With the nursing home about to close for good, can grumpy old man Earl Walker find a killer—and figure out his relationship with his new lady friend—before all the suspects move away? More
WHAT'S THE WORST THAT COULD HAPPEN? For twenty-five years, EARL WALKER has been defined by the two worst things that ever happened to him: The death of his beloved wife, and the bullet that ended his career as a metro bus driver. Now bound to a wheelchair, he lives at Candlewick Retirement Center ... where he barely knows the neighbors. Not that it matters: Following a failed state inspection, residents have thirty days to get out.
When he's dragged from his assisted-living apartment to a clandestine spicy hot chili party, he almost has fun ... until someone ends up dead. Now Earl seems to be the only one suspicious of the way the party-goer met his demise. Can he solve the puzzle—and figure out his relationship with his new lady friend—before Candlewick is closed down and the suspects move away?
