for her overstuffed business partner, the larger-than-life Bobby D., a 360 pound Lothario whose little black book is almost as big as his appetite. With a stretch in a Florida pen behind her and no official PI license, this is one detective who comes from nothing and has nothing to lose. She lives full speed ahead and full-tilt boogie, with always the eye for a handsome face and the mouth for a witty riposte.

Only this time, it’s Casey who’s stepped in it. When a favorite client gets killed on her watch, Casey vows to find the killer no matter what the cost. When the trail leads her into the rarefied ranks of North Carolina’s social elite, Casey’s dirt poor childhood comes rushing back in a wave of self-doubt that adds fire to her considerable fury. She fights to regain her self-confidence and expose an incendiary killer, but there’s more than one offender out there—and each is more dangerous than the last.

Against a noir background of killers, arsonists, rapists, and spoiled rotten socialites, things unexpectantly take a romantic turn. To the cynical sleuth’s chagrin, her client, her favorite bartender squeeze, her best police source, and even Bobby D. are falling in love all around her. Suddenly it’s like Trouble Is My Business is waltzing (happily!) with A Midsummer’s Night Dream. Then, miraculously—world class independent PI Casey Jones is smitten herself. She quickly learns that if you’ve got somebody to love, you’ve got somebody to lose. And that just can’t happen…
