Charlie isn't thrilled when a forceful female attorney comes into the office demanding that RJP Investigations locate her missing father in time for an upcoming family reunion. Willie McBride had told people that he was going prospecting for gold in the mountains of southern New Mexico, and now Charlie suspects foul play. She's determined to find him, dead or alive."A good bet!" -Booklist
Recently married, Charlie (Memories Can Be Murder) sees her firefighting husband off to a New Mexico site, then checks the private investigations office where she and her brother work as partners. An unpleasant woman practically forces an unusual case on her: to find her elderly and senile prospecting father-before the family's impending reunion. With very little searching, Charlie finds bizarre characters, a yellowing treasure map, a deserted mine, and a corpse (but is it of the right person?). Fans of Southwestern mysteries will find that Shelton's engaging story, likable heroine, and comfortable prose make this a good choice. Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
