Lalla Bains, ex-model and pilot has plenty to keep her busy during another long hot summer of Aero Ag work in the San Joaquin Valley of California. But when homeless Gulf War veteran, convicted felon and now love-sick stalker, Billy Wayne Dobson, litters her vintage red caddy with paper snowflakes, Lalla figures it’s time for a showdown. Unfortunately, someone else has the same idea—leaving Lalla with a dying man at her feet and only his strange last words, "The more there is, the less you see," as the only clue to who killed him. No one wants her involved in the investigation; certainly not the creepy detective who slithers across her path every chance he gets, and not the local newspaper reporter whose annoying high-jinks cause her to want to set fire to the last three hairs on his head. Then there’s her tight-wad dad who is presently squiring Lalla's grade-school teacher to funerals and the wakes so he won't have to shell out the dough for dinner. And Lalla's love interest, Sheriff Caleb Stone, can only wish he could reign in Lalla's enthusiasm for sleuthing where she’s not welcome. But Lalla hasn’t any respect for the boundaries of lawmen, much less a dangerous killer who threatens her family. Resolved that if anyone is going to solve this case, it's going to be the one person whose character and reputation is once again on the line...and that person will be Ms. Lalla Bains.
“This crackpot reporter is insinuating that I drove him to do it?” “Don't you give it any mind. It’s just a damn shame you were involved with that trouble last year.”“Oh, yeah that trouble, and God forbid anyone else forget it either.”Lalla Bains 1st paragraph 1st chapter
“Halfway down the block I glanced out of the side mirror and was shocked to see my dad forcing Mrs. Dobson’s gun hand into the air. I rounded the corner on two wheels and hoped to God another member of the Bains family wasn't about to be arrested—or shot.”from Chapter 8
