Brett Cavanugh is the owner of the Painted Lady, a tattoo shop on the Strip in Las Vegas. One of Brett's best customers, Daisy Carmichael, a lead singer in a popular pop group, is found dead in a hotel room. She is surrounded by tattoo supplies including needles and ink pots. Brett becomes a prime suspect when the police are informed that a woman matching Brett's description is witnessed leaving the scene of the crime. Pictures appear on the Internet showing Brett. She is being stalked by her impersonator. To clear her name Brett must find who is behind these events and find the real killer.

This is an action packed, fast moving mystery. The plot is well thought out. The characters have depth and interesting personalities. The scenes of Las Vegas are set in your mind by the author. There is a touch of romance with the mystery. And, the reader can learn a few things about tattoos!
