Boston's answer to Kinsey Milhone, Carlotta Carlyle, returns in a slippery adventure that sees her going undercover on the world's largest construction project. However, she gets a second job from an elegantly dressed woman who asks her to find her roommate named Veronica James (Veejay). Her fraud investigation on the Dig stalls, but then a construction worker with ties to the company's owners turns up dead, and a break-in at Veronica's home up the stakes considerably.

This is the second Carlotta Carlyle mystery I've read, and I'm looking forward to reading more. Barnes makes the city come alive, much like Dennis Lehane does, and her characterizations and sharp and witty. A suspenseful, can't-put-it-down read.
