No one can say that Desiree Shapiro, New Yorkâ€™s chubbiest

Pirrelli wants to find out who really killed her fatherâ€™s
mistress â€”a crime for which he went to jailâ€”Desiree
to ignore all the reasons sheâ€™d have to be crazy to take
the case. The murder occurred a decade ago, on the eve of
Vickyâ€™s sixth birthday, so itâ€™s almost certain the
will be tainted or even nonexistent. The truth wonâ€™t help

Desiree has been assured that sheâ€™ll be adequately
compensated for her services with Vickyâ€™s baby-sitting
money. Still, Desiree agrees to look into thingsâ€”and

â€śFinally, thereâ€™s a private eye we can embraceâ€”she doesnâ€™t

without a slight detour.â€ťâ€”Joan Hess
