Publisher's Summary

The man in my office held a dark secret, a secret to kill for. That man was Tony Ryland, husband of local madam, Maria de Costa. Unfortunately for me, truth and justice, Tony Ryland was dead.

What was Ryland doing in my office? Who had murdered him? What was the nature of his dark secret? The trail led to Ryland's wife, Maria de Costa, to her network of prostitutes and clients. Questions led to evasive answers, and more deaths.

Someone was out to muddy the waters, to distort the truth, to bury the secret along with Tony Ryland. As I probed and prodded, I placed myself, family, and friends in danger. Ultimately, Ryland's murder left me with a question: What is of greater value, love, or the truth?

Smoke and Mirrors, a tale of treachery, of duplicity and cover-ups, the story of a scandal that simmers within our society.

Relaxing read

This was my first book by this author. I like how even though it is a series, the book can also stand alone. You don't have to have read all the ones before to know what is going on in this story. The style of narration was different than what I am used to, but once I settled into it I enjoyed listening. I think I'm going to check out other books by this author.

Was very good read. Narrator pulls you right in.

Very nice mystery, with a strong female leading character. Narrator's voice was perfect for the story.
