Summary
Bookstore owner Claire Malloy is shocked to received a phone call from her cousin Ronnie Landonwood. Claire thought Ronnie had died in a Mexican prison after being convicted of the murder of a Hollywood director many years ago. Ronnie is now an eminent scientist, and a blackmailer is threatening to expose her past; she needs Claire's help. Claire and her daughter Caron travel to Acapulco, to identify the blackmailer. There a kidnapping, an assault, and a murder occur; and all the witnesses are either long dead or missing. Readers may also enjoy the mystery series of Carolyn G. Hart (Annie and Max Darling), Gillian Roberts, and Nancy Pickard. (Description by: Sue O'Brien) --
