"Dyke PI Meg Darcy is hired to search for a serial killer who has dumped bodies of homeless women in St. Louis cemeteries. At the grisly crime scene Meg runs into Sarah Lindstrom, an attractive but aloof city police detective (known as The Ice Queen). Meg's gay comrade-in-arms, Patrick, says Lindstrom is a classic closet case, and definitely not one for Meg to crack, but Meg is determined to find romance. Torn between cooperation and competition, both Meg and Sarah let their personal passions interfere with their pursuit of the case as they strive to be the first to stop a killer." -- Publisher's description.

When it becomes apparent that Lindstrom was the intended victim, Darcy rushes in to try to protect her. But Lindstrom doesn't think she needs protecting, especially by a woman who can't keep her hands to herself when she is around the strikingly handsome six-foot tall Norwegian cop.
