Overview

A valued representative of Kauffman Real Estate and Auctioneering vanishes, and $100,000 in cash disappears from the company safe. But even more bizarre, old Friedrich Kauffman is receiving threatening notes--all skewered by antique hatpins that once belonged to his mother. To solve this baffling mystery, Kauffman's anxious daughter Elsa turns to computer-whiz P.I. Patricia Delaney for help. But Delaney's tell-all computer databases and personal snooping quickly uncover more than the respectable Kauffmans wish to reveal, including shady business practices, bitter sibling rivalries, and Friedrich's corpse, stabbed in the chest with a twelve-inch-long hatpin shaped like an angel. It will not be the last.

When Patricia Delaney debuted in 1994, she was a cutting-edge, first-of-her-kind "eGumshoe." Now, the reprinted editions (from Cornerstone Communications), with updates to reflect their times, of the Patricia Delaney eGumshoe mysteries still resonate with timeless humanity and passion, while providing a look back at the 1990s, when technology began to change forever how private investigators worked.

Editorial Reviews

Goodreads - Lynn Demsky
"This was an incredible read. I was expecting just a cozy sort of mystery but, this was really a good down to earth mystery! The characters off-set each other just great, plot was well carried out - with each death I kept changing my mind about who the killer was. Was totally surprised as to who the killer was. A quick read as well as captivating! Anyone enjoying mysteries should enjoy this book! Highly recommend reading this book! "
