    Usually sharp-witted editor Sam Clair stumbles through her post-launch-party morning with the hangover to end all hangovers.

When the grisly news breaks that the fire has claimed a victim, Sam is already in pursuit. Never has comedy been so deadly as Sam faces down a pair from Thugs "R" Us, aided by nothing more than a CID boyfriend, a stalwart Goth assistant and a seemingly endless supply of broccoli.
