Gina Beaufort Kelley, newly licensed boss of Fidelity Investigations, has her first case: stalking Steven Morton, the (perhaps) philandering husband of Gina’s divorce attorney, Diana Morton.
University professor Steven is spending significant time with one of his students. And when the young woman goes missing, and the old lady in the house next door is murdered, Steven himself is nowhere to be found.
Did Steven and his student run away together? Did one of them kill the nosy neighbor? Or is something more sinister going on?
Add in Gina’s gung-ho assistant, a sexy homicide detective who doesn’t necessarily like private investigators—although he seems to like Gina—and a mischievous dog that was a witness to a crime, and Gina has her hands full solving her first bona fide investigation.
