even the toughest cases. But her latest investigation is
leaving her hungry for answers as she tries to unmask the
identity of a cunning, would-be killer. His prey? A famous

As the creator of the world-famous Helene doll, legendary
designer Helene Strauss is equally well-known for her
exquisite taste and her brassy, take-no-prisoners style.
While Heleneâ€™s business acumen made her a huge success, it
also made her a quite a few enemies. So when the feisty
80-year-old has several suspicious brushes with death,
Savannah Reid is hired to find out why.
Once on the case, Savannah quickly learns that tensions
within the Strauss family have been raging for years. To
Heleneâ€™s chagrin, her niece and arch nemesis, Ava, has

be surrounded by friends and family bent on inheriting her
fortune by any means necessary. Before long, Savannah is
sure she has a handle on the case. But when two key players
turn up dead in Heleneâ€™s sizzling hot Jacuzzi, Savannah will
have to start from scratchâ€”and question everything she
thought she knew about the Straussâ€™s twisted family treeâ€¦
