Unemployed teacher Mary Malone faces a serious dilemma when her private investigator brother Matt, who has been overseas for seven months, announces he is returning to Minnesota in three weeks. How is this amateur sleuth going to explain to him about his missing dog? And what about the murder cases she has taken on in his absence, especially the one in progress? Without the help of her widowed aunt and neighbor Mrs. Grimshaw this time, can Mary succeed in finding the dog and solving the death of Don Hickleman, owner of Hickleman Pickle Plant, before Matt discovers what she’s been hiding from him?

About The Book:  THE LAST WAR     
An accidental explosion in a secret Iranian nuclear facility is detected by the United States Military. Their response leads to yet another war in the Middle East. This time, however, the deaths of thousands of innocent Israeli citizens has created a new calculus, and Israel will now accept nothing less than the complete destruction of Hezbollah. The world watches and hopes that this conflict will indeed be the last war.
