It seemed like any other routine appraisal. But that was before Marty found out about the theft, the illegal gambling and other questionable activities, and then there was the note in the book. A note that resulted in twenty police officers putting their lives on the line to arrest those responsible.
When Marty’s hired to do an appraisal at a storage unit and the residence of the wife of a Palm Springs detective, she had no reason to think that there would be a problem with it.
The appraisal looked pretty run-of-mill with its small antique items and furniture, but that was before Marty discovered that all of the antiques she’d appraised in the storage unit had been stolen. And then several hours later her friend, Carl, who was appraising the antique books at the client’s residence, found the note. The note that caused an all-points bulletin to be issued for a man who was going to be murdered.
When Marty’s client decided to stay at a spa for a few days while the appraisal was taking place, a spa for a total mind, body, and spirit rejuvenation, who knew that meant she wouldn’t be able to be contacted. But when her husband is about to be murdered, rejuvenation is no longer an issue, locating him and saving his life takes precedence.
And Marty had no idea that Patron, her psychic boxer guard dog, would end up on the Palm Springs police force. But since he’d saved her husband Jeff’s life, she’d be the first to say that Patron deserved it!
