About the Work:
The Man Who Did Too Much is a cozy mystery suspense with emphasis on the humor.
Description: George Starling, former International Man of Intrigue, is retired. In limbo. Waiting in a small town in the middle of nowhere for the woman he rescued to recover enough to know whether she loves him or not. When he gets the call to check out the report that a missing prince was spotted in the company of a local woman, he almost turns the job down. But his girlfriend insists he take it. Perhaps she knows he's drowning.
Karla Marquette is a small-town movie-obsessed spinster, who was just doing a favor for a friend when she took care of that little boy for a weekend. Now, suddenly, she's dealing with thugs, break ins, and this guy in a trench coat with a funny accent and no sense of humor.
All Karla knows is that her friend is not a kidnapper. All George knows is that Karla Marquette may have the secret to life.
This is a hybrid dare. The plot is complicated enough that I need to revise what I've got so far in order to finish it - so I will be re-typing the whole thing from start to finish as I write the new material. Therefore the daily goal is high.
