Book summary

Until someone put a poisoned needle in his  bicycle seat, Phil Drem was the meanest, most  nit-picking IRS agent in Berkeley,  California.

But when Detective Jill Smith began searching  Berkeley's backwaters for the tax man's killer, she  found a different picture of Drem: a caring Drem,  whose once-beautiful wife was "allergic to the  world" and whose friends and enemies, old  hippies and would-be entrepreneurs, enjoyed a  ghoulish pastime called The Death Game. Did the Death  Game KO Drem? Was someone's schedule a motive for  murder? And what about a CPA who drove a red Lotus  ruthlessly and guaranteed his clients they'd never  be audited?

Only one thing is for  sure--somewhere in Berkeley's colorful backwaters,  a killer is still on the loose. And for a  detective who loves her city, doubts her lover, and has a  knack for solving the toughest of crimes, finding  the truth is about as inevitable  as...Death And  Taxes. [via]
