"Fall down funny ... a plot that never stops for gas ... for originality, ingenuity, and moxie, the inimitable Mr. Gores takes the Caddy." - NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEW

In Stubenville, Iowa, an old man attempts to get on a department store escalator but takes a death-defining freestyle tumble instead. A few hours later, in the San Francisco Bay area, brand-new Cadillacs begin disappearing. In come the street-smart private eyes of Daniel Kearny Associates, only to find out it won't be so easy to bring in the herd. It seems tag-teaming Gypsies want the Caddies for a funeral that would make both Motown and Elvis proud, not to mention their not-so-surefooted aging King. Countering the Gypsies scam for scam, the DKA's repomen and -women plunge into a dangerous, fuel-exhaustive duel of wits that takes them from Hawaii to Chicago to New York - and leads to the ultimate scam of them all...

"Fast, furious, and funny, Gores' thriller is packed with pure enjoyment from start to finish." - San Diego Union-Tribune

Like Dashiell Hammett, Joe Gores actually worked as a private eye before he became a mystery writer. He is the winner of three Edgar Awards and broad critical acclaim for his Daniel Kearny Associates series and his other novels, teleplays, and screenplays.

(From back cover)
In the 1980's, the war between the sexes has opened a second front...

Katherine Walden - variously known to her best friends as Kitty, Kate, Kat, and Kay - is an enlightened divorcee, a successful ghost writer, a woman in love - with a married man.

Her four feisty friends form the very cornerstones of her world. But not one of them can understand her happiness. Who would be happy writing other people's books, loving another woman's man?

And each of them decides she has to do something about it...with shattering results that will leave Katherine to pick up the pieces and answer the questions, "Who am I?" "What do I really want?"

"Refreshing and reassuring. ...Ms.Feldman has a great time taking broad swipes at almost every lunacy of the times...Intelligent, bold, and witty...Don't miss it!" - THE ATLANTA JOURNAL-CONSTITUTION

Minerva Dobbs is a character I could really identify with! A 33-year-old, carb-loving, statistics-quoting, chubby brunette actuary who adopts a mangy one-eyed orange cat ... Minerva is in desperate need of a suitable date for her sister's wedding. ...

"Minerva Dobbs knows that happily-ever-after is a fairy tale, especially with a man who asked her to dinner to win a bet. Even if he is gorgeous and successful Calvin Morrisey. Cal knows commitment is impossible, especially with a woman as cranky as Min Dobbs. Even if she does wear great shoes and keeps him on his toes. When they say good-bye at the end of their evening, they cut their losses and agree never to see each other again.
But Fate has other plans and it's not long before Min and Cal meet again. Soon, they're dealing with a jealous ex-boyfriend, Krispy Kreme donuts, a determined psychologist, chaos theory, a freakishly intelligent cat, Chicken Marsala, and more risky propositions than either of them ever dreamed of. Including the biggest gamble of all - true love." (From the back cover)

Are gates to Hell located in the Bermuda Triangle? This is the theory put forth in this book, using Scripture to back up this proposition. Definitely something to think about ...

If you want to see a snooty sorority sister get her comeuppance and learn how the rest of us live, this is the book for you!
