"A winner in this delicious series"
Los Angeles private investigator Regan Reilly is in New
York City for several reasons. She's going to visit her
parents and also attend the crime convention her mother has
put together. She looks forward to seeing her significant
other Jack Reilly, the head of the Big Apple's Major Case
Squad. Unfortunately Regan has little time to visit with
anyone because her friend Thomas Pilsner needs her in her
Thomas is president of the Setler's Club, a place where
people who are free thinkers congregate, exchange new ideas
and have fun. The club is in decline but two of its'
members, Nat and Dan are planning to contribute four
diamonds worth four million dollars to revitalize the
club. Both die before they can give their gift. Thomas
wants Regan to find the missing donation before the
Setler's Club becomes history. Other people are searching
for the diamonds including two very dangerous grifters who
will use any means at their disposal to get what they want.
The fifth installment in the Regan Reilly mystery
series is a humorous private detective novel starring a
heroine who keeps the audience hopping with her many
exploits. The support cast is filled with quirky eccentric
characters that add a vein of humor to the story line.
Carol Higgins Clark, like her mother Mary Higgins Clark, is
a dynamite storyteller who excels at her craft.
