A wise-cracking, grammar-obsessed, pansexual amateur sleuth is thrust into the world of the uber-rich when her enigmatic, now-famous childhood friend breezes back into her life begging for help with a dangerous stalker
Our nameless postmodern amateur sleuth is still recovering from her first dangerous foray into detective work when her old friend Priscilla Jane Gill breezes back into her life and begs for help. Pris, now a famous travel writer, fears she’s being stalked again after a nearly fatal attack by a deranged fan a year earlier. In Pris’s dizzying world of wealth and privilege, nameless meets dreamy but sinister tech billionaire Nathan and his equally unnerving sidekick Chiles. Pris’s stalker is murdered outside her book launch, and the shadow of obsession continues to stalk Pris. With no one she can totally trust, nameless knows she’s not going to like the answer — but she delves into her old friend’s past, seeking the mastermind behind Pris’s troubles before it’s too late. Bunnywit does his level best to warn them, but no one else speaks Cat, so background peril transforms into foreground betrayal and murder.
In the second installation of the Epitome Apartments Mystery Series, our heroine walks a dangerous path in a world where money is no object and the stakes are higher, and more personal, than ever.

Excellent, fast-paced psychological thriller and one that had me gripped from the beginning! The book is fast paced, exciting, and full of suspense. Priscilla and a nameless nameless amateur sleuth go on a wild adventure! These characters were seriously bad@ss and I couldn't have loved them more! Overall I loved this book! It was fun, different, unique, thrilling and full of mysteries. Thank you NetGalley, ECW Press and Author for the amazing chance to read and review this book!
This second installment in the Epitome Apartments Mystery series was nearly as fun as the first! It kept me on the edge of my seat and was gripping from beginning to end. I wasn't sure if the chapter naming conventions and similar gimmicky aspects of the narration such as the snark and the deep love of grammar were going to carry over well into a second book but I was pleasantly surprised. I really like the narrator of this series. She is an unnamed amateur sleuth who is ethically non-monogamous and pansexual. I love that representation and then add to it her dry sense of humor and instance on good grammar; I'm so glad I fund this series! I'm already eagerly awaiting a third installment!
