Synopsis: People don't vanish into thin air. Yet that's what happened to Tom Whatley, the husband of one of Merry Kramer's coworkers at The News. And in his place? A strange corpse lay in the Whatleys' garage.

As if a missing-person/murder case weren't challenging enough, a beautiful new rival was rattling Merry's faith in her blossoming romance with artist Curt Carlyle. And Merry's search for the scoop put her directly in the path of a killer...spelling potential doom for this spunky sleuth.
