Newly minted lawyer Corrie Locke has taken a vow of abstinence. From PI work, that is. Until her best friend Michael finds his bully of a boss stabbed in the back after confronting him earlier that day. Michael panics, accidentally tampering with the crime scene…which could lead the cops to Michael instead of the real culprit. He turns to Corrie to track down the killer. She doesn’t need much coaxing. Her late great PI dad taught her the ropes…and left her his cache of illegal weaponry.

They return to the scene of the crime, but the body’s missing. Racing against time, Corrie dredges a prestigious Los Angeles college in pursuit of clues. All she finds are false leads. Armed with attitude and romantic feelings toward Michael, Corrie dives into a school of suspects to find the slippery fugitive. Will she clear Michael’s name before he’s arrested for murder?

Christie’s Review


What a delightful, witty, and funny mystery!

Corrie Locke has newly become an attorney and has decided to take a break from PI work even though she loves it. However, that break doesn’t last long when her best friend, Michael, comes to her in trouble. He found his boss dead, but that isn’t all. He had an argument with him earlier, and he “might” have tampered with the evidence. So, the two go back and are completely surprised when his body is gone! The place is spotless, and this begins a hilarious quest to find the real culprit.

The storyline and the characters were just about perfect. There was no shortage of suspects, and Sideris’s writing style made the story flow well. She put in enough twists and turns to keep me guessing. Corrie is hysterical! She is smart and witty, but the opening scene of the book showed me she was also going to be quite funny as well.

I think Sideris also did a great job of building her characters and showing readers who they were. It was a great balance between telling us a story and helping us get to know her main characters. There is a hint of romance as well. I got the feeling that Corrie and Michael had more feelings for one another rather than friendship, and I don’t know how this will affect their friendship with each other and with their other friend, James. So, I’m quite looking forward to the next book in the series!
