Dead Men Don’t Order Flake

Synopsis

On the night Leo Stone returns—notionally from the dead, in reality from the Democratic Republic of the Congo—Cass Tuplin gets a call from Gary Kellett. A call about an actual dead person: Gary's daughter, killed in a car crash. Gary's adamant it wasn't an accident.Cass agrees to investigate. After all, not just Rusty Bore's only purveyor of fine fast food, Cass is also the closest thing to a private detective within a couple of hundred k's. The local police (Cass's son Dean) try to warn her off. It's true Cass's status as a celebrated yet non-licensed nobody doesn't entirely suit Dean. But Dean also believes Gary's a delusional, grieving father. Is that the case? Or did a young journalist die after asking too many questions?Cass intends to find out. As soon as she's dealt with some queries raised by the reappearance of Leo Stone.
