"Jane Kelly sets her newest whodunit in the casino-hardened heart of Atlantic City, and it's as irresistible as walking the boardwalk the first warm weekend of the season. For fans like me, this is as good as getting dealt four aces. ... A winner!"
USA Today bestselling author,
"The Darkwing Chronicles"
Meg Daniels and Andy Beck—better together at the Jersey Shore! But while Andy slaves away at a hotel-casino security job, Meg is doing her best to sleep late, limit her exercise, and get plenty of sand between her toes. Too much free time on this gal's hands always spells trouble, and on this trip it comes courtesy of Johnny Angelini, an Atlantic City lounge singer who channels Frank Sinatra nightly at the hotel bar.
Johnny was just an infant in 1964 when the Democratic Convention came to town and his mother, Betty Boyle, vanished without a trace. Intrigued, Meg hits the Boardwalk running to solve the 50-year-old case and bring some closure for Johnny. As she doggedly tracks down and interviews the surviving witnesses, including a former senator with powerful ties, she stumbles onto a twisted cover-up. Someone is intent on keeping the Boyle case cold—even if that means icing Meg Daniels along with it.
"The Democratic National Convention of 1964 is the perfect flashback setting for this suspenseful, deftly built tale of the disappearance of a young mother. ... As the sleuth, Meg Daniels is as irresistible as she is impetuous."
