Now, eight years later and out on parole, Nikki Fife hires Kinsey Millhone to find out who really killer her husband. Kinsey has solved the case she was hired to investigate; but in a plot twist, she discovers that her previous notions about the accountant's death were entirely wrong: in fact, it was Scorsoni who killed her when she discovered he was skimming dividend money from estate accounts under his management.

As Kinsey delves deeper into the case, she uncovers a crucial piece of evidence that leads her to the real killer.It's interesting that Kinsey Millhone and Vic Warshawski both appeared for the first time in the same year.

I had tossed the manila folder full of clippings on the passenger seat but I really didn’t need to look at them. Either way, I’ll need the tweezers, and there’ll be more poking and prodding and I’m probably not going to like that much either. Writing when the book was released, Kirkus Reviews said this was a "shakily plotted but otherwise terrific start for a new detective series". Scorsoni used the same method that Gwen used to kill Fife, so it would be assumed the same person committed both murders.
