Ricky Steele is on the case, this time hired to find two missed children, who have vanished, poof! The investigation plunges her into the underworld of child trafficking and exploitation as she moves from dark city streets to a wealthy beach front community, where evil lies behind a façade of gentility. Once again, Ricky is joined by her high school buddies, who are visiting for the weekend. Armed with cuffs, pepper spray and stun guns, the three Rambettes jump right into the investigation, mayhem and humor following in their wake.
In this fourth book in the series, Ricky also finds love when Charlie Bowen, or Dr. McDreamy, as her friends call him, moves into her neighborhood and into her heart. His daughter, Mike, who wants to learn the PI business, joins Ricky, Wilda and the gang on yet another breathtaking adventure filled with danger, humor, pathos, and surprise.
A Note from the Author
I am so excited to introduce Ricky’s newest caper. Darker than the previous books, some of its content deeply disturbing, I put the manuscript down many times over the past two years, not having the stomach to continue. The sad reality is that child trafficking is rampant in today’s world and, so I persevered finally completing Poof! There are millions of children worldwide who suffer unspeakable abuse that robs them of their childhood and often their lives. This is one story among thousands. Even as evil lurks at the edges of this latest story, there is also humor, friendship, love and more than the occasional misadventure with Ricky and the gang on the case!
