Donna Huston Murrayabout this book: Cancer survivor and former cop, Lauren Beck, accepts work as an insurance investigator just as her best friend and landlady, Corinne, becomes dangerously ill. At the funeral, Corinne's daughter, Nina, stuns the congregation by blaming Lauren for her mother's death. Soon Lauren finds herself with no credit, cash, phone, home, or credibility. Coincidence, or Nina? Has one of the insureds whose fraud she exposed taken revenge? Or has someone arranged for her to appear even more guilty of murder? While Lauren scrambles to learn who is ruining her life, a woman who might have answers turns up dead after Lauren was seen outside her door. Now there is no other option. Lauren must hunt down a greed-crazed killer as if her life depends on it.
