The Blue Scorpion

by Julia Lieber
£8.99   paperback  Alyson Publications (2005)

The Blue Scorpion by Julia Lieber Fresh off investigating one of the most high-profile criminal cases in the country, Loy Lombard is in trouble even before she's hired to find a missing Russian bride. The shrewd, brooding, high-octane sleuth has a cheating lover of her own to deal with and a drinking problem that is quickly catching uop with her. But when Natalie Wolf goes missing, and the police take a hard look at Wolf's morbid husband, Lombard's life goes on a roller-coaster ride of epic proportions.
 
Who was Natalie Wolf? A mail-order bride, trying to escape an abusive husband? Or an international pro, using her American marriage as a cover for crime? Domineering farm matron Augusta Wolf hires Lombard to track down her missing daughter-in-law and a lot of money that disappeared with her. But when Natalie turns up dead on the Wolf's property, all evidence points to her husband, Abel.
 
That is, until Lombard meets the shadowy Mari Attila, an international ice queen with underworld connections and an eye for women, including Lombard herself. As Lombard hunts down the truth about Natalie Wolf, she will confront her own past, battle her own demons, and, ultimately, find a woman worth fighting for.
