My name is Kinsey Milhone. I'm a private investigator, licensed by the State of California. I'm thirty-two years old, twice divorced, no kids. The day before yesterday I killed someone and the fact weighs heavily on my mind . . .
The new client waiting in Kinsey’s corridor is an old acquaintance, Nikki Fife, who’s looking for help that only a detective can provide. For whoever killed her husband, it wasn’t Nikki. But if his wife isn’t the murderer, someone else is. . .
