In Chicago, hedonistic trust fund abuser Jack Durham is murdered. Durham was known for drinking and high class escorts. However his affluent billionaire father, throwing his influence at the politicians and media, demands his son’s killer brought to justice.

CPD assigns Detective Kristen Conner to work the highly visible homicide case as she is a beautiful woman who could enter Durham’s inner circle and besides received accolades for solving a serial killer case (see Cuts Like a Knife). She finds it ironic as her love life is with FBI hunk Austin Teeters. Thus she goes undercover as an escort to the 1% only to find they spend money to spin the truth, but must find time to coach her niece’s soccer team the Snowflakes.

The latest Conner police procedural is a terrific undercover investigative thriller starring an engaging cop who balances at times poorly her profession with personal demands including from her protective smothering family. The whodunit is top rate filled with twists as the ultra-rich have special means to alter the truth. Every Breath You Take is a fabulous urban mystery.
