"Jeri combines V.I.'s social conscience with Kinsey's badass attitude and a snappy narrative voice..."
-Maureen Corrigan, Washington Post Book World
Jeri's as savvy as Sam Spade, with something of Spade's seen-it-all outlook. She handles the daily bread and butter without breaking a sweat, and she's got the street smarts to handle the bad guys, always managing somehow to land a well-deserved punch. What she doesn't know, her chic lawyer pal, Cassie, can supply; and her cop ex-husband's on hand to make trouble.
