Accessories to Die For
Later in the day, Juanita stops into Irene's Closet, the elite resale shop Irene owns to thank her. Juanita's son Danny, a talented musician, is still missing and she has a bad feeling about him. She doesn't believe the police are really looking for him because of his previous drug connection. Juanita does believe his spirit has not gone to the ancestors because the local tribal medicine man Tony did a ceremony saying he was with the Frenchman. This puzzles Irene too.
In spite of Juanita's efforts to coax Danny out of the drug culture, he seems to have fallen in with some very undesirable people. Irene fears for Danny as well as her shop
Later that evening she sees Danny, stoned, and being lead away by a friend. She wants to let Juanita know he is alive, but has no way to reach her. The next morning the body of the director of a Paris arts auction house is found on land belonging to the Kewa tribe. Irene wonders what Juanita could have done. When she is arrested the next day, Irene hates to think the worst.
Along with her irascible mother Adelle and P.J. Bailey, Santa Fe's most high profile criminal lawyer, they try find the killer, locate Danny and retrieve the sacred necklace.
