The Senior Sleuths Mysteries (2 book series)
From Book 1: When an alarm goes off at the Skyline Vista Condos, a posh high-rise building for the active and engaging senior set, a body is found...Dead in Bed. When police are left with little evidence to find the killer, the adventure begins for our Senior Sleuths. Dick and Dora Zimmerman follow the clues through New York neighborhoods from Lower Manhattan to the Meatpacking District to Brooklyn before the trail turns cold and a killer gets away with the goods.
Dick and Dora Zimmerman aren’t your average senior couple. They solve crimes together, including murder. They are reminiscent of the beloved Thin Man characters, Nick and Nora Charles. Along with their friends, like Zero the Bookie and Frankie Socks, fresh from the Witness Protection Program, the Zimms are sleuths with the time, the money, the smarts, and the chutzpah to uncover and piece together the clues to chase down their foe.
From Book 2: Why was the man in seat 4-A murdered?
The Las Vegas sheriff is not happy to have Dick and Dora back in town, especially since they arrived on a plane with a dead body. When the senior sleuthing couple is around, trouble is not far behind.
When Dora is kidnapped and taken to The Mob Museum along with Zero’s new girlfriend, who he only just met on an online gambling site, Dick and his cohorts embark on a frantic journey to get them back. Along the way they meet a dangerous cast of characters ranging from cheats and embezzlers to cold blooded killers. For Dick and Dora, the race is on to catch a murderer before someone else becomes a victim.
Like Nick and Nora Charles from The Thin Man series, Dick and Dora Zimmerman from The Senior Sleuth Mysteries make it their business to solve crimes along with friends like Zero the Bookie and Frankie Socks, fresh out of the Witness Protection Program.
