Sophie Katz has just offered a man $12,000 for his services. Is she desperate or just meshugeneh?Considering the kind of disasters that usually befall the half-black, half-Jewish mystery writer, probably both. Because the last time Sophie saw sexy P.I. Anatoly Darinsky, he practically danced a jig when she waved goodbye; a normal reaction for a man who'd nearly bought the farm trying to protect her from her own foolishness. What are the chances he'd agree to take incriminating pictures of her sister's philandering husband? Or that he'd let her tag along, you know, for research?
But when her brother-in-law turns up dead and her sister becomes the prime suspect, Sophie's priority is finding the real killer. With or without Anatoly's help. Her brother-in-law's secret life yields plenty of suspects, but the San Francisco police aren't taking any of them seriously. So Sophie does what comes naturally to her: she stirs up trouble (to lure the killer out, of course).
But if her crazy plan works, will Anatoly be there to protect her this time?
"Following hard on the red spike heels of 2005's Sex, Murder, and a Double Latte, Davis' second whodunit delivers on the promise of the first....Davis chooses style over substance, skillfully keeping the snappy dialogue funny all the way to the unsurprising surprise ending." (Publishers Weekly)

Great Chick Lit Mystery
I would have loved this book as much as I loved the first book, but simple common sense things like calling a lawyer when being questioned by police or calling the police when an intruder is in your house or not going into someone's opened house due to no answer, all overlooked. This made the story irritating and unrealistic. Not my favorite.
