When her father dies in a fire and the suspected arsonist is later murdered, Annie Velasquez comes under suspicion. Though the police don’t have evidence to arrest her, in an effort to escape stress and rebuild her shattered life, Annie moves south of Portland, Oregon, and gets a housekeeping job. Peace of mind is short-lived when her employer is stabbed to death and a new police investigator is on this case. Who killed Dr. Wentworth? Is there a malevolent force dogging Annie’s footsteps? And what happened to the house chef, Annie’s friend Mo? Will Annie live long enough to find out?
“There’s nothing I like better than a mystery/thriller where the characters are in a serious situation and still have a funny way of observing the world. EJ Kindred strikes just the right balance. Annie Velasquez is in the middle of a big muddle, but she retains her sense of humor. And I loved her Harley-riding gramma! This was such a good read, and I look forward to more in book two in this sleuth’s world.” —Jessie Chandler, author of The Shay O’Hanlon Caper Series
