A quick countdown to the last day . . .
Coco’s Nuts, the third mystery in the Triple Threat Investigation Agency series, is available for 99 cents today, the last day of the promo.
It’s Linda today (or Lindy-Loo, as Rey likes to call me too often).
As still newbie P.I.s, we become entrenched in our second paying assignment: proving socialite-turned-trucker Buddy Feuer did not shoot her boss, infamous entrepreneur Jimmy Picolo. If that’s not bad enough, a few days later her best friend, Eb, is found dead in a nearby alley. Oh, it gets worse: not long after that, Razor, Picolo’s assistant, receives five fatal bullets in his bulky frame. Unfortunately, all the evidence points at our pretty client.
In the search for answers, JJ, Rey and I deal with a sundry of suspects. Many persons hated Picolo enough to kill him—no news there—but determining who pulled the trigger proves quite challenging. And, apparently, the killer hates Buddy as well, because she’s been set up to take the fall.
Our detecting leads us down a few detours, like the world of high-stakes gambling and the not-so-friendly limb-breakers that reside within it. Picolo’s daughter, Annia, owes thousands of dollars to debt collectors in Vegas and on Oahu. Was this motivation to kill her father, so that she could collect from the will? Or did Picolo’s son, Jimmy Junior, want to take charge of his father’s multiple and highly successful businesses?
What about nutty Coco Peterson? A driver for Picolo, the weird little pest (as some might call him) has been MIA since his boss’ murder. Alas, while searching Picolo’s million-dollar Haleiwa retreat, the we discover “bits” of Coco—his tattoo and jewelry. It appears pesty Coco is another casualty, but locating the rest of him is as difficult as proving Buddy innocent.
