The necklace is insured with United Life and Casualty for half a million. The company sends their ace investigator, Dan Mahoney, a Chicagoan still in New Mexico recuperating from events in Flash Food, and romancing the intrepid Elaine Linden, to the scene of the crime. Delayed when his Jeep overheats, Dan catches a ride and is the hapless passenger in a Rollover that kills the driver and lands Dan in Santa Fe s hospital. Dan soon learns the Rollover was no accident. Someone wants him kept out of Wagon Mound at any cost. Dan hasn't lived his life looking over his shoulder and he s not starting now. But when Elaine disappears and people close to the case, like the bank s manager, turn up dead, he suspects there s more going on than a robbery. The note slipped under his rented room s door in the dead of night says it all it s not what you think.
Fast-paced from first to last, Rollover combines the murder mystery with the caper for a captivating read.
