Death of A Dustbunny

A Stella the Stargazer Mystery

Book - 1998
Rate this:
Stella was sitting in her office at the Denver Daily Orion when she got that taste in her mouth, the one that let her know that something was very wrong. Of course, she'd had a hint of a problem: Elena Ruiz was late. In view of the whispered phone call last night, the one in which Elena had said that it was muy importante that they meet, Stella's concern mounted with each blast of the chinook wind rattling her office windows. When she called Dustbunnies, the housekeeping and nanny service the young Latina worked for, worry took a turn for the worse: They claimed Elena left a note saying that she had to go away for a few days. The problem was that Stella knew Elena could neither read nor write in English. Stella allows herself to get talked into replacing Elena in caring for Steven Holman, a little boy with an unshakable belief in vampires ... and a vivid memory of seeing Elena in the backyard, and of seeing something else... Playing nanny and trying to get information from a close-mouthed and very protective Mexican community where fear of the INS is even stronger than public concern for a missing woman, Stella steps into a world colder - and far more dangerous - than a Denver March in the grip of winter.
