Devil In Profile 

Kimberly G. Giarratano

Intent on making some extra cash, unlicensed P.I. Billie Levine picks up hours working as a process server for another investigation firm. Despite her ever-present anxiety over her family, Billie’s doing okay. That is, until she stumbles upon the corpse of an elderly man, an art collector with ties to Nazi Germany. 

Things get worse when the cops zero in on her boyfriend Aaron’s connections to an international art ring, and pin him as the killer. Turns out Aaron’s stint in Israel left him with more than just a thick scar on his neck. The woman he screwed over wants revenge, and is determined to leverage the case to get it. 

With the detectives focused on Aaron, Billie sets her sights
on stopping a killer who is tying up loose ends – Billie being one
of them.
