Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0425161404, Mass Market Paperback)Simultaneous publication (what a coincidence!) of her first book, Bloody Waters, in paperback and her second in hardcover gives readers a double chance to discover the delights of this Cuban-American private detective, who comes from a wealthy family, drives a Mercedes, carries a Beretta, and spends a lot of her time trying to fix the bad things that happen to Cubans in Miami. Carolina Garcia-Aguilera, herself a Cuban-born private investigator and M. B. A., makes sure that both books contain just the right seasoning of local color and personal moments in their strongly plotted stories. This one finds Lupe trying to clear a local jeweler in the death of a would-be assailant. As in her first outing, things soon become personal.

A Miami storekeeper shoots a robber armed with a knife. The knife is nowhere to be found and the law considers six shots excessive self-defense, which means the storekeeper could go to jail. The storekeeper's lawyer hires lady PI Lupe Solano to obtain evidence that the robber was indeed a robber, a task that almost gets her killed. By the author of Bloody Waters.
