THE RAGMAN MURDERS
1910: Italian immigrants are pouring into New England by the thousands every year. They bring with them their own culture and their own form of justice from the Old World.

How far will Joe and his family go to get their share of the dream?
THE MATTER OF A MURDER OF A MAID
Two socialite sisters in 1930s Boston take it upon themselves to help the police in crime detection. Armed with fountain pen, notepaper, a Mercedes Benz roadster, and plenty of lipstick, Kate and Betty Hadley can fulfill their dreams of living on the edge of excitement as they hunt for clues, gossip and society pages. They don’t have to look for trouble. Trouble just finds them.
The Matter of a Missing Stutz
What do two socialite sisters, two detectives and a Stutz Bearcat roadster have to do with each other? Kate and Betty Hadley stumble across another mystery, involving their father’s best friend, Professor McGovern. Together with Kate’s beau, Det. Casey Roach, and newcomer, Det. Joe Talbot, they search for the missing Stutz and find out why it was stolen.
The girls use methods the police don’t, gossip, the newspaper society pages and intuition, to help solve the case. They don’t look for trouble. Trouble just finds them.

Kate and Betty Hadley team up, again, with Boston police detectives, Joe Talbot and Casey Roach, to find out how a valuable, antique document got into an old copy of a popular book. Who does the document belong to and why did it get there? Not being detectives, the socialite sisters use their spunk, social contacts, and the daily newspaper, to find their way through a maze of plausible owners before finding the real one.
