Vera Van Alst doesn't normally receive visitors without appointment, but she agrees to see the imperious Muriel Delgado upon arrival. Shortly thereafter, Jordan Bingham is told that her position researching Vera's rare books is being terminated. Evicted from the Van Alst House, Jordan is determined to find out what hold Muriel has over her erstwhile employer. It seems Muriel has designs on Vera's money and property--not to mention a particular interest in her collection of Nero Wolfe first editions. When Jordan discovers a deadly connection between Muriel and the Van Alst family, it's up to her to put the house in order and stop a killer from going back to press.
When she is dismissed from her job without explanation, Jordan Bingham, researcher for the reclusive book collector Vera Van Alst, must save her former employer from a mysterious new visitor who has designs on her money, property and Nero Wolfe first editions.

The other books in this series are good but this is the best so far. The characters along with the cats and dogs are interesting and funny. Then to add Nero and Archie into the story I was in heaven.

These books are schlocky detective novels written from the point of view of a female. So if you love schlocky detective novels like I love schlocky detective novels be sure to read these. they even have cute dogs. Cant wait for the 4th one.

I have enjoyed all three books in this outstanding series.

Many cozy mysteries series start to lose steam, so to speak, as additional volumes are released, but not this series. When I read the series' 1st book, "The Christie Curse", I found it to have worth, but feared that if the writing dissolved in to a lesser form, the future books wouldn't even be worth opening. I needn't feared. The writing style and plot of each and every book has been better and better. This book was exciting (in a cozy sort of way), until the very end. I highly recommend it!!!!
