Jake Russo thought he was going on vacation. When he took a break from reporting to visit Wisconsin, he and his girlfriend expected hot chocolate and hot tubs. Their only plan was to watch the taping of an old time radio show.
But plans change when a blizzard leaves them marooned in the estate of the show's host--along with a dead body. Jake has to discover the show's secrets, interrogate the bickering suspects, and defend his girlfriend from a potential suitor. Jake's octogenarian photographer and his wife help in their own unique ways as the bodies pile up.
As Jake and his friends try to crack the case, they'll face near starvation, bumbling police, and a bad vaudeville act trying to make it big. It will take all of Jake's wits to escape the estate with his relationships--and life--in tact.
Like a night spent by the radio with a mug of hot chocolate, this humorous mystery is a cozy adventure.
