Lindsey Alexander is dead, a suicide as far as the police are concerned, and there are few, if any, who'd shed a tear. So, when Ivan Novak insists on hiring Claudia Rose to prove Lindsey didn't write the suicide note; she's not sure she wants to do it. Claudia is a forensic handwriting expert, but Lindsey may once have been her friend but that was a long time ago. Feeling sorry for Ivan, she takes on the case. However, when Ivan is murdered and someone seems to be out to get Claudia, she finds herself in deeper than she planned.

From official release/information:

Book Description: Before her body was found floating in her Jacuzzi, publicist-to-the-stars Lindsey Alexander had few friends, but plenty of lovers. To her ex-friend-forensic handwriting expert Claudia Rose-she was a ruthless, back-stabbing manipulator. But even Claudia is shocked by Lindsey's startling final note: "It was fun while it lasted!"

It would be easier on the police-and Claudia-to write it off as suicide. But Claudia's instincts push her to investigate further, and she quickly finds herself entangled in a far darker scenario than she bargained for. Racing to identify a killer, Claudia soon has a price on her head-and unless she can read the handwriting on the wall, she will become the next victim.
