Talia Marby is
working at Lambert’s Fish and Chips shop in the Wrensdale
Arcade. She left her last job and boyfriend to start over.
Working with the Lamberts is just temporary - until she can
find another job in her field. Phil Turnbull, shop owner of
Classic Radiance – vintage lighting, is passing around
a petition to stop a comic book store from moving to the Wrensdale
Arcade. He is harassing all the other shop owners to sign.
Bea Lambert refuses to sign the petition and has it out with
Phil. Later that night when Talia and Bea find Phil dead in
his shop, the police think Bea makes a perfect prime suspect.
Talia is busy summoning up her inner Nancy Drew. She had better
be careful solving this murder, or she might end up as catch
of the day.
Things to ponder: How did Nana’s favorite
hat end up on the floor? Why was Bea snooping around the scene
of the crime? Did Suzy lie about signing the petition? What
does Phil have against a comic book store?
