Retired CIA operative Phoenix Smith and her dog Achilles are back for another adventure alongside Phoenix's lifelong chum, Annalynn Carr Keyser, acting sheriff of Laycock, Missouri. The story hits the ground running with lots of action right away.

A bank has been robbed, valuable gold coins are missing and every member of the extended family of the ne'er-do-wells involved seem to be acting suspiciously. In a reversal of the norm, Phoenix and Annalynn find themselves under investigation by the FBI. Meanwhile, Phoenix faces personal decisions about her love life, has to help stage a community theater musical, and also must dodge mysterious attempts on her life.

This is the third book in the Show Me mystery series, and the core group of characters are growing nicely into their roles. An enjoyable read
