The Bad Always Die Twice

The Bad Always Die Twice
by Cheryl Crane

What a fun book to read! Nikki Harper is a tenacious amateur sleuth and faithful friend to Jessica Martin who is suspected of murdering of washed up TV actor Rex March. Nikki Harper is the daughter of screen goddess Victoria Bordeaux. Instead of following her mother's footsteps to stardom, Nikki became a successful real estate agent. Nikki and her partner, Jessica Martin, are a great team selling high-end homes in the Los Angeles area. Disaster strikes when a frantic Jessica calls Nikki and tells her that she found Rex dead in her bed. The only thing more shocking is that March supposedly died in a private plane crash six months before. Nikki and her mother work to find out who killed Rex and deposited him in Jessica's apartment. Even though there are no short of suspects (the second-rate actor was a first-class philander) the police have their sights set on Jessica. Nikki works to keep her friend out of prison.
