Charlie returns home to Albuquerque after her Hawaiian vacation. Her brother, Ron, meets her at the airport. And guess what? Ron's in love. Is there anything worse than a middle-aged man smitten silly?

Yes--Charlie finds out, when it turns out that Ron's new sweetie is almost twenty years younger! Cute Vicky is full of secrets and Ron is about to get hurt.

In addition to Ron's problems, Charlie runs into an old friend whose business partner has apparently just committed suicide. If that's true, Sharon Ortega will probably lose her business. If it wasn't suicide, Sharon might end up in jail for murdering her partner.

It's a no-win situation until Charlie sorts out the puzzle.

Here's what others have said about the Charlie Parker mysteries:
"A well written, by-the-book whodunit that will enthrall purists. Charlie is a fabulous amateur sleuth." -- Midwest Book Review

"Down to earth and very readable." -- Library Journal

"Charlie is slick, appealing, and nobody's fool..." --Booklist
