"An auspicious debut!" -- I Love a Mystery newsletter

"This is a dandy. Don't miss it." -- Book Talk

The first book in this bestselling mystery series introduces Albuquerque CPA Charlotte "Charlie" Parker. Charlie handles the business side of RJP Investigations while her brother, Ron, does the detecting. When Ron is out of town, however, Stacy North, who eloped with Charlie's fiance, Brad, 10 years earlier, comes calling, hoping to hire someone to find her missing Rolex watch. Charlie reluctantly takes the case and soon locates the watch. Stacy, it turns out, had been having an affair. Soon the lover is dead, and Stacy is an obvious suspect. Charlie sticks with the case and finds herself involved with still more murder.

Includes new foreword from the author upon the 20th anniversary of first publication of this ongoing series' first title.

Editorial Reviews

Booklist - Stuart Miller, Booklist
This is a well-plotted debut mystery with a nice surprise ending and some excellent characterizations. Charlie, in particular, is slick, appealing, and nobody's fool--just what readers want in an amateur sleuth. Look forward to the next installment in what shapes up to be a promising series.
Albuquerque Journal - Steve Brewer Albuquerque Journal
An impressive debut mystery.
