Three murders. Three locked rooms. The race is on to find the killer before more red is spilled.
On edge and desperately tired, Investigator Janey McCallister wants nothing more than to take bereavement leave to grieve a terrible personal loss. But when the high-end hotel-casino space station Bijoux de L’Étoile is struck by three locked-room murders, she must take the lead.
When the murders turn out to be related to a top-secret case Sol Unified Planets inspector Orlando Valdez is investigating, Janey questions her entire purpose for working at the hotel.
Janey finds herself knee deep in blood and heartache, running red and ragged toward a man and a case that might destroy her career.
Can she overcome her need to control every situation and work with others to solve the case, or is Orlando using her for his own ends like he has before?
