Trixie doesn’t really mind Al Capone’s ghost hanging around her building. It’s what he left behind that threatens her!
Even if she’s not interested in Al’s legacy, she can’t keep other people from wanting to find it.
Trixie’s ready to open her tearoom and gift shop on the second floor of the reputedly haunted Quimby Building. She’s established an uneasy truce with Police Chief Doug Everton–after all, they have a mutual secret to guard. Her high school chum Rudy has his life back together. Candace King is determined to make Dreamland appreciate its history. Danny Jefferson has discovered a hidden talent for photography but manages to take all the wrong pictures at the right time. And Trixie’s and Mitch’s budding friendship is at the point of blooming. Unfortunately, they’re all wrong in believing the town’s recent dirty dealings are over and done with.
Enter a new assortment of unsettling characters: two FBI agents, one of whom may be rogue; Ross Carrow, Rudy’s ex-army buddy, who runs the Moonlight Tattoo Parlor when he’s not out stirring up trouble; and Sean Mercer, a forensic anthropologist whose curiosity may well end up killing more than the proverbial cat. The second floor of the Quimby Building, once the Castle Casino and soon to be Trixie’s Treasures, becomes a volcano of erupting secrets and dangerous doings.
Can Trixie dig in her heels one more time? Does she even want to? Find out in Desperate Deception in Dreamland.
