Storyline

Sextegenarian Heddy Wainthropp lives alone with her husband Robert but is frustrated that she is three years short of a pension for herself. When the owner of a local Pakistani convenience store needs help when his wife becomes pregnant, the spunky Heddy takes the job. When she catches Geoffrey, a young teenage runaway shoplifting, she tries to rehabilitate him by making him her assistant in her fledgling detective agency, a role she feels she was born to play. She suspects a young homeless couple have been cashing the pension checks of an elderly woman whom they say is too ill to do it herself. Armed with her first case, she enlists Geoff's help in discovering the woman is dead from a fractured skull inside her apartment... locked from the outside. When an inquest rules it an accident the detective duo pursue the matter despite interference from a mysterious outside source. Written by duke1029@aol.com
