After a divorce from her husband and business partner, Alex, Amanda Thorne is determined to make it on her own in real estate--despite scorpions, 100-degree heat, and an encounter with a cactus en route to her first big listing. But when she finally arrives at the Mid-century modern manse, a lifeless body in the living room really spoils the ambiance.

With the reluctant cooperation of dishy Detective Ken Becker, Amanda sets out to unravel the truth. But after a fellow real estate agent is murdered, some pissed-off Black Widow spiders infest her car, and a body is found floating in her pool, it's clear someone wants Amanda's inquiring mind off the market--permanently.

"James's sparkling debut introduces an appealing new sleuth. . .Witty, accident-prone Amanda should attract fans of Laura Levine."--Publishers Weekly

David James has not written any screenplays, has never received a Pulitzer, and is not a regular contributor to National Public Radio. He is currently working on his next Amanda Thorne mystery.

Baker & Taylor
Palm Springs real estate agent Amanda Thorne is excited about her first big listing until she finds the dead body of environmentalist Doc Winters in the living room and, launching her own investigation, soon becomes the killer's next target.

Should be restricted for coarse language

What induced me to pick up this book? I could not get past the third page due to the crass & foul mouthed language as well as the utterly fake way the heroine expressed herself, like a testosterone filled jock. This is one of those situations that the male author could not get into the female psyche. The ineptitude of the author really makes the story fall short. Don't waste your time!
