When art chick?cum?sleuth Sam Jones groggily awakens to find her wrists chained to a ceiling plank in a cockroach-infested basement, she knows that her blackout, pounding headache, and body restraints are not the results of a drunken encounter with some S&M freak. No, she?s been kidnapped in a case of mistaken identity, plucked right off a TV production set where she?s been working as a stunt double on a hot new miniseries with her boyfriend, Hugo. And when a chum?s boyfriend turns up dead, it?s clear that the kidnappers have more than pranks on their minds. If she doesn?t watch her back, she?ll end up topping the endangered species list. Will Sam crack the case before the body count rises?
Lauren Henderson fans will delight in this new adventure for the brassy, lovable, kick-ass detective in stilettos. And mystery lovers who crave an irreverent, murderously funny heroine will find themselves Sam Jones converts before they reach the thrilling conclusion of this uproarious romp through ?tart noir? territory.
