There’s certainly no one nuttier than Coco Peterson, someone the Triple Threat Investigation Agency gals never have the [dis]pleasure of meeting.
Coco’s Nuts has our rookie private eyes attempting to prove socialite-turned-trucker Buddy Feuer didn’t shoot her boss, infamous entrepreneur (alleged mobster) Jimmy Picolo.
In a quest for answers, JJ, Rey and Linda contend with a slew of suspects. Several persons certainly hated Picolo enough to kill him, but locating the one who actually pulled the trigger proves a challenge.
Detecting travels lead to the world of gambling and the “limb-breakers” that reside in it. In fact, Picolo’s daughter owes thousands of dollars to collectors in Vegas and Oahu. Might this have served as motivation to kill her father, so that she could collect on the will?
What about Picolo’s son? Did Jimmy Junior yearn to take over the pater’s multiple businesses? What of good ol’ nutty Coco? The little pest, uh, fellow has been AWOL since his boss’ murder.
Lady Luck smiles their way and the Triple Threat trio discover “remnants” of Coco—his tattoo and jewelry—in Picolo’s million-dollar Haleiwa retreat. It appears Coco’s another casualty. Finding the rest of him, however, is as difficult as proving Buddy innocent.
Old friends and acquaintances reappear, but whether they have the trio’s best interests at heart remains to be seen. And who can forget JJ’s dealer-agent “bad boy” boyfriend, Cash Layton Jones? She certainly can’t—badly beaten, he arrives at her door one night.
Ever-enthusiastic Kent Winche is known as “The Source” because he has an ear (and mouth) for gossip. As a Picolo employee, he has access to a sundry of potentially useful connections and eagerly offers to assist.
When the Triple Threat Investigation Agency gals get a case, it’s—in gumshoe vernacular—a humdinger of a lollapalooza. When they’re not discovering another body, they’re dodging crazy characters or racing from a detonating bomb.
