Two old college friends, Genevieve Delacourt, a Lawyer turned Private Investigator, and Cambria Butler, a would-be investigative journalist, meet up unexpectedly one day to find themselves living in the same apartment block. They are so pleased to met up again, but Bree is in a rush to interview a chemical engineer called Andrew Ducane who works for a company called Elergene Enterprises, so the two women agree to arrange a catch up very soon.
Bree arrives at Elergene Enterprises only to discover a body! She is in shock and is accused of committing the crime by Taylor Vonnegon, the CEO, who calls the police. Bree is taken to the police station and questioned by Detectives Garcia and Hackett. The first person Bree thinks of to help her is Gen, she calls her and the two women find themselves meeting up again much sooner than expected.
The story continues rapidly, with many twists and turns. Has the victim died of natural causes or is it as the two women suspect, a murder, and if so who has committed it? What is Vonnegon’s part in all this? Bree can’t make her mind up how she feels about him. The two women decide to take matters into their own hands and do some investigating for themselves. When the detectives realise that they can’t keep Bree and Gen out of the investigation, they join forces. Bree finds herself in mortal danger, but won’t listen to the detectives who try to keep her safe. This crime has rekindled her investigative journalism as she realises it could turn into a brilliant story. I don’t want to give the plot away, but suffice to say it is a very good story, well written and keeps you engrossed from beginning to end.
