Nobody ever said Kat Valentina was an arbiter of good taste, or that her notorious "health" spa, the Royal Palms, was anything more than a tacky, hedonistic paradise, where sex, drugs, and wild times were all part of the regimen. But the mediocre actress-turned-club owner certainly had her fans - something of a cult following ever since her starring role in a piece of celluloid camp called "Disco Diva." Then the party girl met her demise: an accidental drowning, the Medical Examiner ruled, due to a lethal mix of too many Margaritas and one steamy herbal mud bath. But that doesn't satisfy Savannah Reid - especially after an anonymous note with the much-needed promise of $10,000 for tracking down the killer - is slipped under her office door. Suddenly, the feisty detective is introduced to a bizarre cast of characters, all of whom were fed up with Kat - and all of whom have means, opportunity and motive for the crime: Kat's ex-husband and manager, who just happened to have recently taken out a life insurance policy on his former spouse; the spa masseuse, whose deceptive credentials - and secret past - concealed a deadly obsession; Kat's handsome co-star from her disco days, a victim of Kat's unique brand of blackmail. Unmasking the murderer among them won't be easy, but Savannah knows one thing for sure: the most delectable endings are always worth waiting for...
