Considering the kind of disasters that usually befall the half-black, half-Jewish mystery writer, probably both. Because the last time Sophie saw sexy P.I. Anatoly Darinsky, he practically danced a jig when she waved goodbye a normal reaction for a man who'd nearly bought the farm trying to protect her from her own foolishness. What are the chances he'd agree to take incriminating pictures of her sister's philandering husband? Or that he'd let her tag along you know for research?
But when her brother-in-law turns up dead and her sister becomes the prime suspect, Sophie's priority is finding the real killer. With or without Anatoly's help. Her brother-in-law's secret life yields plenty of suspects, but the San Francisco police aren't taking any of them seriously. So Sophie does what comes naturally to her: she stirs up trouble (to lure the killer out, of course).
But if her crazy plan works, will Anatoly be there to protect her this time?

Passion, Betrayal and Killer Highlights
"My divorce attorney gave me a list of everything we can take from Dan," she said mildly."I'm beginning to think it would be more humane to just kill him."
— Words To Die By
Anatoly pushed past me into my apartment without bothering to so much as grunt in greeting."Where's your sister?"
"Hello to you, too. Want a beer?" I popped the lid off one of the Pacificos.
He stuck his thumbs through his belt loops."Where's your sister?"
"You see, it's like this — nobody ever told Leah about setting the clocks forward during daylight savings time, so she spends half the year running an hour behind."
He took the beer and threw his jacket over the armrest of the love seat before lowering himself onto the leather cushions."I'm not waiting an hour."
"Oh, please, I was kidding." I took a beer for myself and leaned against the counter that separated the living room from the kitchen."I'm sure she'll be here in forty-five minutes, max."
"She has twenty."
"Okay, I know you're pissed at me, Anatoly, but I'm paying you a lot of money to sit on your tuchas and drink my beer, so the least you can do is give her thirty."
