Paralegal Harlin pulls out all the stops in this witty, catty and romantic mystery debut. Carol Frank, a legal secretary who merrily riffs on the petty personalities and turf wars in her Kansas City law firm, adores her kindly, obsessive-compulsive boss, Bill Nestor. Then sexy police detective Gus Haglund starts inquiring about Adrienne Maxwell, a widow whose suicide may have been murder. Maxwell wasn't the first woman to kill herself after having Bill draft her will, and his exhaustive case notes include suspiciously detailed data about security systems. Carol's investigation turns up further evidence implicating Bill, but how can she betray the best boss she's ever worked for, even to a romantic cop who knows numerous uses for handcuffs? Harlin's memorable, entertaining characters populate a well-crafted mystery that keeps readers guessing to the end. (Apr.)Copyright © Reed Business Information, a division of Reed Elsevier Inc.
