From Publishers' Weekly:

Lonely Jane Lawless never seems to catch a break in the love department, as shown by Hart's twisty 17th whodunit to feature the Minneapolis restaurateur and part-time PI (after 2008's Sweet Poison). Jane gives a temporary job to bartender Annie Andrews, who's come from Colorado in search of her stepfather, John Archer, whom Annie blames for her mother's death years before. Jane, who's attracted to the bisexual Annie, discovers that John has changed his name to Jack Bowman, who owns DreamScape Builders in the Twin Cities. The mystery deepens after Susan, Jack's second wife, is found murdered by a blow to the head by Susan's depressed son, Curt, who's also attracted to Annie. Jane and her best friend, Cordelia Thorne, begin investigating Annie's troubled past. As Annie's search for answers hurtles to a close, the tragic deceptions concocted by John/Jack explode in a grand finale with disturbing consequences. (Nov.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC.

From Library Journal:

When Annie Archer turns up at Minneapolis's Xanadu Club, its owner, lesbian restaurateur and amateur sleuth Jane Lawless (Sweet Poison), offers her a job and takes on the task of finding Annie's long-missing father. Verdict The Lambda Literary Award- and Minnesota Book Award-winning author of 16 Jane Lawless mysteries knows how to spin a tale full of complex plot lines, fast-paced action, and characters skilled in deception. Fans of the Lawless series and readers who enjoy gay/lesbian mysteries will not be disappointed. (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
