In Las Vegas, Estella “Steele” Mezzanotte and Cameron Stone meet while she is on a stake out for a client. They end up making love in a downtown hotel. That morning he is gone and Steele is angry and disappointed.

Mrs. Gray Cavanaugh hires Steele to investigate whether her husband is cheating on her. Steel know her as Maria DiMarco, daughter of family friend Frank “Demon” DiMarco. Before she can get started Stone walks into her office as if two months two weeks and four days had not elapsed from when he left her in the hotel. Although angry with him, she is attracted to the Scotsman who says Frank hired him to determine who is embezzling from the firm; his son-in-law Gray is the prime suspect. As they join forces, they fall in love, while finding proof that gray is cheating on Maria and embezzling funds with his girlfriend.

This is an interesting amusing romantic suspense starring a likable pairing as he ahs a lot to explain, but because of the nature of his work he cannot. The story line is fast paced especially when the lead couple banter and a late twist seems plausible but will stun readers. Although the support cast is stereotypical whether they are family, worker or friend, readers will enjoy ANOTHER SIDE OF MIDNIGHT.
