More About This Book

Overview

A fun-filled Silver Sisters escapade in "Sin City"...

After Godiva's son Torch buys a condo in Las Vegas, his grandmother Flossie and great uncle Sterling decide to pay him a visit. When the old vaudeville magicians drag him to the Pageant of Peacocks starring sexy Mara the Magnificent it's love at first sight. The romance blossoms but when Torch returns from a meeting in L.A., Mara seems cold and distant.
Torch turns to his mother, the advice columnist, for a helping hand. Godiva agrees to check things out during her upcoming trip to Vegas, when she joins her twin sister Goldie at a big antique expo. Flossie and Sterling tag along for a second trip to sin city.
The family gets a shock while attending Mara's show, where a stagehand dies during the performance. Police call it accidental, but Mara is convinced its murder. Torch told her about his family's uncanny ability to solve mysteries, so she begs them to investigate the death of her friend.
They start to poke around in their clever but kooky fashion and uncover an even bigger mystery. This time Flossie and Sterling take the lead and when they uncover a diabolical plot they come close to doing a disappearing act of their own!

    The Silver Sisters are at it again!

    Vanishing Act in Vegas (A Silver Sisters Crime Caper) – Review by Martha A. Cheves, Author of A Book and A Dish, Think With Your Taste Buds and Stir, Laugh, Repeat.

    Poor Torch. He finally lands a great contract as a special effects director in Las Vegas, bought a condo with a view of the strip and his grandmother and great uncle are planning on paying him a visit to help him ‘settle in.’ He loves them both but he also knows them very well. Both are retired magicians and trouble seems to be what they conjure up the most.

    “Well, Mom, the last of my stuff is loaded. I just wanted to say goodbye before I take off.” She kissed him on the cheek, sensing her son couldn’t wait to hotfoot-it out the door and begin his life as a swinging bachelor. Sterling turned the sound back on, but Flossie grabbed the remote and turned it off again. She looked at her grandson and smiled sweetly. “So, tottelah, your Uncle Sterling and I will be there in two, maybe three days. You know your uncle is afraid to fly so we’ll just tune up the Caddy tomorrow and be on our way.” “Whaa-“ Torch stared at her blankly. “Torch, honey, you’ll need help getting things in order, and no one does that better than your Uncle Sterling and me. I’ll set up your closets and kitchen and cook some good Jewish meals for your freezer and Uncle Sterling can putter around and help you hang pictures and do little odd jobs.” Torch looked to his mother in desperation. Flossie jumped up and tweaked him on the cheek. “Look, Sterling, he’s so happy we’re coming, he’s speechless. Good thing you bought a three bedroom. I guess we’ll stay for three or four days. Who knows, maybe longer if we get lucky. Magic acts are big in Vegas again.”

    Torch’s mother Godiva Silver DuBois and his mother’s twin sister Goldie Silver decide to take a trip to Vegas too. Godiva is a famous advice to the lovelorn columnist who’s column is called Ask G.O.D.’ She is also the millionaire widow of Max DuBois which gives her the time and money to do whatever she wants at any given time. Goldie is an over-the-hill hippi antique dealer from Juneau, Alaska and Godiva can easily afford to treat Goldie to the trip to Vegas.

    Godiva loves to write her column but her favorite hobby is dabbling into the mysteries of crime with her twin sister. So, when Goldie flew to Vegas from her home in Alaska the two twins put their heads together to solve the murder of Mara the Magnificent. What the twins also discover is that Mara isn’t just a magician, she is also Torch’s girlfriend and she has a secret that blows them all away!

    I fell in love with the Silver Sisters after reading A Corpse in the Soup. Their antics as well as those of their mother Flossie and their Uncle Sterling will keep you laughing along as you try to solve the murder that they always seem to step into. Vanishing Act in Vegas was one that really lost me as an amateur reader detective. Every time I thought I knew who had done what to who and why, I found myself scratching my head to come up with another solution because my original was all wrong. I couldn’t help but wish I knew these people. They were so much fun to be around even when they found themselves in trouble.
