A time for fitness: A daily exercise guide for the Christian by Fran Carlton

Houstonian Tony Aapt would do almost anything but sell hamburgers to get out of the Private Investigations business he inherited from his grandfather, along with a pile of debt, so he reluctantly subsists on what he wryly refers to as domestic reconnaissance- wife- or husband-watching. Suddenly, what appears to be a Big Break arises: Fifty-something Maggie Hawk retires from bartending because she wins a magazine company Sweepstakes, and hires Tony, with an outrageously high retainer, to investigate the murder of her husband and the theft of his very valuable invention. But there are a couple of problems: The husband died thirty-three years ago, a year or so before Tony was born; He was obviously a suicide. Maggies determined, though, and Tonys broke, so he takes the case - and Maggies big check - and wings it. The suspects that inhabit and inhibit Tonys cobbled-together investigation include the Cauliflower Man, the Video King and the VKs embezzler mistress, an aging Oldsmobile named Hizzie, Tonys upscaling twice-ex-wife, Rice University with an Aedifice Complex, Dr. Potty, June Cleaver, the cat-from-hell, a man who dresses like Marlene Dietrich, and Jason Woods, a Texas billionaire who yearns to discover a comet and will buy or kill just about anyone that threatens him. Although Tony goes into the investigation certain theres not much point in it, he surprises himself by stumbling onto indications that Maggie may be correct that her husbands supposed suicide was really a murder. So many indications, in fact, that suddenly hes confronted with a choice: He can sell himself, or he can die.< P>Rex Anderson grew up on a farm near Ponca City, Oklahoma. He now lives in Houston, which he finds to be a perfect setting for mysteries.
