ABOUT THE BOOK:
TO LIVE... AND DIE IN L.A.
Newly relocated Minx Tobin likes to help her friends. She also has a knack for solving puzzles. A huge puzzle in the form of a dead body soon gets dropped into her lap. Did waitress Brandi Evans murder her ex-boyfriend? Minx doesn't think so, but can she crack the Case of the Bloodstained Bistro?
Overworked Homicide Lieutenant Gabe Harris has his fill of women... and dead bodies. The women he can handle. The dead bodies -- unfortunately they keep piling up. But on this particular case he meets a young woman that not only impedes his investigation, but she also has no interest in him. A healthy ego like his can't handle that. He'll have to keep an eye on Ms. Minx Tobin.
The Tobin woman had been surprised by his offer of dinner, but not as surprised as he was himself. Gabe drove onto Santa Monica Boulevard all the while wondering what the hell he had been thinking.
She'd been right. Strictly speaking, he was mixing pleasure with official police business. Dynamite that was guaranteed to explode in his face.
He glanced over at his reluctant passenger. Sitting stiffly in the passenger seat, she held her handbag against her chest as if it were a shield offering protection.
Not that she'd need it against him. She wasn't his type. She was lean and athletic. He preferred his women to be of the buxom variety.
And, come to think of it, he might not be her type, either. She seemed to have a preference for Brandi Evans' company.
"Where are we going to eat?" Minx asked, turning her dark eyed gaze on him.
Minx. What a helluva name. She hadn't like it when he used it. Her plump lips had turned down imperceptibly. He'd noticed, though. It was his job to be observant.
