Abused as a child, Jodie Danforth has always yearned for beauty and incredible wealth. Thanks to plastic surgery, she has beauty. Now she is marrying older gentlemen and murdering them for their wealth. Because of a tragic one-night stand in New York City, Jodie is tracked by a vicious assassin named Tooth. She flees to Brighton, England, where DS Roy Grace begins to track her after a petty burglar, Shelby Stonor, breaks into her home and is fatally bitten by her pet saw-scaled viper. Can Roy locate Jodie before she claims another wealthy victim or before she falls victim to a deadly assassin?

From official release/information:

Product Description: An ugly duckling as a child, Jodie Bentley had two dreams in life--to be beautiful and rich. She's achieved the first, with a little help from a plastic surgeon, and now she's working hard on the second. Her philosophy on money is simple: you can either earn it or marry it. Marrying is easy, it's getting rid of the husband afterwards that's harder, that takes real skill. But hey, practice makes perfect.

Detective Superintendent Roy Grace is feeling the pressure from his superiors, his previous case is still giving him sleepless nights, there have been major developments with his missing wife Sandy, and an old adversary is back. But worse than all of this, he now believes a Black Widow is operating in his city. One with a venomous mind ... and venomous skills. Soon Grace comes to the frightening realization that he may have underestimated just how dangerous this lady is.
