1950s TV star Rex March is found dead in the bed of realtor Jessica Martin.  Known for her sexual proclivity with living hunks, Jessica is stunned to have a corpse of her former lover in her bed. Rex was reported dead six months ago.  The police name her the prime suspect.

 

Jessica’s partner Nikki Harper, daughter of movie legend Victoria Bordeaux, investigates the case as she knows her friend would not kill anyone.  Nikki is extremely nice to those she interviews as she drops her mom the siren’s name on start struck Hollywood and charms information out of those she feels might have a motive to see Rex dead twice in under a year.

 

This is a fun entertaining amateur sleuth as Nikki tosses her DNA as the opener to meet suspects and then deploys her considerable charm (more DNA) to obtain info.  The mother-daughter relationship brings jocularity and warmth to the well written story line.  However, this is Nikki’ tale as she makes the murder mystery fun to read with her gutsy ballsy feminist inquiries.
