When Emily Brainlee decides to try some new experiences on her first day of retirement, she gets more than she bargained for.
A young man is shot at her table on the cafe terrace she has chosen to sip her cappuccino and suddenly Emily is pitting her wits against all manner of adversaries all vying to retrieve stolen information saved on a flash drive that ends up in her possession.
A tongue-in-cheek crime adventure story set in provincial New Zealand. This second novel by Whangarei author Helena Toren will have you cheering the our grey-haired heroine and her aging IT side-kick as they foil the plans of their adversaries. Toren’s penchant for creating quirky characters is again present in this action-packed tale of murder and mayhem.
