The award-winning author of Dupe offers a mystery filled with "spare prose, lively dialogue, and a beautiful sense of time and place" (Sara Paretsky), featuring street-smart, tart-tongued, English P.I. Anna Lee. On the trail of some stolen sweater designs, Anna winds up in the Florida Keys, where a mob-style execution and a drugged teenaged runaway tell her she's in for more than haute couture.
