Itís been a
cold, lonely winter for Cora Felton. Long distance has cooled the Puzzle
Ladyís on-again-off-again affair with Sergeant Crowley, and the only
case Chief Harper has for her to investigate is a routine liquor store
robbery. So when attorney friend Becky Baldwin asks her to check out
whether Brittney Wells' philandering husband is planning to kill her to
collect on a million dollar, double indemnity insurance policy, Cora
jumps at the chance.
Cora has no problem tracking
hubby to his love nest, but when Brittany refuses to believe he's
cheating on her, Cora has to blackmail him to prove the affair. Before
she can, a car bomb rocks the quiet streets of Bakerhaven, and the
stakes escalate to murder.
To save Becky's clueless client
from the clutches of the law, Cora will manipulate a TV reporter, cast
suspicion on an innocent man, crack crossword and Sudoku clues, solve
the liquor store robbery, and enlist the aid of both Sergeant Crowley and his girlfriend in Parnell Hall's Puzzled Indemnity, this outrageous new entry in the Puzzle Lady Mystery series featuring Sudoku by Will Shortz.
