As 'old blue eyes' said, "some things are better the second time around". Maybe so; then again maybe they're just more appreciated. A good example is Dianne Emley's "Cold Call" now available again after its original publication in the nineties. Iris Thorne, a hip and very attractive lady, has fashioned an admirable career as a stockbroker/financial adviser in LA. She is an accomplished professional and generally more mature than many of her colleagues who remain moored to the old boy network. Like most of us she has an issue or two and would be pleased if true romance would come her way, but, all in all, she's doing quite well. That is, until her work life is jolted suddenly and severely when Alley, the firm's impaired "gofer" is brutally murdered on the streets nearby her office. The cops, wanting to clear their files quickly, are disposed to chalking the murder up to some sort of routine drug deal gone bad, but Iris's judgment tells her otherwise. Her suspicions unweave a nasty web of deceit, money laundering and, not least,millions of dollars of customer funds missing. Rather au courant, eh? Along the way, old acquaintances are reconnected and seemingly strong relationships evolve in surprising, sometimes almost bizarre, ways. Quite quickly, she dopes out an ongoing cover-up and, in the process, becomes marked for a gangland-style "hit". The story is well told, sprinkled with enticing clues and unwinds with more than a few clever twists till its ultimate resolution.

..but not as good as Emley's Nan Vining books. I would read those first given the chance.
