The Ludlows are a family of successful personal injury lawyers, except for Fina. Fina rebelled by flunking out of law school, her father retaliated by putting her to work in his firm doing odd jobs. Here Fina found her true calling working for the firm's private investigator, Frank Gillis. Under Frank's tutelage she got her license and she took his place when Frank changed jobs.When the book opens, her brother's wife, Melanie, is missing. Rand quickly becomes the main suspect because he and Melanie had a difficult marriage. Fina's job is to find out what happened to Melanie. Fina's interactions with her family, lovers and friends bring the book to life. This is a well-written debut. -- recommended by Donna G. - Virtual Services Department [If you enjoy this, you may also wish to try the works of Linda Barnes, Sue Grafton and Marcia Muller.]
