Imagine waking up in your son's home, not remembering anything from the day before and being accused of murder. Or consider a male Miss Marple enmeshed in a light-hearted Memento with a dash of Fifty First Dates. In this, the second of the Paul Jacobson geezer-lite mystery series, crotchety octogenarian Jacobson must solve two murders while struggling with the problems of his short-term memory loss. As Paul ends up suspiciously close to a bank robbery, kidnapping and drug bust, his granddaughter, Jennifer, helps him track down the real perpetrators. Paul juggles two girlfriends, experiences the vagaries of romance, and must find a way to stay alive when he confronts the murderer.
