"Buttressed by distinctive characters and a splendid Minnesota setting, the well-constructed plot builds to a satisfying conclusion."--"Publishers Weekly"

"Hart has consistently maintained a level of excellence throughout her eighteen Lawless mysteries. [She] never overplays Jane's lesbianism. It is just a fact of life in this truly engaging mystery series."--"Library Journal"

The shock that Minneapolis restaurateur Jane Lawless is in for when Chester Garrity, her ex-husband, returns to a city that he swore he'd never see again is nothing compared to Chester's own. After their divorce many years ago, he took off with his inheritance to travel the world, leaving Jane with enough seed money to open her first restaurant.

Now he's back and penniless, or as he would prefer to say, between fortunes. He's working an angle to make his next fortune by selling a priceless artifact recently looted from the Baghdad Museum, but it all falls through when he wakes up next to the dead body of his buyer with no memory of what happened the night before. Panicked, Chester flees the scene, eventually returning to cover his tracks only to find that someone has already taken care of that for him, but at what price?
