Trouble starts for small-town newspaper publisher and editor Garth Ryland when he finds an abandoned 1936 Cadillac in a barn in Oakalla, Wis. At first delighted with his discovery, Garth sets about getting extensive bodywork done on the vintage car in time to make it a surprise birthday present for his elderly and feisty housekeeper, Ruth. But misfortunes plague the mechanics who work on the Caddythe first disappears; the second has a suspicious fire in his garage. When the car is tied in with a 40-year-old hit-and-run accident, a missing fortune and the May-December marriage of a local beauty, Garth finds himself torn between helping solve the myriad mysteries and putting out his newspaper. A warm, folksy atmosphere and a leisurely pace are this book's strongest recommendations. Riggs wrote The Last Laugh.
