The story begins with the death of Camilla Rothrock, while lunching with her gal friends. Who would do this to a little old lady? Lucci has crafted a conspiracy theory, complete with two dastardly characters - Boris and Snake who are determined to take out a town using Boris' deadly mix of poisons. They're both crazy as loons and just make your skin crawl!
Michaela McPherson, her sidekick lovable canine Angel work savagely, along with the suave sexy detective Slade to try and find out who, why and how.
Aside from Mich, I think Dottie is my favorite character. She's a haughty, loveable sleuth who bring humor and smiles to the story and we find she is unyielding in her attempts to help the case.
If you're looking for a good medical mystery, laced with a little humor and endearing characters, then I urge you to grab Judith Lucci's newest jewel. Bravo Ms. Lucci! (Now when are Slade and Mich gonna hook up?)
This is a fast paced easy reading book. The villains who have a much bigger disaster planned are so bad they're easy to hate. Judith Lucci's character development is excellent. She really brings her characters to life. The danger builds to an exciting finish and I'm ready to read the third book. Very enjoyable reading experience.
Michaela McPherson, was once a Richmond, Virginia, homicide detective. This is one of those professions that never leaves your blood. Once a detective, always a detective.
Thought this was a fast-paced novel with some intriguing character development. And, there was an array of delightful characters to keep the reader's interest.
Could this streak of murders be domestic terrorism or is it something else?
Most highly recommended.

From the very first paragraphs, author Lucci plunges the reader into the tranquil world of well-to-do Richmond citizens, creating a comfortable interlude which lulls us into complacency and serves to heighten the terrible events that follow. Lucci’s choice of a particularly dastardly means of dealing death where anyone could be the victim, and her creation of evil personified as the main perpetrator sends thrills through the tale as the investigators race to prevent more deaths. Additionally, one of the bad guys from the first novel in the series also plays a major role in this one too and readers need to keep a close eye on him throughout.
This is an outstanding second book in what is quickly shaping up to be a must-read series for all lovers of modern detective fiction. Lucci’s balance of intriguing in-depth, quirky characters and gritty storylines will keep you turning pages late into the night. Highly recommended.
