Blood may be thicker than water, but family isn't necessarily who you're related to. In this suspenseful mystery with a romantic twist, we follow Private Investigator Michelle Mott on her most exciting case to date.
Wisecracking Mott has been a loner since her parents died. When Daniel Cardinale walks into her office with her most interesting case yet, his world threatens to turn hers upside down. He needs her to find out who is sending him anonymous money and what the truth is behind his dead fiancé's demise. If his case weren't complicating her life enough, local crime lord Gino Salito has taken an interest in Mott.
Mott's empty life begins to fill up with an unexpected and rag-tag group of people, and she's afraid her dangerous life will take them away, leaving her alone once again.
In truth, it's Mott's life that may be the one at risk. She'll have to hope that blood isn't always thicker than water.
