Publisher Comments:

Gladdy Gold may have gone from dyed-in-the-wool New Yorker to South Florida retiree, but shes loving every minute of it. Between poolside gossip, a hot-to-trot boyfriend, and a booming detective business, life couldnt be sunnier—until a trip back north with her sister Evvie leads to murder and mayhem starring the usual suspects.

Unbeknownst to Gladdy, her fellow detectives are hot on her trail. Sophie, Bella, and Ida no sooner land their tootsies in the Big Apple than trouble promptly finds them. But while the girls go deep undercover, posing as bag ladies to catch a criminal, theres another surprise awaiting Gladdy. Her boyfriend, Jack, is in town too—and hes reopening a forty-seven-year-old cold case: the murder of Gladdys husband. Can Gladdy and Jack join forces to solve a decades-old crime—and maybe heal some wounded hearts in the process?

Synopsis:

Gladdy Gold, Floridas self-proclaimed oldest living private eye, and her friends head north to the Big Apple to solve the murder of her first husband, a cold case that occured 47 years ago. Original.
