Description

The second book in the Josephine Fuller mystery series. While in San Diego, plus-sized P.I. Jo Fuller does a favor for the worried and way too fashionably thin Sally Rhymer by looking into her daughter Amy's involvement with some do-gooders. Jo, as sassy as she is statuesque, becomes the life of the party when she tells off Mrs. Rhymer's drunken and disorderly ex, Admiral Rhymer—and then walks into a crime scene, the quite unnatural death of the Admiral's friend, a defense contractor. It seems big, beautiful Amy's problems are small compared to the rest of her larger-than-life family. The admiral has disappeared and a ransom note confirms Jo's worst suspicion: The old goat has been kidnapped. An empty safe that once contained top-secret documents, a family that isn't sure it wants to pay a ransom to get the old man back, and a desperate blackmailer put Jo in the crosshairs of a killer's line of fire.

From Publishers Weekly

Apr 03, 2000 – Full-figured investigator Josephine Fuller, who looks into charities for her philanthropist employer, finds herself embroiled in kidnapping and murder in her second, darker outing (after Larger Than Death). When her San Diego patron, Alicia Madrone, asks Jo to look into how Amy Russo, daughter of an old friend, is involved in the spurious-sounding Feather Heart Project, Jo expects the assignment to be simple. But she realizes otherwise after meeting Amy's lascivious, retired admiral father and his two buddies and keepers, as well as Amy's Bible-thumping, career navy brother, her chess-genius daughter and her biology professor husband. When the admiral is abducted and one of his buddies is found dead, Jo begins to piece together the subtleties of Amy's family relationships. As Jo hears of missing secret military records and of the admiral's abysmal treatment of his children, she wonders if the perpetrators aren't those nearest to him. Because it opens with Jo grieving over the death of her best friend and dwells on the affairs of a dysfunctional family, this story will disappoint those expecting a witty, lighthearted mystery like Larger Than Death; overcomplicated, it may disappoint others as well.
