“You fight back when you are turned into 'bait' for killers”
When mankind reaches the stars, some things will still be the same: People still get murdered, and innocence or guilt still must be proven.
When she finds the body of a retired shopkeeper on the beach, a series of mysterious events draws Lady Jayla into a web of passion, terror, and murder; if she wants to stay alive, she must figure out who the killer is before she becomes the next target.
She also needs to stop the interplanetary jewel thieves who keep breaking into her shop looking for their missing loot. While dealing with this crisis, she faces a slew of other problems. When she bought her shop, she inherited one dysfunctional house-bot who thinks he's a sex-bot and a sales bot who cleans her front window display naked. Then there is her nosy boyfriend Jake and her overprotective family…
To make matters worse, the local and interplanetary detectives investigating the theft and murder think either she stole the jewels, or she makes excellent bait for the real thieves. Take your pick.
