This week, head back to Prohibition-era New York with a visual tour of Maia Chance's third Discreet Retrieval Agency Mystery, Gin and Panic!

Former socialite Lola Woodby is now struggling to make ends meet as a not-so-discreet private eye in Prohibtion-era New York City, along with her stern Swedish sidekick, Berta.

When they’re offered a piece-of-cake job…

Retrieving a rhinoceros trophy from the Connecticut mansion of big game hunter Rudy Montgomery…

It seems like a no-brainer.

After all, their client, Lord Sudley, promises them a handsome paycheck…

And the gin and tonics will be plentiful and free.

But no sooner do they arrive at Montgomery Hall than Rudy is shot dead.

When the police arrive to examine the scene, they conclude that Rudy had actually committed suicide.

But Lord Sudley can’t believe his friend would have done that…

And there’s a houseful of suspicious characters standing by.

So Lord Sudley ups the ante for Lola and Berta, and suddenly, their easy retrieval job has turned into a murder investigation.

Armed with handbags stuffed with emergency chocolate, gin flasks, and a Colt .25…

Lola and Berta are swiftly embroiled in a madcap puzzle of stolen diamonds…

Family secrets…

A clutch of gangsters…

And plenty of suspects who know their way around a safari rifle.

Gin and Panic is the next jaunty, compelling Discreet Retrieval Agency mystery from beloved crime writer Maia Chance.
