Interesting characters, fast action. Good, quick read.
(From back cover) Chalk it up to the heat...or to hormones, but when San Francisco P.I. Aileen Douglass catches the sexy young Gyspy man trying to hot-wire her car, she doesn't call the cops. Instead she gives him a lift into Oakland...and lands herself in a twisted case of murder.
Nick inhabits the strange world of the Romany, a dangerous one, as Aileen learns, when she stumbles across a dead fortune-teller, then dodges a hail of bullets. Next, Aileen's only paying client--a jilted fiance searching for his missing bride--is murdered, her office ransacked and her partner drugged, and she discovers these cases are connected...by a missing $100,000.
Tough and resourceful, but a sucker for a gorgeous young man in distress, Aileen's got more than a professional interest in the case. Luckily love--unlike murder--isn't fatal... She hopes.
