For Franki Amato, life in New Orleans is anything but “The Big Easy.” She's the lead investigator in the murder of a gorgeous cosmetics CEO who was found lying dead in the master bedroom of a historic plantation home. Now the pressure is on Franki to figure out what a bottle of pink lip gloss and the legend of a pink diamond have to do with the bizarre killing...and a haunted plantation home.
