Overview

Lee Harms, investigator-for-hire, is on the cusp of an on-and-off-again love affair with confidante and astrologer Celeste when fate serves up a witch’s brew of trouble.

Start with a broth of sexual intrigue, toss in a troubled redhead, stir in two kilos of cocaine, dissolve a few pages from a psychiatrist’s notebook, and bring to a boil the fury of a crime family whose son dies in a midnight bacchanal. Money ignites the fire under this cauldron, but sex, violence and the darker forces of human nature keep it bubbling.

Political hopeful Dr Reynolds has already paid $50K to suppress a videotape of his daughter Liz in a lesbian porn flick; now there’s a second blackmail demand for $250K and promise of worse revelations to come. He wants her found and put on the next plane to England where she’ll go into rehab and put her life back together before she ruins his.

As Harms learns, she’s been living quite a life already – shoplifting, drug abuse, pornography, and maybe even prostitution. Everywhere he looks, he encounters the human archetypes of moral depravity, and every one of them warns him to drop the case before it gets too hot for him to handle. As dangerous as it gets, Harms must rely on his own wits to out-maneuver crack-crazed thugs, libidinous porn stars, and a deranged young woman with a troubled past. But when criminals kidnap his own ten-year-old daughter, he plunges into their underworld to rescue her from harm’s way.

    This book was terrific. It touched on every lowlife, criminal thing in the world. Lieing, cheating, stealing.kidnapping. rape. torture, murder,porn, snuff films, drugs, mafia. I probably missed some, but if its wonderful, it was covered in this book. I can't wait to finish the book even! I will definitely read another book by this author and will be keeping this book. Do not waste your time reading something else. If I could give more than five stars, I would.

    Get out of Harm's Way!

    This was a very well written book and it kept my interest all the way to the end. There was action, danger, intrigue, love, suspense, and just a great story line to boot. I believe I will read another of this author's books in the near future.
