Murder Talks Turkey

It's finally spring in Michigan's Upper Peninsula, and the locals have only one thing on their minds—the turkey-hunting opener.

But for sheer adrenaline value, not even turkey season can compete with the local Credit Union getting held up at gunpoint. Committing a robbery in a town where everyone is armed for combat is not the smartest thing to do, and the gunman is shot dead right there in the Stonely Credit Union lobby. The only problem is, in a room full of camo-wearing, heat-packing witnesses, the stolen money has mysteriously vanished.

Faster than you can say "Tom Turkey," Gertie, Cora Mae, and Kitty are on the case in this hoot of a whodunit.
