Publisher's Summary

Sophie Katz's relationship with the irresistible and occasionally insufferable P.I. Anatoly Darinsky is on the fritz when a friend recruits Sophie's investigation skills to decode her possibly two-timing husband's strange behavior. When Sophie shows up in a short, red cocktail dress and her friend's hubby winds up dead, the loveable would-be sleuth can't help but take on the job.

Suddenly plunged into a crazy world of campaign mudslinging, dirt-digging, and cover-ups, Sophie begins to uncover some pretty dirty secrets indeed, involving a conservative congressional hopeful's involvement in the Furry community, a group of people who dress up in mascot-size stuffed animal costumes. Sex and politics, wouldn't you know?

Way in over her head as usual, Sophie reluctantly, or not-so-reluctantly, enlists the help of her two-time sidekick and ex, Anatoly. Together they set out to determine who killed Eugene and why, and in the process can't resist falling for each other...again?

Solve another case with Sophie.

    "why bother?"

    For someone who is supposedly smart and sassy, the lead character just comes across as monumentally stupid and arrogant. I managed to listen for 2 hours and gave it up in disgust! Thank goodness I bought this book on sale! With so many great heroines out there, why waste your time and money on someone like Sophie?!

    "I loved it!"

    I've read all three of the books in this series and they are fantastic! This author is hilarious and still manages to keep the suspense! And I actually look for books read by Gabra Zackman now because I love the way she narrates as well

    "More fabulous work from Kyra Davis"

    Kyra Davis rounds out her Sophie Katz trilogy with another suspenseful, sexy story. Fans of Davis' previous work won't be disappointed and Gabra Zachman continues to provide humorous, varied narration. An excellent read or listen!

    "Great title, awful book"

    What a waste of time and money. At first I thought it was just that the narrator sounded like a cross between a bored phone sex worker and an upper class socialite but as the book progressed the story did not. It was just plain (and painfully) stupid. I figured out who the bad guy was the moment his character was introduced. Then kept listening because I thought there was no way it could be that simple, there was 3/4 of the book left, he must be a red herring. But no, it is the title that is a red herring.

    "This series should have an age appropriate warning"

    I wish I’d never listened to this book.

    This book is pure filth. Do not let your youngsters read this.

    Not only is this writer once again, portraying Christians as evil hypocrites, but with this low story, she now makes the trio of dominatrix, gay friend, and idiot, look absolutely normal. I just didn’t want to read about the sexually perverted needing stuffed animals for intimate companions. Ugh, I need my mind washed out with soap!

    Don’t waste your money.
