It’s promo day #1 for Coco’s Nuts—you can get it for a mere 99 cents. (You can’t even buy a chocolate bar for that anymore, unless you maybe go to the discount store.)
Coco’s Nuts, the third mystery in the Triple Threat Investigation Agency series, finds the three rookie private eyes—JJ, Rey, and Linda—entrenched in their second professional assignment: proving socialite-turned-trucker Buddy Feuer did not shoot her boss, infamous entrepreneur Jimmy Picolo.
Despite what police believe and evidence suggests, JJ, Rey and Linda are convinced that Buddy has been set up. In their quest for answers, the trio contends with a slew of suspects. Several persons hated Picolo enough to kill him, but locating the one who pulled the trigger proves challenging and the threesome strives to uncover a killer amid a cast of curious and unconventional characters.
Their detecting travels lead them along a few detours, like the world of gambling and debt collectors, also known as limb-breakers. Picolo’s daughter, Annia, owes thousands of dollars to them in Vegas and Oahu. Could this have motivated her to kill her father—so that she could collect a sizeable inheritance? What about Picolo’s son? Was Jimmy Junior overly eager to take over his father’s businesses? What of nutty Coco Peterson, a Picolo employee who has been MIA since the murders occurred? The odd little fellow is a central piece in this perplexing puzzler.
Why was Eb Stretta, Buddy’s best friend, gunned down a few days after Picolo? For that matter, why did someone pump five bullets into Mr. Razor, Picolo’s assistant? Exploding bombs suggest the gals from the Triple Threat Investigation Agency have ruffled feathers by asking too many questions. With any luck, legitimate answers will be obtained before something significant blows up—like the trio.
