Davis learns the truth and it does not set her free--in fact, it lands her in the pokey.


Buried under a mistaken identity, unable to seek help from her family, her hot streak runs cold until her landlord Bradley Cole steps in. Make that her landlord, lawyer, and love interest. With his help, Davis must win this high stakes game before her luck runs out. -- amazon.com

This action packed mystery is full of twists and turns with funny events sprinkled throughout.

The casino is loosing a lot of money and the wife of Richard Sanders, President and CEO of the casino is the number one suspect. 

 Davis' first assignment  is to impersonate Bianca Sanders, Richard Sanders wife. Natalie Middleton provides all the necessities.

Complications explode when she discoverers her two time ex-husband, Eddie Crawford, is spending a lot of time with Bianca and he is a big  winner.  Davis must stay away from him or she is libel to ruin the undercover operation.  

Due to "problems" Davis' assignment changes. As she continues to impersonate various people, she becomes suspicious that there is more to this job than she has been told. This becomes fact when Davis is accused of the attempted murder of Richard Sanders. The events that follow lead her from a jail cell  to tracking a ruthless killer. 

Who can she trust? A mysterious cab driver who sleeps in his cab? The two security men that keep popping up at odd times? Or her absent landlord handsome Bradley Cole? Who set her up and why was she really hired?

This is a great read and difficult to put down. So curl up in a comfy spot and prepare for an enjoyable adventure with Davis Way.
