"The noblest art is that of making others happy." P.T. Barnum
Come to Silver Hills. Where new friends are made and a grim reaper is born.
Agnes Willard is moving into Silver Hills. She’s worried about the change and concerned about fitting in. Luckily for her, Florence Bee has decided to take Agnes under her wing.
When Agnes’ cat Tolstoy escapes as they’re getting Agnes settled into her new apartment, they quickly find him across the hall, perched on a dying woman’s chest.
The new friends soon learn three things from the experience:
1. The cat definitely has an instinct for and proclivity toward people who are on death’s doorstep. 2. Finding and avoiding a killer is a really tough way to spend your first days in a new place.
And 3. Agnes truly does have a unique talent for debauching a crime scene.
Vlad Newsome isn’t exactly known as a people person. He’s really more contentious than convivial.
But something’s changed with him, and Flo and Agnes are suspicious.
Vlad’s suddenly “peopling”. He’s shaking hands and even curving his thin lips upward at times in a terrifying imitation of a smile.
Could it be he’s turning over a new leaf? Is he facing a life-changing event that’s made him grow as a person?
He’s up to something. And Flo and Agnes are determined to find out what.
When a woman who had a beef with the reprehensible creature of the night known as Vlad Newsome turns up dead in her home…Vlad appears to be the culprit behind her murder.
Silver City PD certainly believe he’s guilty. But Vlad insists he’s innocent. It’s going to be up to Flo and Co to solve the murder and find the “real” killer. Unfortunately for everyone involved, the ladies arne't at all sure Vlad isn’t the murderer.
Will Flo and Co walk away…leave Vlad to defend himself? If you believe that you haven’t been paying attention.
