Twenty-two-year-old Imogene Duckworthy has been waiting tables at Huey's Hash in tiny Saltlick, TX, itching to jump out of her rut and become a detective. When Uncle Huey is found murdered in his own diner, a half-frozen package of mesquite-smoked sausage stuffed down his throat, Immy, an unwed mother who has always longed to be a PI, gets her chance to solve a real crime.
Immy's retired librarian mother, Hortense, who always blamed Huey for her husband's death, is hauled in for the crime. Unclear of the exact duties of a PI, Immy starts a fire in the bathroom wastebasket to bust Mother out of jail. On the run from the law with her mother and her toddler daughter, Immy wonders--now what? Time to consult her almost new copy of The Moron's Complete PI Guidebook.
Her attempts to clear her mother's name, then her own, lead to foiling a bank heist, exposing a meth lab, and getting in deeper than is wise with Baxter Killroy, a handsome but shifty cowboy who may have been involved in her father's death several years ago.
