Description

New York Times bestselling author Janet Evanovich praised bestselling author Rhonda Pollero’s first mystery Knock Off as “a great read with plenty of attitude!” Now paralegal Finley Anderson Tanner (F.A.T. to her enemies) is back for another sizzling adventure under the West Palm Beach sun...



Finley knows it can’t be good news when she’s awakened at 5:40 a.m. by someone knocking on her door. Her hunch proves correct. Finley’s pal Jane is hysterical and clad only in a negligee. It all started when Jane went out on a blind date the previous night with a hunk named Paolo—and ended when she woke up next to his corpse. Finley knows Jane wouldn't hurt a fly, especially one with a zipper. Too bad the police don't agree...



Having survived her own ordeal of questioning and criminally bad coffee at the local cop shop, Finley's got to post bail and hire an attorney for Jane. But with most of her cash tied up in credit card debt, she knows she has to do the unthinkable: hit her mother up for money. As if attempting to thaw out the Ice Queen isn't hard enough, there's the unthinkable, part II: resisting McGarrity. Yes, dangerously sexy P.I. Liam McGarrity has offered his services...for a discounted rate. To prove her theory that Jane and Paolo were drugged by the real killer, Finley will have to buckle down and work with Liam. She’ll just have to remind herself that she already has the perfect boyfriend in her FedEx pilot Patrick.



But this case is booby-trapped with more serious pitfalls than wicked temptation. For starters, there's the fact that two knives were used to kill Paolo. Then there's a suspicious string of robberies. And when someone tries to run Finley's car off the road, she’s got to act quick to find a killer who wants to see her underground...
