Tax fraud, international intrigue, a priceless Chinese artifact, and murder The Abacus prize is a well-written mystery romance with lots of twists and turns.

In typical Arlene Kay fashion, it features a smart and sassy but insecure professional woman. who serves as the sometimes-too-curious-for-her-own-good amateur sleuth. In this novel, this role is played by junior IRS executive, Grace Quinn. Grace is joined by Therese, her colorful sidekick (think of a slightly ditzy but persistent Dr. Watson)

It's always fun to read an Arlene Kay novel. The Abacus Prize, with Grace Quinn, an IRS executive turned amateur sleuth, is a heck of a good time to read. Grace is smart and cool and she's hot for Patrick Fong, a rich and sexy guy (Kay's favorite type) who is not above suspicion in a murder. There's romance, suspense, and murder, of course.
