Carlotta Moses a retired operatic diva and movie star is opening a museum in Lebanon, Ohio soon and a tabloid television program is planning to air an unfavorable story about her beforehand. Private Investigator Patricia Delaney accepts the employment offer to find the contact source to the tabloid report Wayne Hackman has for his story. As the investigation begins, Patricia’s father arrives looking for a place to stay after leaving his wife and her mother who eventually aids Patricia in the mysterious case.
Carlotta’s immediate family is very protective in guarding her reputation and declining state of mind but she is not as fragile as everyone believes and is not forthcoming about the situation she is in by keeping detrimental secrets that are deadly in nature.
Sharon Short keeps it coming in the third and final installment of The Patricia Delaney eGumshoe Mystery Series. Another good crime drama with twists, turns, and plenty of mystery set in the 1990’s. Amateur sleuths will enjoy this quick and easy read any day of the week or weekend.
