Assume nothing—that's the touchstone for every homicide investigation Detective Davie Richards undertakes. She approaches her latest case the same way, determined to learn as much about the victim as she does about the killer. But there's nothing about thirty-four-year-old Sara Montaine or her death that makes sense.
"Smiley's prose is like butter, and she depicts her major and minor characters with a keen eye for the telling detail... while the plot hums along like Tucker in her snazzy Porsche Boxster. These elements plus a rich melange of supporting characters make for an amusing and satisfying read." —Paula Woods, The Washington Post
