Synopsis

Unusually, Cuddy is approached by two clients jointly. One is the grieving widow of a murdered furniture-store owner who had previously survived World War II's Holocaust. The other is a smarmy brother of the store's sex-kitten secretary, who disappeared a week after the murder. The thorny--and eventually ethical--question for the private investigator is whether the two incidents are related in a way that will favor one client over the other, or destroy them both.
