Laura Hamilton wakes up one morning only to find out a dead body inside her apartment. It was, after all, her ex-coworker, “Velcro” Hodges, a debt collector who was known to leech on his prey until the debt is already paid in full. But why was he dropped insider Laura’s room?
Now someone wants Laura to be dead. As the plot thickens, Laura tries to find out on who could possibly want her dead next. Lead Detective Inspector Jeff Gibbons helps her, tracking any leads he gets, but that doesn’t seem to help solve the puzzle.
Great first book in a series.
I couldn’t imagine waking up to find a corpse on the floor of my living room or any room for that matter. Laura, who has a job she detests, finds her dead boss in her living room and inserts herself into the investigation.
In this book, we also meet Gerry Fitz and Det. Jeff Gibbon, who become an integral part of her life in this series.
Vaughan’s book is full of mystery and humor, and that’s what I love about them. I highly recommend this, and all the books of the series.
