Muriel is a brain, and when a dyslexic boy in her class writes her a note in high school, he writes it to Brian. Unfortunately, the teacher confiscates the note and begins to read it to the class. This has followed Muriel Reeves throughout her life.
After many years, she's back in touch with Frank who is now a private investigator. And he needs her help to find a kidnap victim.
That's all I'm going to tell you because this story has a lot of twists and turns, and you certainly won't lose interest.
The one thing I want to add is that it's funny. Laugh out loud funny in places, and that's my favorite kind of book. I was totally entertained by Frank,Incense and Muriel.
The book is filled with interesting characters most of which are quirky. You will fall in love with aunt Val and by the end you will even feel affection for Superman.
The main character, Muriel, has always thought of herself as an intelligent, but boring, "bookworm" in a family of adventurous, thrill seeking people. When she reconnects with Frankie, a former classmate, to help him solve a mystery, she comes to realize there's a lot more to her than her brain and a lot more to life than just books.
author of THE INCONVENIENT CORPSE
Now a private investigator, he enlists her help in finding a former classmate who has disappeared. And the classmate is not someone Muriel likes so she requires some persuasion. However, when she learns who hired Frankie to investigate, someone she does consider a friend, Muriel decides to aid in the investigation, which nearly gets her killed.
Muriel's Aunt Val, a quirky character who is constantly baking cookies for the twelve days of Christmas, enters the plot with her crotch-sniffing dog, Big Boy. When Aunt Val is sideswiped while driving Muriel's car and winds up in the hospital, they wonder if Muriel is the intended victim.
Interviewing the missing woman's neighbors provides more humor and additional mystery as Frankie and Muriel gather evidence and place themselves in danger.
Muriel realizes that she's still attracted to Frankie from their high school days but keeps him at arm's length as he tries to charm her. The plot is filled with intrigue and humor as the pair continues their search for the missing woman. The book is well-paced and the characters well defined. I recommend Albert's novel to anyone who loves a good mystery laced with a little romance and humor. My kind of book.
