DECEPTION PASS: A Thomas Black Mystery - Earl Emerson

This one is a little rough around the edges, but I like the main characters, Thomas Black and his wife Kathy. I will look for more of the series, especially the first one just because of these two. I especially loved the interplay of their relationship.
Thomas Black, PI, is hired to look into whoever is blackmailing uber-rich Lainie Smith. This would all be in a day's work for Black, but Lainie wants him to find out who is blackmailing her, but not enlighten him over what the blackmail is about.
There was another thing I liked, there wasn't much black and white. There were shades of grey all over the book. Everyone was shades of grey-ish good and bad.
Three rough around the edges beans....
