    When a blackmailed drag queen walks into Cal Corwin's P. I. agency, she quickly throws herself into the investigation, but with each new clue she finds the case gets murkier, its web of lies more tangled. When murder rears its ugly head, it becomes clear more is at stake than money, and Cal must watch her own back even as she tries to find the culprit.

    A murder in San Francisco's Tenderloin District is nothing new, but when ex-cop and P.I. Cal Corwin stumbles across the body of a witness she needs to find a runaway teenager, she finds the two cases inextricably entwined - and time is running out. Set against the rich backdrop of the San Francisco Bay Area, Cal Corwin stories brim with intrigue and fully fleshed characters from cops and criminals to hit men, oddball family, and unexpected allies.
