Publisher's Summary

Private eye Kate Brannigan confronts betrayal and cold-blooded greed as she investigates the alien world of medical experimentation and the underbelly of the rock music business. 

Kate Brannigan’s having a bad week. Her boyfriend’s death notice is in the paper, her plan to catch a team of fraudsters is in disarray and a neo-punk band want her to find out who’s trashing their flyposters. And her business partner wants her to buy him out. Fine, but private eyes with principles never have that kind of cash.

Kate can’t even cry on her best friend’s shoulder, for Alexis has her own worries. Her girlfriend’s pregnant, and when their fertility doctor is murdered, Alexis needs Kate like she’s never done before. Delving into the world of medical experimentation and the underbelly of the rock-music business, Kate confronts betrayal and greed as she fights to save not only her livelihood but her life as well....

Really dull

This was incredibly boring. I persisted to nearly the end but it wasn’t worth it. The narration lacked light and shade but even with better narration I think it would still be a very very tedious story.
