For Barbara, life is an adventure. Unemployed, surrounded by friends who are always willing to lead her astray (or at least into a murder scene), and enjoying the mellowing, if somewhat chancy weather of April in Montreal, she takes advantage of a prize won at a charity auction: a ride-along with the Montreal police department. That she won the trip for only fifty dollars should have been warning enough. It wasn't. The second call of the evening brings the radio car to a beautiful home in Westmount, an address to pay a fortune for. It is only after a hysterical Beth Whitestone starts speaking to her that Barbara realizes that she's been to this home before - in fact, every year for the past five. It is where her ex-boss lived. And where he now lies on the floor of the master bedroom, a knife sticking from his back. From Old Montreal jazz clubs to the homes of a powerful WASP enclave, Barbara - aided and abetted by friends who should know better - begins a very much unauthorized investigation into the murder of a man she considered a friend, but who had far too many enemies...
