From Publishers Weekly
In McKevett's entertaining if predictable 11th Savannah Reid mystery (after 2005's Murder à la Mode
), the California PI teams up with her police buddy, Dirk Coulter, to locate the titular Suzette Du Bois, a prominent plastic surgeon who went missing right before the grand opening of her new salon and surgery, Emerge. Suzette's business partner and ex-husband is desperate to locate her, because she has absconded with his money—lots of it. Savannah and Dirk must crack an anonymous offshore account and make a quick trip to a swanky resort island in their hunt for answers. Folded into the intrigue is a bit of social commentary, as full-figured Savannah gently critiques a beauty industry that values thinness and angles over girth and curves. (May)
