(From the publisher):
Mallory was bored: ex-cop, Vietnam vet, struggling writer - and nothing was happening in his life now. So, reluctantly, he agrees when a girlfriend asks him to deliver meals to housebound, elderly women. It's something to do, after all, and as it turns out, his house calls turn into a pleasant surprise. The ladies find him charming and the stories they tell, their memories of the small Iowa town, are fascinating. Mallory discovers that he's having fun.
Then he discovers that one of his clients has been murdered and the fun ends ... with a sharp blow to Mallory's skull. Now he isn't bored, he's angry. So angry, that when the sheriff tells him to stay out of it, Mallory enters the fray with a vengeance!
