(From the publisher):
After some fifty-odd years of blameless living, Georgianna Adkins' boy, Teddy, is in a mess, socked with a paternity suit by a salesgirl.
It is not a case that Jimmie Jarvis' law firm would ordinarily touch. But old bluebloods stick together, so to Jimmie himself falls the unappealing defense of Teddy -- whose resemblance to a beaming, middle-aged cherub makes the whole thing seem absurd.
In truth, Teddy is quite a puzzle, as Jimmie's housekeeper realizes when Teddy comes calling, curiously often. If her friend Jasper Tully, chief investigator for the D.A., were around, she would mention it. But Jasper is tied up with a sensational murder case involving a series of brutal strangulations...
