Your best friend
Lindsay Boxer is pregnant at last! But her work doesn't slow for a second. When millionaire Chaz Smith is mercilessly gunned down, she discovers that the murder weapon is linked to the deaths of four of San Francisco's most untouchable criminals. And it was taken from her own department's evidence locker. Anyone could be the killer--even her closest friends.

Or a vicious killer? 

Lindsay is called next to the most bizarre crime scene she's ever seen: two bodiless heads elaborately displayed in the garden of a world-famous actor. Another head is unearthed in the garden, and Lindsay realizes that the ground could hide hundreds of victims.

You won't know until the 11th hour 

A reporter launches a series of vicious articles about the cases and Lindsay's personal life is laid bare. But this time she has no one to turn to--especially not Joe.

Pregnancy has mellowed Lindsay out some because she wasn't nearly as annoying as she usually is.  And since there was no case being tried I wasn't annoyed with Yuki either.

So all around, it was better than the last book.

The two cases that Lindsay and Rich are working on are just okay.  There's someone killing drug dealers out there and you have a hard time really caring if that murderer gets caught or not.  He's not delusional, he's not taking out innocent people.  So there's that.

The other case is weird and everything is sort of out of left field and unexpected, but then I just felt kind of deflated.  Like the killer's motives weren't interesting enough after all that drama.

But still, it was a quick, fun read.  Great little escape!
