Mitch Peabody was learning pretty fast that the life of a private detective was nothing like the movies. He'd envisioned a world of tough-talking detectives and smart-mouthed, stunning dames. Instead he saw case after case of cheating husbands, suspicious wives and unsuspecting mistresses???until she walked through the door.
Right down to her stilettos, Mae Sullivan was a knockout with a lethal body???and a lethal family to go with it. There was something not quite on the up-and-up about her, but she came with a case he couldn't afford to refuse???and left him with a case of lust he hadn't had since high school. It didn't take long for him to fall for her, hook, line and sinker. But was Mae interested only in catching the double-crossing crooks who murdered her uncle???or did the lady want to catch him?
