Bodyguarding had never made it to Manchester PI Kate Brannigan’s wish list. But somebody’s got to pay the bills at Brannigan & Co, and if the only earner on offer is playing nursemaid to a paranoid soap star the fast talking, computer-loving white-collar-crime expert has to swallow her pride and slip into something more glam than her Thai boxing kit.
Soon, however, offstage dramas overshadow the fictional storylines, culminating in the unscripted murder of the self-styled ‘Seer to the Stars’ and Kate finds herself with more questions than answers. What’s more her tame hacker has found virtual love, her process server keeps getting arrested, and the ever-reliable Dennis has had the termerity to get himself charged with murder. Nobody told her there’d be days like these.
