When investigative reporter Kerry McDonough finds double-dealing Senator Ralph van Patten dead in her bed, she can't call the police. Any investigation would paint her as suspect Number 1, putting her in an unwanted spotlight. Plus if it gets out that she slept with an interview subject, her career would be blown out of the water. And she couldn't live with herself if people knew she was with a slimy Republican! Instead, Kerry calls her jack-of-all-trades BFF, Bobbi, to help her dispose of the senator's body and uncover his murderer. But what should be two relatively straightforward tasks hit major speed bumps. The two besties have to dodge drug dealers, vicious assistants, an extravagant wedding, and the perils of suburbia, all while trying to stay ahead of a delectable detective in the race to find out who killed the senator.
Join Kerry and Bobbie on their caper to solve the mystery of the Dead Senator. Perfect for readers of Carl Hiaasen and Janet Evanovich.
