Eve Moran has always wanted 'things', and has proven both inventive and tenacious in getting and keeping them. She lies, steals, cheats, swindles, and finally commits murder, paying little heed to the cost of her actions on those who love her.

Shot in Detroit by Patricia Abbott( )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 25 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Violet Hart is a photographer who has always returned to cobble out a life for herself in the oddly womblike interiors of Detroit. Nearing forty, she's keenly aware that the time for artistic recognition is running out. When her lover, Bill, a Detroit mortician, needs a photograph of a body, she agrees to take the picture. It's an artistic success and Violet is energized by the subject matter, persuading Bill to allow her to take pictures of some of his other "clients," eventually settling on photographing young, black men. When Violet's new portfolio is launched, she quickly strikes a deal, agreeing to produce a dozen pictures with a short deadline, confident because dead bodies are commonplace in Detroit and she has access to the city's most prominent mortician. These demands soon place Violet in the position of having to strain to meet her quota."

"Bouchercon has been the annual gathering-in of mystery readers and writers, all of us fans of the genre, since the very first event in 1970 in Santa Monica, California. In 2014, Bouchercon celebrates a return to the California beach, this time Long Beach, with an anthology of short stories by a roster of talented writers. You'll never think of sun, sand, or picnics the same way again. All proceeds from this anthology support the Long Beach Public Library Foundation. As writers, readers, and fans, we know how important a strong vibrant library system is. No matter what we write or read, across category and genre, we all agree on this: librarians rock!" --
