Sydney, a six-year-old charmer, wants to hire detectives to find her mother. Her father, Henderson, is an inmate in O triple C. (Oahu Community Correctional Center). He's scheduled to testify against the Mafia in Las Vegas, has been framed, and his life is in danger in the prison. Syd's mother has been kidnapped by prison guards who mistakenly believe that Henderson has stolen three hundred thousand dollars. Dick and George rescue the mother, but Dick is shot in the shoulder. They need ten thousand dollars to hire the notorious lawyer who will certainly spring the father. They stage a phony kidnapping to raise the money, move Maggie their receptionist to Seattle to impersonate a branch office. They get the father out of jail, and move the entourage to Seattle. Now they must get Henderson to Las Vegas in time to testify, but because Wickersham, the world's number one detective agency, has been hired to find Henderson, they dare not use a credit card. When Henderson's driver's license number is broadcast in Bakersfield, California, George, and Maggie take off with the cars, hoping to lead the detective agency astray, leaving Dick and Henderson with very little time and very little money to get to Vegas any way they can. In the final dash, they drive a stolen cop car up the steps of the courthouse just minutes late.

About the Author
Don spent more than 30 years in Alaska covering the state as an electronic engineer for Midnight Sun Broadcasting Company and pilot for Bushmaster Air Alaska. His time in Hawaii was spent doing warranty house calls for Sony, exploring the Pacific: Saipan, Yap, Pohnpei, Truck, and Guam. Don settled in Hawaii and spent 15 years traveling the state as an engineer for the ABC television network. When word processors made it possible for people, who can neither spell nor punctuate, to write books, it was time to share some remarkable experiences both in Alaska and the Pacific. To make the stories palatable the obvious format seemed to be murder mysteries. The first step was to ensure authenticity by enrolling in Continuing Adult Education and earning a handsome diploma in the Private Investigator curriculum. Don has retired in Bisbee, Arizona, a former copper mining town now taken over by artists and writers. In Bisbee he writes without distraction because there isn't much else to do.
