When a security specialist for Roarke Enterprises is framed for murder, Eve Dallas takes the case and finds it full of red herrings. She and her elite crew of techno-geeks follow each one, human and electronic, to cull truth from appearance. After gulps of real coffee and meals that include real beef served up by the charming Roarke on his new barbeque, they close on this complicated case. Characters continue to develop as Eve and Roarke face a crisis in their marriage, Peabody imitates Eve as she comes to terms with her new job, and the mysterious candy thief continues to rob Eve of her chocolate with impunity. Filled with humor and tension, this is another enjoyable mystery read by the talented and skilled Susan Ericksen; her range of voices and accents and ability to pull each character in without missing a beat bring listeners to the center of the story and leave them wanting more.
