Regular readers of the Savannah Reid series will know who Dr. Jennifer Liu is. She’s the coroner who loves chocolate, is more than OCD, and although her work is with dead bodies, she’s a fashionista. To see her at the door, distraught, is enough to make Savannah panic.

On top of Dr. Liu’s problem, which is a sizable one, Dirk is being secretive. They’ve promised no secrets between them, so why is he getting phone calls he doesn’t explain, making appointments he won’t talk about, and taking all the overtime he can get?

Dr. Liu wasn’t entirely honest in an autopsy report on her friend. Liu had her reasons, but it could get her license revoked. Now she’s discovered the unusual method of her friend’s death wasn’t that unusual after all. There have been others. It looks like the report should have read, Cause of Death: Murder.

This is book twenty-four in the series. Savannah has come a long way. She now lives in San Carmelita and is married. To Dirk. Their partnership had that unexpected outcome. He’s not the most romantic guy, but he’s there when needed and that counts for a lot. Expect the usual antics plus a lot more as Savannah and Dirk’s lives move forward—with a little help from their friends.
