Synopsis: The year is 1954, and Paige Turner is a feisty young widow with Brenda Starr bravado and a fixation with following in Agatha Christie's footsteps. Trouble is, she works like a dog at Daring Detective magazine and her lousy pun of a name has made her the butt of all office jokes.
All she wants is to pen a memorable mystery. Enter the corpse of twenty-four-year-old beauty Babs Comstock, found with a Hop along Cassidy jump rope wrapped around her neck. Now, Paige has to find a murderer and tell the tale that could make her writing career -- or cut short her life.
