Boston''s favorite redheaded P.I., Carlotta Carlyle, thinks she''s doing a friend a favor when she agrees to burglarproof the elderly recluse''s apartment. But when the woman turns up dead, Carlotta finds herself with entertainment moguls and real estate magnates breathing down her neck--and plenty of unanswered questions.
From the Publisher:
Carlotta Carlyle's newest case begins when the redheaded private detective helps burglar proof the apartment of an old woman, who is promptly murdered, plunging Carlotta into a murderous maelstrom of real-estate tycoons and entertainment big-shots. Reprint.

When six-foot redhead ex-cop and Boston-based private investigator Carlotta Carlyle agrees to help an elderly recluse burglar-proof her apartment, the last thing she expected was that the woman would turn up dead. Now Carlotta must find out why the eccentric yet seemingly harmless Valentine Phipps isolated herself?and needed protection.

Who would want to hurt Valentine? What was she hiding behind closed doors? Is there a connection between her murder and an age-old mystery that the city?s top brass?and its real-estate moguls?want to keep buried? But the most troubling question of all involves the victim?s home health aide, Gwen: Why did she introduce Valentine to Carlotta in the first place? The race to catch one of Boston?s most ruthless and ambiguous criminals has just begun?.

Author Bio
Linda Barnes
Linda Barnes first received critical praise in 1986, when she introduced her most popular crime solver, Carlotta Carlyle. A tall, guitar-playing, taxi-driving ex-cop and private investigator, Carlyle first appeared in a short story called "Bad Penny". Carlyle, like many of Barnes's characters, is known for her vivacious sense of humor and her wry, ironic outlook on life. Barnes graduated from Boston University with a B.F.A., taught theater in Massachusetts from 1971 to 1978, and married computer expert Richard Barnes. Among many awards she has received throughout her career, she won an Anthony Award for best short stories, and an American Mystery Award for best private eye novel.
