"A fun and feisty heroine" (Janet Evanovich, author of Lean Mean Thirteen) stars in another smart, suspenseful mystery from the Los Angeles Times bestselling author of Short Change.

To help her new chocolate shop flourish, gourmande Helen Taggart has hired Tucker Sinclair and Associates. (Tucker will admit that by "Associates," she means Eugene, an asthmatic young secretary and Dick Tracy wannabe.)

Then one night, Tucker drives by her client's Beverly Hills chocolate shop and finds the door open, truffles strewn across the floor—and the body of cleaning woman Lupe Ortiz lying next to a bloody green feather.

Although Tucker has warned him not to, Eugene Barstok, her fragile secretary-cum-Dick Tracy wannabe, starts investigating. So when he fails to show up for work, she has to follow the kid's unorthodox train of thought and the trail of clues, including the fabled quetzal bird and a Mayan spouted chocolate pot. Tucker knows she must find Eugene before he comes face-to-face with a killer out for sweet revenge.
