. . . days to get Coco’s Nuts, the Triple Threat Investigation Agency’s private eyes’ second case (and third mystery), for 99 cents.
Coco’s Nuts finds the three rookie private eyes entrenched in their second major assignment: proving socialite-turned-trucker Buddy Feuer did not shoot her boss, infamous entrepreneur Jimmy Picolo. Perplexingly, her best friend, Eb Stretta, is found dead a few days later in a nearby alley. And not long after that, Razor, Picolo’s assistant, takes five fatal bullets. The police are adamant Buddy is guilty and all evidence certainly points to her.
In the quest for answers—to prove Buddy has been set up—JJ, Rey and Linda contend with a slew of suspects. Several persons hated Picolo enough to kill him, but locating the one who actually pulled the trigger proves challenging.
The trio’s detecting travels lead them along a few detours—like the world of gambling and the “limb-breaker collectors” that reside within it. Picolo’s daughter, Annia, owes thousands of dollars to them in Vegas and and on Oahu. Might this have served as motivation to kill her father, so that she could collect a sizable inheritance? Or might Picolo’s son, Jimmy Junior, have aspired to take charge of his father’s multiple and highly successful businesses? Could it be that Jimmy’s brother, Ric, wanted to take over his entrepreneurial successes?
And what of nutty Coco Peterson? A driver for Picolo, the odd little fellow (pest, some might call him) has been missing since the murder of his boss.
