From the Back:
McPherson was the toughest cop in town, and he knew too much about too many women. When beauties like Laura were tragically murdered, all McPherson mourned was his loss of sleep.
But Laura was unique. Everyone who knew her, loved her. And as McPherson probed her private world-her diary, her intimate letters, her perfumes, and sensuous silks-he couldn't figure out who would want to kill her or why.
One thing, though, became very clear to McPherson as the investigation proceeded: the toughest cop of all had fallen in love-with a dead girl.
