Like Nick and Nora Charles from "The Thin Man" series, Dick and Dora Zimmerman from, "The Senior Sleuths," solve crimes, especially murder such as when a dead body is found in an icebox with a note that says, "contents rotten."
Still in their early sixties, the Zimmerman's not only have the time—but the money, the smarts and the "chutzpa"—to get involved even when they are warned by police and criminals to stay away. Moreover, other condo residents where they live in Manhattan and Vegas seek Dick and Dora's help whenever they suspect any foul play!
They have great cohorts like Zero the Bookie, Frankie Socks and even 89-year old Bertie Gladstone who helps them catch the murders. Dick and Dora often mix wit and humor when facing danger...and solving murders.

DYING TO BE BEAUTIFUL is about the billion-dollar world of beauty, a mystery series that take place in "The Hamptons," where the murdered and suspected murderers are often arrogant and obnoxious with a sense of entitlement.

These cases lead Jenna to philosophical perspectives, danger, romance (thanks to her dog, Watson) as well as secondary stories of human behavior and life in The Hamptons. Intriguing and fascinating stories of bad behavior, they recount mistakes and misdirection, because in the billion-dollar world of beauty there are those who are literally... dying to be beautiful!
This series is about much more than murders and mysteries. DYING TO BE BEAUTIFUL explores the beauty or lack of it in humanity. It's about insights into human behaviors, people's life choices and the impact of their choices on themselves and others, plus how others' choices impact them. The books also touches on timely issues such as the homeless, vets with PTSD and threats to the environment.
