She’s looking forward to relaxing and reading the latest mystery book she picked up at the airport in Boston. However, when Mike’s favorite college professor is murdered and Mike’s least favorite teaching assistant is arrested, Carly’s nose for murder is on high alert. When one of her former college friends, who now works for The Family, shows up then gets blown up, leaving a bag of money and some incriminating evidence behind, Carly tosses her book on the bed and tries to keep herself and Mike safe from the goons and bimbos from Chicago intent on fitting them with cement shoes. Can Carly find out who killed both the professor and the mob accountant, or will she be swimming with the fishes?
