One minute Mia Quinn is in her basement, chatting on the phone with a colleague at the prosecutor's office. The next minute there's a gunshot over the line, and Mia listens in horror as her colleague and friend Colleen bleeds to death. Mia's a natural for heading up the murder investigation, but these days it's all she can do to hold her life together.

Now Detective Charlie Carlson is suggesting the very thing Mia doesn't want to believe - that her accountant husband's deadly car accident was no accident at all. When Mia and Charlie encounter resistance to reopening the case, they take the investigation into their own hands. And find much more than they bargained for. Was Mia's husband more than an accountant - and less than an honest man?
It should have been an open and shut murder case, but Mia Quinn finds out that nothing about it is simple. After a young Chinese prostitute is stabbed to death by her rich American client, the tabloids dub Dandan Yee "Lethal Beauty" - despite the fact that she was the one who ended up dead. Yet even with double standards and naked prejudice working against her, Seattle prosecutor Mia Quinn is determined to get justice for Dandan Yee.
