Fresh from her sensational debut in Everything You Have Is Mine, private eye Lauren Laurano is back. Petite, attractive, hip, cholesterol-conscious, and gay, Lauren isn't your typical private detective. She shares a brownstone apartment with her psychologist lover, Kip, in New York's fashionable Greenwich Village, where they are surrounded by a circle of warm friends who keep them well insulated from the craziness of city life. But when Lauren's closest childhood friend, Megan Harbaugh, is murdered in her West Village jewelry store, the illusion of protection is instantly shattered. Lauren is hired by one of Megan's former husbands to investigate the crime, which propels her on several searches at once. The first is personal. Not only must Lauren come to grips with her best friend's death, but she finds herself questioning just how well she really knew Megan, who, though straight herself, was the first person to accept Lauren's lesbianism. While the list of suspects grows and the danger mounts, Lauren also begins wondering how well she knows anyone as she uncovers one startling surprise after another about her friends - and herself.

I found this book to be a really enjoyable read. The characters are complex without being tideous and the left field sarcasm keeps the story flowing from tragidy to mystery to romance. Especially enjoyable if you're a New Yorker
