    A smart and resourceful female private detective, Theodolinda ("Dol") Bonner is successful enough to own her own detective agency.

This novel was the basis of the 1992 television movie, Lady Against the Odds, starring Crystal Bernard as Bonner.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
