A NovelAudiobook CD - 2011
Settling into ranch life outside Reno, Nevada, with her gregarious great-aunt Jeep Reed and Jeep's German Shepherd, King, former Wall Street trader Mags and her dachshund Baxter witness the cutthroat world of investment banking here in the remote Silver State. The foreclosure crisis has taken a huge bite out of the local real estate market, where rows of homes sit unsold and forsaken- but not empty. A group of squatters, including desperate single mothers with children, are living under the radar in the houses on Reno's Yolanda Street, without water or electricity. Big-hearted real estate broker Babs Gallagher enlists Jeep and Mags to start a community outreach program, but that means going up against uncaring utility companies, corrupt officials, ruthless politicians- and a merciless murderer. When a former banker is found brutally slain in one of the abandoned homes, the notion of "cutthroat business practices" takes on a whole new meaning.
