Ting-A-Ling is the Seventh mystery in the highly entertaining Dev Haskell Private Investigator mystery series.
In Hitchcockian fashion, the telephone rings at two in the morning. PI Dev Haskell answers, half-asleep, to a giggling woman named Danielle. It seems she’s found his phone number on a bathroom stall. She’s called Dev “for a good time,” but what she really wants is for him to deliver a simple message to her former business partner.
It’s all fun and games (not to mention funny) til someone goes missing. Next thing he knows, our fair but bumbling hero can’t find his client or her business partner, which turns out to be the least of his problems when he finds himself on the hook for murder, and suddenly haunted by a multitude of childhood secrets.
In a bizarre but compelling mixture of suspense, family drama, and offbeat comedy, Dev once again messily balances both sides of the law in a wacky adventure that will keep you on your toes while laughing out loud.
