A Claire Gulliver Mystery
Claire, owner of Gulliver’s Travels Book Store, is now back in the safety of her own world and the minutiae of the day to day requirements of her business. Claire has put all of excitement and danger of her first experience of international travel out of her mind. Until the day the letter came from David Lickman, the President and CEO of Vantage Airlines. His warm and cordial invitation was too good to refuse so she didn’t.
But Claire had learned her lessons in life. So after a scary knife attack made on her was thwarted without injury that first night on the Washington Mall, she made the most sensible decision possible. She was out of there!
After she had her meeting with the Vantage executives the next morning, she planned to head toward the airport and the safety of her bookshop. But it didn’t work that way. As David Lickman pointed out, going home and hiding wouldn’t make her safer if that attack on her was of a personal nature instead of a random incident. They needed to know what had happened before they took any action to avert further danger. Claire was appalled to realize they were right. Her flight to the familiar was as likely to be more dangerous for her than it was to propel her into safety. Therefore, she agreed to wait while the authorities tried to sort it all out.
Washington Weirdos is a warm, compelling, edge-of-the-seat drama played out against the background of our nation’s capital. Join Claire at the Lickman’s estate in Maryland for the festive Labor Weekend Gala. Meet the Lickman’s granddaughters, Jo-Jo and Amy, Tuffy their adorable dog, and the loyal household staff as well as the key players at Vantage Airlines while the days pass and the mystery deepens. Something is not right. Something is going on. But the “what” and the “why” of the mystery is still to be determined.
