Antiques, polo, and relationships. What do they have in common? Murder!Why was the Palm Springs polo club owner’s fiancée, Pia, murdered? Things like old relationships, Mafia vendettas, and fighting over inheritances play a part in this cozy mystery. Jack Rutledge, the owner of a world class polo club in Palm Springs hires Marty Combs, an antique appraiser, to evaluate Jack’s collection of art pottery and Pia’s recently inherited collection of art glass. When Marty and her husband Jeff, a Palm Springs Police Detective, attend a cocktail party at the Rutledge Polo Club, they find themselves in the middle of a murder mystery.
Who killed Pia? Was it Kevin, the has-been polo player jealous of Jack’s success? Roberto, the reputed second-in-command of the West Coast Mafia who loved Pia? Gerta, Pia’s sister, who feels the art glass collection that was willed to Pia should be hers? Pia’s ex-husband, a felon newly released from prison? Jensen, Jack’s son, who’d been promised he would inherit Jack’s very valuable art pottery collection, or even Lupe, the polo club owner’s maid?
Join the group of friends who live in a high desert compound outside Palm Springs with Duke, Marty’s pink bootie wearing Labrador retriever, as they try to figure out who the murderer is before Marty becomes the next victim.
Another fast-paced mystery exploring money and relationships. As always, there’s plenty of food and recipes from Dianne Harman, a seven time Amazon All-Star author.
