When Ariana Okata's boss is murdered, to her great shock she becomes a suspect. In order to clear her good name and catch the eye of the hunky lead detective on the case, Ariana embarks on a global manhunt for the real killer. More
"I, Ariana Okata, was the window-dressing receptionist for Super Fantastic Mining Company when the unspeakable happened -- my boss, the adorable, fun-loving, gift-giving Ted Davison, was found dead inside his upscale penthouse apartment. Not only was I one of the suspects, I became enamoured of the lead detective, so I had to prove my complete innocence to him, for both legal and personal reasons."
So begin the adventures of Margaret Thatcher worshipping, not-politically-correct Miss Ariana Okata. Trotting the globe in 4-inch stilettos, Ariana manages to avoid the otherworldly gaze of a demonic ex-wife, keep tabs on the suspiciously robotic antics of an overseas investor, attend a devil-raising in the English countryside, enthusiastically join an Egyptian harem of kidnapped foreign women, and develop a crush on an eerily human Japanese robot. The only thorn in her side is a "hippie" cousin named Emma whose goal in life appears to be cramping Ariana's fabulous style.
The Amazing Adventures of Miss Ariana Okata is a romantic comedy and light murder mystery, told by the somewhat-reliable narrator, Ariana.
