Wiretap by Valerie Biamonte
Amanda Stephens creates business plans to help companies in trouble—but she’s the one in trouble now.
Her firm gathers information through interviews and on-site surveillance then suggests new directions for management. But her newest client—Moyer Metals—has a different problem: one of their employees was just murdered on their property.
Homicide Detective Lou Mason shows up at Amanda’s firm with a warrant for her surveillance footage. He also asks for a date.
Amanda and business partner Julio continue their work for Moyer. Reviewing surveillance audio, Amanda overhears a second worker die a terrible death. She calls Lou and their date becomes an investigation.
Police arrest a Moyer employee whose brother is a high-powered defense attorney—and Amanda’s old flame. He’s determined to win his brother’s case, and Amanda’s heart.
But when the suspect makes bail, Julio goes missing, and the killer hunts Amanda—can she come up with a plan to save herself?
When a former boyfriend comes back Amanda finds herself in an interesting position.
She’d gone from being a spinster to seeing two men in a week’s time. She couldn’t wait to pencil him in on her calendar.
The story takes place in and around Chicago and having been to the Windy City I knew of some of the areas she writes about.
