Witty, hip, pretty, and gay, Lauren Laurano isn't your typical private detective. She shares an apartment with Kip, her longtime lover, in New York's Greenwich Village, where they are surrounded by a close-knit group of friends. But Lauren and Kip's relationship has hit a rough patch, and when Kip goes out of town for a month-long conference, Lauren's life gets complicated Witty, hip, pretty, and gay, Lauren Laurano isn't your typical private detective. She shares an apartment with Kip, her longtime lover, in New York's Greenwich Village, where they are surrounded by a close-knit group of friends. But Lauren and Kip's relationship has hit a rough patch, and when Kip goes out of town for a month-long conference, Lauren's life gets complicated by a new case, a new love interest, and a menace from her past. Lauren's friend Elissa is in trouble. Her elderly aunt has been found brutally stabbed to death, and much to Elissa's dismay, the police suspect she's the killer.

Undaunted, Lauren takes the case, using her unique combination of street-savvy detecting and electronic know-how to find the real killer. Tapping into the Internet for clues, Lauren gets more than she bargained for. First on-line, then in person, she meets Alex, a young woman to whom she is powerfully attracted.

And just as Lauren thinks she has her hands full, one of her dearest friends is hospitalized and Lauren begins receiving death threats herself.

    This is my favorite of the 5 in this series. The relationship between Lauren and Kip is so realistic - amazing dialogues and the usual Laurano wit while solving her case with its twists and turns. Great New York scenes and compelling characters and plot.

    I appreciated the relationship stuff going on in this book. It isn't your stereotypical beginning or ending of a relationship (although there were threads of both), but rather the hard part, the part that isn't always easy or pretty, but the day-to-day living of life in a relationship.

    3.5 This is the latest in the Lauren Laurano mystery. The mystery was good, (and included her infatuation with computers) but what was especially interesting was her personal life—she’s having difficulty with her partner, Kip and while Kip’s away, she also finds herself drawn into a relationship with a younger woman. The ending was a real cliffhanger in that regard. 2020 note: I need to reread this series.

    I read the others in this series a while back, but Laurano's voice is so distinctive, it was easy to fall back in. This was the best one so far. The mystery was good, but the other storylines are amazing! Definitely shocked by the ending. I'm moving on to the next one ASAP.

    Oh, damn, oh, damn, oh damn...I was not happy with the cliffhanger at the end of this one!!!! (truth be told I only like a cliffhanger if I already have the next book, which I don't!) There is so much packed into this juicy mystery!

    Another fun, suspenseful book in the Lauren Laurano P.I series. It's definitlely a pity there's only one more written after this.

    I liked this one a lot. Sandra Scoppettone's detective Lauren Laurano is a fun read.

    This book had me on edge from the moment Alex was introduced! I think I was more interested in Mrs Laurano's affair then the case at hand. A very attachable book I didn't want to put down
