When her lover urges Denise to look into an old murder in his district - and then just as urgently begs her to drop the whole thing, her stubborn streak kicks in. And when he dies in flagrante with a D.C. callgirl, her bullshit detector goes on red alert: the good congressman didn't have to pay for sex.
But when death strikes even closer to home, Denise becomes a woman with a big-time problem. Someone is very serious about getting her to drop the old case - serious enough to make her the target of the next hit.
"Susan Ericksen's energetic yet thoughtful reading plays up the humanity of the three female leads...her enthusiastic, well-acted narration keeps us engaged." (AudioFile)
