Four months ago when unemployed teacher, Mary Colleen Malone,

moved into her brother's apartment at the Foley in the Twin Cities with

her widowed aunt, she never suspected she'd end up solving a serious

crime, one in which she almost lost her life. Now a twist of fate brings

her to Lake Superior's shores in Duluth and she's forced to take on yet another case. Can our heroine discover what the connection is between

a jewel heist and a missing college student before someone else's life is snuffed out?
