About the Book

Kelly O'Quinn is a rookie reporter on the Chicago Daily News in the late 1950s and, although she wants to be a police reporter, she is assigned to writing cheery copy about engagements and weddings in the features department.

She is sent on a routine assignment and literally puts her foot into a case of murder and stolen Mexican antiquities.

She is soon sent to Mexico in pursuit of the story and meets a handsome American and has her life threatened.

She returns to Chicago, where her police-lieutenant father persuades her to act as a decoy to trap the culprits.

About the Author

I met mystery writer Richard S. Prather in my father?s bookstore when I was fourteen. He inscribed a copy of one of his books for me and (perhaps urged by my father) encouraged me to write, saying it was great fun. I said I?d rather play baseball.

Now that my baseball playing days are long over, I have written a mystery. It was great fun.
