Lithe, leggy attorney and law professor Marla Cwitowitz is dying for some excitement in her life--that is, other than being the girlfriend of Al Giraud, private detective, sexy soul mate, and all-around best friend. So when she sees the potential for a crime-solving spree, she jumps at the chance to moonlight as a detective. According to the evening news, local real estate agent Laurie Martin is missing and presumed dead. Marla and Al happened to have seen her dining with an attractive man several days before her disappearance. The man is Steve Mallard, loyal husband, doting father, and prime suspect. But Marla senses that something is not quite right. And her intuition has never let her down. Believing that there's more to the story than meets the eye, she takes matters into her own hands, vowing to get to the bottom of what's beginning to look like a very complex case. Al wants Marla to stay out of the way, fearing for her safety. He knows what's involved in detective work, and he's not sure she can hold her own as an investigator. But she won't be warned off this case. Their relationship has never been more fraught with complications--or sexual sizzle. With little warning or preparation, the two find themselves crisscrossing the United States in frantic pursuit of a remorseless criminal in an effort to prove Mallard's innocence. Finally Marla's found the excitement she's been looking for. With her, it's always been all or nothing.
When a pretty real estate agent is killed, cops suspect her last client, a respectable family man. Marla, an attorney who wants to become a private eye, believes the man is innocent and teams up with her sexy boyfriend to prove his innocence. The evidence they find changes everything they believe about the case.

Bored with the law, attorney Marla Cwitowitz wants to become a private eye, teamed up with Al Giraud-ex-cop, ex-smoker, and sexy boyfriend. She has stars in her eyes, big dreams, and a belief that the man accused is innocent. Streetwise, cynical Giraud isn't so sure. But soon Marla and Al stumble on evidence that changes everything they once believed about this case. For as they close in on the elusive killer, they come face-to-face with a chilling truth-one that could break this case wide open...or cost them both their lives....
