"The rather odd couple who appear on Jane da Silva's doorstep are either magazine salespeople-or the answer to her prayer for another hopeless case. It turns out that the bookish man and nervous young woman are worried that Irene March, their co-worker at a news clipping service, has met with foul play. They explain that Irene began acting 'stresses' after she became a contestant on Jeopardy!-and won. The mousy spinster had turned into a cutthroat competitor the moment she stepped before the TV cameras. Now, twenty thousand dollars richer, she appears to have vanished. The police don't seem to care, their boss is already looking for a replacement, and the two co-workers feel helpless-and hopeless. That's just perfect for Jane da Silva, who can only collect on her eccentric uncle's vast legacy whenever she solves a mystery everyone else has given up on!"; Ex-Library; 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall
