In the sixth installment of the wildly popular Dixie Hemingway mystery series, Dixie is caring for the cat of a prickly old man whose granddaughter shows up with baby in tow. Dixie desperately tries to save this young woman and her infant from murderous con artists ready to kill in order to hold on to the millions they stole from naive investors. The villains, though, are not run of the mill criminals; they are among the socially prominent movers and shakers in Dixie's town. As with other novels in the series in which Dixie protects, for example, a precocious parrot and a defenseless iguana, in the end, Dixie must confront her greatest fears and try to save the lives of the innocent, both two legged and four. -- From publisher.
