A missing rich man. A brassy lady Pinkerton with a lot to prove. Can she find him before it's too late?
Laurel is dreading the upcoming Thanksgiving drama in Mississippi. Alone and bored in the Pinkerton office, she answers a call for help that sets her off in a race across the city.
Gerald Eymann owns an ice factory and ice houses all over Dallas. When he turns up missing one morning, his wife makes a desperate call to the Pinkerton office.
Laurel barely gets a grasp on the facts before they start to twist and turn on her. Who is the mystery girl Gerald was so taken with at a night club? Where is his strangely absent step-son? What about the doctor, an "old friend" of his wife's, who is keeping her supplied with nerve pills?
Laurel barrels through Dallas, looking high and low for the missing man, ever-mindful of her angry Pinkerton boss and the ticking clock.
The Case of the Ice Man is the second of the Laurel Private Eye series of cozy historical mysteries. If you like witty repartee, surprising turns, and colorful characters, you'll love this fresh take on the classic detective fiction from a woman's perspective.
