Former chief warrant officer and amputee Sam Blackman and his partner, Nakayla Robertson, are opening a detective agency. They have high hopes that the thriving Mountain Region' will provide a steady stream of cases.

Their first client, a quirky elderly woman in a retirement community, makes a strange request: she wants Sam to right a wrong she committed over seventy years ago. Her victim? F. Scott Fitzgerald. Her crime? Stealing a manuscript when Fitzgerald resided in the stately Grove Park Inn. Sam's task seems simple enough: retrieve the woman's lockbox and deliver the manuscript to Fitzgerald's heirs.

    I listened to this one--fourth in the series and immediately got the very first one--It was excellent with two lead characters that seemed real and meshed well. I love the way the stories are developed without the gratuitous mayhem that many of the genre have.
