Diner Impossible is the third book in the Rose Strickland mystery series and features a part-time waitress and amateur sleuth trying to prove the innocence of a crooked sheriff (available November 11, 2013).
Rose and her best friend Roxy wait tables in Ma’s Diner, run by the feisty senior citizen Ma Ferguson, whose nearly seven-foot-tall son, Ray, is the cook. Like any other diner, the pace of customers ebbs and flows. I’ll let Rose describe a typical morning.
Things picked up around eleven, when we were suddenly invaded. My bud, Axton, stormed into the diner with a posse of seven men and two women. All dressed as Klingons in battle gear, they called themselves the KAWs—Klingon Alliance of Warriors.
“Uh, uh!” they grunted, raising their claw-tipped gloves in the air. Immediately shoving three tables together, they sat and spoke to each other in their guttural native Klingon tongue.
