I received this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

Jazz Callender was a homicide detective, until an incident occurred.  Now her partner is in prison for murder and she's off the force and drinking...a lot.

Then a stranger offers her a job.  She is instructed to partner with another stranger and open a Private Investigation firm.  They will take regular jobs, but every once in awhile they will receive a job in a red envelope - they must accept these jobs and complete them.

Jazz and the job offering stranger, James, slowly develop a relationship.  It'll be very interesting to see where it goes. The partner, Lucia, is professional and loyal and written very well.

The writing is wonderful.  Miss Caine did a great job setting this up as a mystery/thriller.  The story moves slowly, but purposefully.  I can't wait to read more of them!
