Former socialite Lola Woodby is now struggling to make ends
meet as a not-so-discreet private eye in Prohibtion-era New
York City, along with her stern Swedish sidekick, Berta.
When they’re offered a piece-of-cake job—retrieving a
rhinoceros trophy from the Connecticut mansion of big game
hunter Rudy Montgomery—it seems like a no-brainer. After
all, their client, Lord Sudley, promises them a handsome
paycheck, and the gin and tonics will be plentiful and free.
But no sooner do they arrive at Montgomery Hall than Rudy is
When the police arrive to examine the scene, they conclude
that Rudy had actually committed suicide. But Lord Sudley
can’t believe his friend would have done that, and there’s a
houseful of suspicious characters standing by. So Lord
Sudley ups the ante for Lola and Berta, and suddenly, their
easy retrieval job has turned into a murder investigation.
Armed with handbags stuffed with emergency chocolate, gin
flasks, and a Colt .25, Lola and Berta are swiftly embroiled
in a madcap puzzle of stolen diamonds, family secrets, a
clutch of gangsters, and plenty of suspects who know their
way around a safari rifle.
Gin and Panic is the next jaunty, compelling Discreet
Retrieval Agency mystery from beloved crime writer Maia Chance.
