Abstract:

Anna quit the London police force because it was a dead end for women, but her job with Brierly Security isn{u2019}t a whole lot livelier. Her boss doesn{u2019}t much approve of female investigators, and her assignments tend toward the frustratingly genteel. The Jackson case doesn{u2019}t look like a big improvement. Ambitious, unpleasant young Deirdre Jackson has died, the apparent victim of a car accident on a lonely stretch of highway, and her parents want to know what their black-sheep daughter was up to in her last few months. Anna{u2019}s job, she knows, is to ask a few questions, write a report, and collect the Jacksons{u2019} check. But the more questions she asks about Dee{u2019}s life, the more questions arise about her death. Answering them could land Anna in the hospital . . . or the morgue. But it could also be her ticket out of the pink-collar ghetto. -- Publisher.
