Finley Tanner is definitely not your average heroine. Her main concern seems to be making sure she keeps up appearances, and all the things she does to accomplish that are good for laughs. While Finley's decisions do come across as rash at times, she's such a likable character that she never seems silly. The best part of this book is the dialogue, which flows beautifully. Pollero's second mystery is great entertainment.

Paralegal Finley is minding her own business (she's sleeping) when her friend Jane shows up at her door covered in blood. Luckily, it's not Jane's, but unfortunately it belongs to the man she was on a date with. Even though Jane claims to remember nothing, she's arrested, and it's up to Finley to prove her innocence before she spends the rest of her life in jail. (Kensington, Mar., 352 pp., $19.95)
