Tara Holloway has got your number. A special agent on the IRS's payroll, she's dead-set on making sure that money crimes don't pay...

Tax cheats, beware: The Treasury Department's Criminal Investigations Division has a new special agent on its payroll. A recovering tomboy with a head for numbers, Tara's fast becoming the Annie Oakley of the IRS--kicking ass, taking social security numbers, and keeping the world safe for honest taxpayers. Or else.

Tara's latest mission finds her in hot pursuit of ice-cream vendor Joseph "Joe Cool" Cullen. Along with frozen treats he's selling narcotics--and failing to report his ill-gotten gains on his tax returns. Over Tara's dead body . Then there's Michael Gryder, who appears to be operating a Ponzi scheme...with banker Stan Shelton...whose lake house is being landscaped by Brett Ellington...who happens to be dating Tara. If following that money trail isn't tough enough, now Tara must face a new conundrum: Should she invest her trust in Brett--or put him behind bars? New love always comes at a cost but justice? Priceless.

Too many manicures. Too many clothes. WAY too much sex. Not my thing, and I probably won't read more, but I admit there were some pretty hilarious lines.

This is a fun book to read. It is up there with Janet Evanovich books, but this one is about an IRS tax agent that is not afraid to use her gun. If you need a good laugh in a suspense novel on a dark rainy night in January then this is for you!
