Though two murders a week apart, seemingly have nothing to do with a break in at her office, the events thrust Kaci Barnett into the world of mobsters, deceit and jealousy. Once she finds the body of her future client, PI Kaci Barnett is threatened and beaten up by some goons looking for a white box. It seemed someone named Ro searched the late Tina's house for this box and a set of plates. Add to this a threat to Kaci's cousin's reputation and all she'd built these last four years just because of a collegiate indiscretion. People send her a five foot snake, cat entrails and finally a demand for money. This all bubbles up to a smoky finale when Kaci solves both mysteries.
