A cop's wife has been murdered. As LAPD detectives Mike Lomax and Terry Biggs investigate, a second cop's wife is killed. Both women were part of an ingenious real estate scheme run by bestselling murder mystery author Nora Bannister: she buys a house in L.A. dirt cheap, and while her partners turn it into a showplace, Nora murders someone there--in her next book. When the house goes on the market, there's a bidding frenzy. It seems a lot of people want to live in a house where a fictional character has died a violent death.
Is someone stalking the house flippers, or is the murderer after cops' wives? Either way, Lomax and Biggs have to track down the killer before he (or she) murders the next logical target--Marilyn Biggs, Terry's wife.
MARSHALL KARP, former ad executive, playwright, TV and screenwriter, is the author of the Lomax and Biggs mystery series. He is currently co-authoring a thriller with James Patterson.
