When the beloved Pastor of a local church is murdered, members of the congregation ask Marjorie Kane, retired exotic dancer Kandy Kane, for help. She turns immediately to her partner in puzzle-solving, retired army intelligence officer, Alan Lockem. Together the pair of retired citizens have formed a special bond that allows them to interact adeptly with multiple agencies of law enforcement across the world, and dip into sometime grungy elements of the real world.
Art thieves, traces of Edomite copper mining, and a local biker gang all add to the complexities of the puzzle, along with envy, jealousy and marital discord. Using experience, keen observation and persistence, Lockem
and Kane are able to avoid being killed and identify the criminals.
