The Two-Wheeled Detective

by Susan Thompson

Tami is a free spirit. She is a professional temporary employee. No full-time job is going to tie her down. She loves meeting new people, learning new skills, and studying human nature. Her mother said she was nosy, but curiosity is central to Tami’s life.

She loves peanut butter sandwiches and apples, any kind of music, and the wind through her hair as she zooms around on her trusty red

bicycle, Ruby. Her beloved mother gave Tami her first two-wheeler. She has ridden a red bike ever since.

Late one night, Tami rides home from work. She and Ruby suddenly hit a huge pothole on the darkened road. The bicycle flies into the hedges. The damage? A lump on the head, a bloody knee, and a broken wheel!

Tami is skeptical when a young man appears out of the dark to help her. But she has no way of knowing this is just the beginning of a mystery in the big house rising behind her. Her mishap drops her in the middle of a wealthy, unhappy, ambitious family…and a murder! Tami is on the case.

The first of a series, The Two-Wheeled Detective introduces us to a watchful, curious, and tenacious young accidental detective!
