Read A Review:

Alex St. James, a TV reporter in Chicago, comes home from a night of public humiliation by her former lover to find her elderly neighbor, Evelyn Vicks, has been murdered. Earlier that evening Mrs. Vicks had asked Alex for help with a financial situation. Feeling guilty from pushing her off, Alex does some investigating into Mrs. Vicks’ life.

She discovers Mrs. Vicks had been secretly looking into the lending practice’s of the banks she worked at. Mrs. Vicks’ son is soon hounding Alex because he was promised money from his mother and the bank won’t let him see her safe deposit box. Add to that the fact that Alex has been attacked and appears to be stalked, Alex knows she must help the police find her killer and fast.

I couldn’t put this book down. I kept picking it up to read another chapter to find out what happened. I loved Alex. She is such a great character. Her being a TV reporter really added to the story.

I can’t wait to read more in this series. I highly recommend this book! Just make sure you have lots of time to read as you’ll not want to put it down!
