1st ed.
Valued customer and old friend Thelma Chatwick is dead, and intrepid Denver dry cleaner Mandy Dyer is called upon to brush up her sleuthing skills and tidy up the investigation's loose ends. Why did Thelma insist on saving seemingly worthless garments-could her motives have something to do with the unusual buttons Thelma collected? When Mandy decides to hire a private detective, the reluctant gumshoe turns out to be none other than a rough, handsome heartbreaker Mandy stood up in high school. He's still a good-looking guy, but he has since transformed himself into Mr. Clean. Romance is a distinct possibility; if, that is, the pair can outwit a murderer. Mandy is also reunited in this adventure with her indispensable right-hand man, Mack Rivers; the all-too-dispensable Betty-the-bag-lady; and Nat, wonderboy reporter. Will they be able to help Mandy get the case all sewn up? Will the truth of Thelma's demise come out in the wash? Or will the witnesses button their lips and let Mandy get the starch knocked out of her? Sit back and relax-Mandy will get the whole mystery ironed out in no time. We guarantee that Buttons and Foes will pick up your spirits and deliver a rousing good time.
