Back Cover / Inside Flap:"Fresh from her smashing success with the Alvirah and Willy stories of The Lottery Winner, the Queen of Suspense has gone straight to the top to create an extraordinary new sleuthing couple - Henry and Sunday, a dashing ex-president and his young congresswoman bride.

Henry Parker Britland IV is wealthy, worldly and still youthful - and enjoying an early retirement. His new wife, Sunday, as clever as she is lovely, has just been elected to Congress in a stunning upset victory that has made her a media darling. Henry and Sunday make a formidable team - and never more so than when they set out to solve baffling crimes occurring among their friends in political high society. From a long-unsolved case reconstructed aboard the presidential yacht to a kidnapping that brings Henry frantically back to the White House, the former president and his bride engage in some of the most audacious and original sleuthing ever imagined.

With her trademark skill at creating spellbinding suspense tinged with wit and more than a little romance, the mistress of suspense introduces another irresistible sleuthing duo who deliver entertainment of a higher order."


Review:Let's get something straight right off the bat: this is not serious reading. This is good, clean, fun reading when you need to fill time. Strong plot lines - not so much. Three captivating short stories? Yes. Henry and Sunday are the young, vivacious couple that all of Washington adores. As caring as they are charming, they set out to help others at every turn. Very reminiscent of "Partners in Crime" by Agatha Christie. Enjoy!
