Sophie Katz's relationship with the irresistible and occasionally insufferable P.I. Anatoly Darinsky is on the fritz when a friend recruits Sophie's investigation skills to decode her possibly two-timing husband's strange behavior. When Sophie shows up in a short, red cocktail dress and her friend's hubby winds up dead, the loveable would-be sleuth can't help but take on the job.
Suddenly plunged into a crazy world of campaign mudslinging, dirt-digging, and cover-ups, Sophie begins to uncover some pretty dirty secrets indeed, involving a conservative congressional hopeful's involvement in the Furry community, a group of people who dress up in mascot-size stuffed animal costumes. Sex and politics, wouldn't you know?
Way in over her head as usual, Sophie reluctantly, or not-so-reluctantly, enlists the help of her two-time sidekick and ex, Anatoly. Together they set out to determine who killed Eugene and why, and in the process can't resist falling for each other...again?
Kyra hits one out of the park again!
This series is fantastic. I love all of the books in the "Sophie series, but this is a definite favorite. If you haven't read any of the series, start on the first book "sex, lies, and a double latte". You won't regret it. This book can stand alone, but you will miss some GREAT one liners!
