With her nearly broke and practically homeless mother about to land on her doorstep, Robyn Guthrie learns that desperation can play havoc with a daughter’s scruples. Otherwise, why would she even consider kidnapping a goat and holding it for ransom?

First Line

The idea of stealing the money first came to me as I stood in line at Lundergren’s Liquors, my fist wrapped around a six-dollar liter of Chablis.


Brod’s snappy mystery involves a goat kidnapping, extortion, the complications of mother-daughter relationships, and issues of elder care. Karen Savage shines in her portrayals of all the characters who are making Robyn Gutherie's life hell as she tries to figure out how to get enough money to care for her spunky, fibbing, fading mother. Savage's use of tonal differences and pacing effectively makes each character distinct. Her acting skills do much to keep the listener guessing as new twists add to this Capra-style comedic mystery. A fun listen that will keep you laughing. -- AudioFile Magazine - Read More

Brod (Heartstone) expertly blends suspenseful action with characters readers will care for, in particular his sympathetic and plausible lead. -- Publishers Weekly
