Glassblower Emmeline Dowell has made a home for herself among the artists of Tucson’s Warehouse District. Between teaching her craft and selling her wares, she has plenty to do—not to mention the occasional murder that shatters her routine.
When Emmeline is asked to help out on a commission for the enigmatic software mogul Peter Ferguson, she finds it hard to say no. It doesn’t hurt that Peter is much better looking than the average computer nerd, or that he’s giving her the opportunity to work on his multi-million dollar stained glass collection. Em thinks she’s hit the artistic jackpot--until she finds the glass missing, and its owner dead in a pool of blood.
Next thing Em knows, she’s been accused of murder and her police chief boyfriend is questioning her as the prime suspect. Now she has to solve the murder and find the stolen glass, before the life she’s forged cracks into a million pieces.
