In Waltham, Massachusetts attorney Susan Callisto becomes a political consultant.  Susan finds her clients to be pieces of work as she holds Roddie Baird’s hand as he needs help with everything he does.  At the same Callisto practices law helping restaurant owner Nino Biondi in a suit with his landlord Peter Lombard.


However, her third client Charles “Chaz” Renfro offers her $20,000 to help him in a last second run for the office of the mayor of Telford.  However, her three clients are difficult enough, but the murder of Renfro’s assistant Tori Moran and assaults on Biondi and Callisto make her wonder if she gave up more than just financial security when she left the prestigious Boston law firm.  Her former boyfriend State Detective Lieutenant Michael Benedict investigates the homicide and the attacks.


The first Susan Callisto amateur sleuth is an entertaining twisting tale as each time the heroine feels she is about to solve the situation, a new spin occurs.  Fast-paced with a strong protagonist and solid support cast, fans will enjoy the political consultant learning a “You Can’t Take It With You” lesson about money, power and clients.
