Success has always come easy to socialite MaryBeth Gilland. Following her father’s death, however, she needs some cash, quick.
As head of an in-house detective agency owned by her father, Gray Wheeler has had it cushy as well. Suddenly, he’s got to turn a profit to stay in business. But when MaryBeth sashays in looking for a job with adventure, he hires her on the spot. Now he really needs to produce.
Enter a client who claims her sister is being murdered, even as they speak. The victim is in a coma, but it’s only a matter of time. The client insists her brother-in-law Leland “Jack” Sprat is to blame, and she’ll pay big money to see him behind bars. Time for MaryBeth to show she’s more than just a pretty face and Wheeler to prove he can actually investigate. If they don’t kill each other first.
