Dix Dodd is going undercover again, this time at the behest of Elizabeth Bee. No, make that Mrs. Hugh Drammen. Our ever-enterprising spa worker has snagged herself a wealthy octogenarian husband. But she believes someone is out to kill her darling "Hugh-Bear". She's not about to let that happen, at least not before their first anniversary when her inheritance entitlement kicks in. Unfortunately, Hugh Drammen refuses to believe he's in any danger and won't condone a police investigation.
Enter Dix, posing as Dee Bee, Elizabeth's cougar mother, Dylan, posing as Dee's newest gigolo/boy-toy, Magnus, and Mrs. Presley in the role of Elizabeth's Nanny Jane. Throw in a patriarch with OCD, a daughter and son-in-law with obvious marital problems, their recalcitrant daughter, an odd, anti-social nephew visiting from Alaska, a housekeeper with a bad back that prevents her from housekeeping, a bevy of servants, and a beer-drinking rescue dog, and you have the Drammen household.
It's a bizarre situation, but for a fat fee from Elizabeth, Dix is more than happy to take on the job of Covering Her Assets.
