The various members of the Lunghi family are old and cantankerous, young and bolshie, responsible, clever, and even artistic. But relentless curiosity is the one quality they all possess. The Lunghi Detective Agency's latest client, pretty, thirty-something Eileen Shayler, suspects that her husband, Jack Shayler, is in terrible trouble.

When the case suddenly collides with several others, the Lunghis will find themselves knee-deep in an unsolved murder, a mysterious stakeout, and some damning personal secrets.… (more)
