Giacomo Giammatteo is the author of gritty crime dramas about murder, mystery, and family. And he also writes nonfiction books including the No Mistakes Careers series as well as books about grammar and publishing. When Giacomo isn't writing, he's helping his wife take care of the animals on their sanctuary. At last count they had forty animals--seven dogs, one horse, six cats, and twenty-five pigs.Oh, and one crazy--and very large--wild boar, who takes walks with Giacomo every day and happens to also be his best buddy.
Every night he dreams of a chance to make things right. That chance comes when a high-society woman is brutally murdered, her body parts spread all over town. The investigation quickly hits a dead-end…until a late-night caller with too much information contacts Gino. Between the mystery surrounding what she knows and his penchant for helping women in trouble, more than Gino's curiosity is aroused. He only hopes she's not the killer.
