Detective Vinder of the Durham Police Department is initially confronted with the abduction of a woman who works
on a food truck, parked in the Carolina Arbors neighborhood. All indications are that one of her boyfriends has committed the crime,
but who are they? A white Mercedes has been seen near the truck, indicating perhaps another suspect.
Then a body is found and Vinder, with the help of Officer Ramón Acosta, follows his ABC rule: Assume Nothing,
Believe Nobody and Check Everything. In the end, Vinder turns to the Thursday Afternoon Sleuths Book Club members to help analyze his timeline.
