Private eye Kate Brannigan confronts betrayal and cold-blooded greed as she investigates the alien world of medical experimentation and the underbelly of the rock music business. Kate Brannigan's not just having a bad day, she's having a bad week. Her boyfriend's death notice is in the paper, her plan to catch a team of fraudsters is in disarray and a neo-punk band want her to find out who's trashing their flyposters. And her business partner wants her to buy him out. Fine, but private eyes with principles never have that kind of cash. Kate can't even cry on her best friend's shoulder, for Alexis has worries of her own. Her girlfriend's pregnant, and when the doctor responsible for the fertility treatment is murdered, Alexis needs Kate like she's never done before. So what's a girl to do? Delving into the alien world of medical experimentation and the underbelly of the rock-music business, Kate confronts betrayal and cold-blooded greed as she fights to save not only her livelihood, but her life as well!

Very interesting background to this mystery - and not only the music. Kate Brannigan is a competent, and likeable character too.

One of the interesting things in this book is the fact that there are two cases being dealt with at the same time, the murder of a doctor and the problems created by people pasting posters on top of other people's posters so that the one band loses the advertising. Thew setting is Manchester so there is a little slang, but only enough to confirm the locale. The characters make sense, even the marijuana smoking Richard and I hope the Scabby Heided Bairns turn up in later books along with their leader, Dan Druff . This is a series and characters from earlier stories are mentioned, but it really just makes the book more real since we all meet people over and over again in our work. The fertility treatment the book features seems quite startling until you walk through the process mentally. I haven't come to a final decision as to how I feel ethically about it, though.
