Can Vicki Harbison, Quad City Detective, and Karate expert, find the killer of German student, Reeza Hein, murdered on the University Campus? And maintain classes? She is well prepared, supported by her boss and local police, including Cass Casterly, except that Stu Rigby, her High School love interest, shows up unknown from Secret Service, seeking to find an international counterfeiting ring.

Will this interference jeopardize her momentum in locating a murderer as University Security and personnel charge her with unexpected responsibilities?

Can she face Secret Service impostors, self-important University Security people, the handsome son of one, and Stu Rigby’s attention that rekindles old emotions? Delayed in her quest as she helps Cho from Taiwan and Reeza’s mother in Finland, she finds her own safety in danger. And what about Allen, her mainstay? Off to New Zealand?

Challenged, Vicki puts these people in perspective, criminals included. All things in due time.
