Verses which do not teach men new and moving truths do not deserve to be read
Ali Reynolds a reporter who had attended the police academy, travels to England with her elderly majordomo, Leland Brooks. There is a family reunion for the Brooks family but there is also a secret that has been hidden for years.
Leland left England due to the pressures when he feared someone would expose him as being gay. Soon after his departure, Leland's father changed his will, excluding Leland from his family's estate. Now Leland wants to reconnect with his family but he learns that his father was murdered. The murder was committed after the Korean war and when Ali learns about this she asks Leland if he wants her to look into the murder.
The other segment of the story involves a teenage boy, Lance Tucker, who is in jail for hacking into his school's computer program. Shortly before his scheduled release, he's severely injured in a fire.
Lance developed a new computer program and Ali's fiance, B. Simpson, who owns High Noon, a computer company, fears for the boy's safety.
There were a number of surprises and with someone trying to get the boy's computer program, sometimes it was difficult to tell the good guys from the bad. Ali helps in this case along with her fiance.
The plot moved along well and it was easy to follow the action in both parts of the story although solving the murder of Leland's father was slow moving. I was entertained by the story and it was fun following Ali as she tried to solve a duel mystery shortly before her wedding date.
