But Jim Dandy finds himself entering into exactly that. The next last thing he had on his mind is finding a dead body with a bonsai in its chest; but again, poor Jim is the one to make this gruesome discovery. To make matters worse, Jim is then placed under suspicion for the murder. All the while, his new girlfriend, Dodee, wants to risk her life in an effort to track down the real killer!

Murder at an elderhostel in New Jersey where they are learning bonsai. Cold night at the beach. Jim Dandy (JHames P. Dandy) is a widower. Lots of sex at the elderhostel. Read full review
