For those not familiar with the antics, uh, cases of the Triple Threat Investigation Agency trio, The Connecticut Corpse Caper won’t provide any. What Caper will do is enlighten you re the gals’ pre-detective adventures.
It all begins when seven inheritance recipients gather for a week-long stay at the vast, creepy Connecticut mansion of Mathilda Moone. As is befitting Aunt Mat’s “unique” (some claim dotty) character, her will stipulates that if one recipient leaves early, his or her share will be divided among those remaining. As it happens, one does depart—not by choice.
Every character has a secret, as Jill Jocasta (JJ) and her two associates, Reynalda (Rey) and Linda, discover when they slip on amateur P.I. shoes. Others soon join in the sleuthing, and the bumbling and stumbling—murder and mayhem—begin.
Enter dead bodies and legal sorts. Enter Fred, the resident ghost, singing a favorite song. Enter potential inheritance recipients through hidden passageways and corridors. . . . Enter not-so-dead Aunt Mat.
Fingers point and tongues wag. It appears any one of the visitors could be a diabolical murderer. Even those six fatal Moone accidents that occurred during the last decade suddenly seem as if they may not have happened by chance.
Through trial and error, and just good old plain luck, the three women discover who is responsible for the killings. Questions are asked and answered until a partner arrives on the scene and silences the killer’s voice.
Excitement reigns. Paramedics and officers dash into the chaos. Soon, all is explained and there are no loose ends. . . . Well, maybe not quite. Those Moone accidents? They truly weren’t by chance.
