Name: Death Turns a Trick
Reviews: 4.1 stars over 10
Description: Rebecca Schwartz, nice Jewish lawyer with a few too many fantasies, is happily playing the piano in a whorehouse when she suddenly finds herself assigned to make sure a near-naked state senator escapes a police raid. That dirty job done, a lovely evening turns even more delightful when she’s picked up by the cops and spends the next two hours at the Hall of Justice. Could this day get any worse? Of Course! Guess who arrives home to find a dead hooker on her living room floor?
Handsome Parker Phillips, Rebecca’s new beau and the most attractive man she’s met in ages, is arrested for the murder. (Worse, she suspects he might actually have done it.)
On the plus side, another very attractive man is following the case--reporter Rob Burns of the San Francisco Chronicle, a possible ally. And there are other possibilities.
Fans of Janet Evanovich, Joan Hess, and Elizabeth Peters will get a kick out of this one.
Reviews: "The writing is tight. Ms. Smith saves the sensory detail for the suspenseful moments when she wants to keep you teetering on the edge of your seat. The plot is free of hairpin twists and ridiculous feats, and the coincidences are lifelike. DEATH TURNS A TRICK is an unpretentious, fast-paced, fun read."
