Overview

Budding mystery writer Mallory was just trying to impress a politically correct girlfriend by delivering hot meals to little old ladies. The last thing he expected was to find his elderly charges such fascinating company, and when one sweet old gal meets an unexpectedly grisly fate, Mal sets out to find and stop the burglars who this time stole a life. The last thing the local sheriff needs, however, is a meddling civilian — even if the professions the young writer pursued before coming back home to sleepy Port City, Iowa, included reporter, soldier, and cop.

But Mal’s weakness is the fairer sex, and when he’s distracted by a high-school flame who got away, he has to wonder if he’s been blonde-sided. Back on track seeking the killers, Mal finds out the hard way that a murder mystery in real life could close the book on him…forever.
