This is a short story, not a full novel.
Boston homicide detective D.D. Warren is seven months pregnant, bored being stuck on desk duty, and not succeeding in making up her mind on whether to move in with her boyfriend & father of her child, Alex. So it's a welcome distraction when movie producer Donnie Bilger walks in to the station, looking for a police detective to act as a technical consultant on his new movie. He had one, a retired cop, but that guy has apparently taken off on vacation with his very ample paycheck.
It's a lot of money for at most a few days' work, and D.D. can feel useful rather than feeling like a lump. What could go wrong? What could possibly go wrong?
This is a great introduction to the series if you're not familiar with it, and a nice little extra for regular readers of the series.
