Historic Route 66: With its signs for "New Dead Things," the Biker Bunny Bin, and the Kontiki Pizza and Chinese Restaurant that serves only waffles - it's kitchy, crazy, and fun. How appropriate that it would hold a place of importance to unconventional Tracy Eaton and her dad, aging Hollywood hunk, Alec Grainger.
Their Route 66 adventures always included a stay in Tecos, New Mexico, but their regular stop at Lucy Crier's Lunch Pail Café is now a thing of the past, since Lucy plugged her ex-beau and went to the big house for murder. That's why it's perplexing when Lucy, safely ensconced in her cell, is simultaneously seen dodging traffic along Route 66. Naturally, Alec uses that mystery to lure Tracy and her sweetie Drew back to America's Main Street.
But the road takes a darker turn when Woody Crier, Lucy's smarmy son, turns up dead, and an even stranger bend when the FBI goes gunning for Tracy, calling her one of America's Most Wanted.
She has no choice but to go on the lam, but this time, the Mother Road provides no escape. As the danger escalates, Tracy knows if she can't cut through the web of secrets and lies shrouding her favorite haunts and the pasts of those dearest to her, everything she cherishes could vanish in a Route 66 minute.

Tracy is planning to introduce her husband Drew to the pleasures that are Route 66. But when a family friend is murdered in a small New Mexico town, they find themselves having to solve a mystery 30 years old to find out why he died now. These books are always wacky capers, and this is no exception. The mystery is well plotted, but Tracy's antics are a blast the entire way through. A perfect light mystery for any road trip. And keep an eye out for a character named Mark Baker.
A delightful romp along the Mother Road as the quirky Tracy Eaton plunges headlong into legal difficulties all in the name of solving blackmail and murder mysteries. The author provides the reader with the nicely described eccentricities of Route 66 as the story unfolds. It’s suspenseful right up to the end.
