Publisher Comments:

Kinsey Millhone, employed by Nord Lafferty to drive his daughter home from her incarceration at the Californian Institute for Women, marvels at the simplicity of the task. But Reba Lafferty emerges feisty and rebellious, and Kinsey is soon fighting to prevent her charge from breaking the conditions of her parole.

As she finds herself befriending the ex-gambler, ex-alcoholic and ex-con, Kinsey discovers that Reba had taken the fall for her boss, also her lover, when he conducted a highly-crafted money laundering scam. Alan Beckwith has so far escaped the clutches of the FBI. Now they believe he is laundering money for a Columbian drug cartel - they just need the proof.

When Kinsey is asked by the police to persuade Reba to unveil crucial evidence guaranteed to put Beckwith behind bars, she doesn't expect cooperation. But when she hears of shocking new information about her lover, Reba is suddenly all too eager to do everything she can to ruin him.

Embroiled in a cunning challenge of wits, and meanwhile bemused by her own blossoming romance, Kinsey must try to control the bitter, angry Reba as she launches her dangerous revenge . . .

Synopsis:

Nord Lafferty contrata los servicios de la detective Kinsey Millhone para un trabajo sencillo y bien remunerado: custodiar a Reba, su unica y rebelde hija, que esta a punto de conseguir la libertad condicional tras cumplir dos anos de condena por estafa. Kinsey debera llevarla de la carcel, a casa y asegurarse de que se reintegra a su vida acomodada. Pero Reba Lafferty no es una chica facil: bebedora empedernida, fumadora compulsiva, jugadora impenitente y adicta a todo tipo de vicios. Para complicarle aun mas las cosas a Kinsey, la misma noche en que sale de la carcel, Reba se reencuentra con Alan Beckwith, el hombre que fue a la vez su victima y su verdugo: ella lo estafo y el la denuncio. Pero el pasado no ha hecho mella en los sentimientos de la ex convicta, que, despues de una separacion forzosa, quiere reanudar su pasion con el mismo ardor de otros tiempos.
