But anything about the case doesn't add up, and Harry follows a string of odd clues glitter in the producer's cuffs, an over-the-counter medicine in the Rolls' glove box in a different way completely.
     Simply when Harry thinks he's on fast ground, the bottom falls out.  Blind sided again and again, at odds with his superiors, and overwhelmed by a romance that has cropped up in the center of the case, Harry is as off balance as he's ever been.
