Tyler Knight’s 40th birthday is fast approaching, and her ex husband has threatened she won’t live to see that day. Like the Cole Porter lyrics … Get out of town … Before it’s too late … Tyler quits a going-nowhere job and moves to Southern Indiana where she sets up shop for private investigations. Before her detective license arrives, unusual advertising leads successful young Realtor Sally Ann Lowe to hire Tyler to find who is terrifying her with sinister phone calls, a predicament all too familiar to Tyler. When Sally Ann stumbles on a dead man with a phone cord wrapped around his neck, Tyler is caught up in murder, and she may be in over her head. The investigation follows a path of greed and ambition from wealthy, sophisticated Columbus, to the tiny town of Bean Blossom, to the tourist Mecca of Forest Hills, to gambling in The Grand Victoria Casino, testing Tyler’s intelligence and resourcefulness as she races through danger to a jolting finish.
