The search for a perfect woman for an advertising campaign involves a number of ladies who are turned down for the lucrative job. Suddenly, one after the other, the women are being killed. Why? Shady bookkeeping shows up in the remains of a failing business.

The usual love interests emerge as the plot thickens. Unfortunately, to me, the plot never thickens enough. The story is told in third person by a number of the characters. The separate interludes are never long enough to truly get a handle on the people involved at that moment. Their back stories are interesting but are not expounded on enough to understand each of their actions.

This is a first book for the author. It shows, and could use revisions. A few typos are excusable, but the poor English in spots need editing. The plot is a good one, but at times I felt the author, who has potential, had written herself into a corner and used whatever she could come up with to escape.
