Philosophy student Jessica James just wants to defend her thesis and earn her degree. Instead, she finds her professor dead in a bathtub, her thesis marked for rejection, and leaves enough clues at the murder scene to make her a suspect.
Before she can say, ‘What doesn’t kill you sends you to therapy,’ the mob gets involved and it’s up to Jessica and her ragtag posse of friends – Amber the tech-savvy hippie, Jack the wisecracking stoner, and Lolita the seductive poker ‘Tsarina’ – to catch the killer before Jessica becomes the next victim.
Are the murder and Jessica’s thesis connected?
Why was Jessica’s thesis rejection post-dated?
And what do two expensive Russian paintings have to do with it?
Smart, capable women shine in this gripping murder mystery where Girl Power meets Mobster Grit.
