Will her private eye class give Lacey a shot at the serious "hard news" beat she's been longing for? Or will it give a hardened killer a shot at her?« less
The thing I like about Lacey is that she's always reasonable and down-to-earth. She has some odd friends and co-workers, but she never acts like she is any different, even though she is.

This installment of the series started off a little slow for me, there seemed to be a lot of set-up, but it all came together in the end for another great story.
