In the turbulent '60s, Cat was raising kids. Now she's raising questions-about the murder of a peace activist.
From the back cover: "All Cat wants to do is get her youngest daughter through school. But now she's thinking about somebody else's college career: the former student activist who was just brutally murdered...at a peace rally! Desparate for a suspect, the cops want to send Cat's friend to jail for the crime...."
Suspicion is second nature to any woman who's raised three kids. So Cat Caliban figures she has what it takes to be Cincinnati's smartest snoop: an eye for evidence, a talent for spotting lies, the sharp wit of Erma Bombeck -- and the detection skills of Sam Spade...
Third in the series, someone kills an anti-war activist from the '60's at an anti-war rally in present day, and a friend of Cat's is mistakenly(?) hounded by the police. Quite funny, light hearted, yet pulls at the heart strings.
Wonderful sense of humor! A little strong language at times, but funny none the less. She's easy for us "seniors" to identify with.
