Joseph's Kidnapping

(The second book in the Ace Edwards series)
A novel by

A three a.m. phone call launches Private Investigator Arthur Conan Edwards (Ace) of Dallas into Joseph's Kidnapping. Chip Jamison, gentleman rancher in historic Canton, Texas hires Ace to rescue Joseph from his kidnappers. Joseph is recovered but a brutally murdered body adds to his dilemma when it's determined that he is the likely suspect. Ace and his cats, Sweeper and Striker, dodge danger at every turn - surveillance, a skunking, locals who believe Joseph guilty, and a man-eating female lawyer bent on suing Chip into poverty - leading to a final confrontation. Ace meets Chip's sister, Wanda who teaches him the history of Canton and Van Zandt County and introduces him to the First Monday Trade Days extravaganza. She also lends romance to Ace's adventure while frustrating him with her hair-trigger temper.
