From back cover:
After a year's leave of absence in New York, Det Inspector Amanda Valentine is looking forward to life in the slow lane in New Zealand. Instead she returns just in time for the most sensational homicide of the year.
The body of Sybil Knight, daughter of a former Ambassador to the United States, has been found trussed and battered in a private room in a lesbian sex club.
The potential for scandal surrounding Sybil's death considerably complicates Amanda's investigation. She finds herself between a voracious media and a powerful family determined to cover up the facts.
Sybil had many secret, and as many enemies, Alistair Gray, who believed that Sybil stole a prestigious job rightfully his. Notorious sex club owner Casey Randall. Sybil's homophobic brother, David Jordan, who would not accept Sybil's indifference toward him. And even partner Kim, who suspected an affair between Sybil and her therapist.
And as for the therapist... Dr. Marlene Friedman is in far more danger than she dreams. Because she is the key to all of Sybil's Secrets.
Ride along with this unusual, engaging cop on her latest case. You'll love Amanda Valentine's unique brand of police procedure.
