I have been crushed into suitcases and backpacks. I've been snowed on and sleeted on and windblown. I've climbed to heights no self-respecting coat should ever have to endure. I've ridden on subways, trains, and trolleys, flown in planes, and ridden in derelict taxis. I've bumped along on a donkey. I have felt like I was flying in the back of a pickup truck tearing across desert flats and dunes. I've waded into rivers and oceans and across streams on slippery rocks. I have even traveled on a Navy warship clear across the Pacific Ocean and helped steer it for just a little while. I've petted elephants in the wild and watched a cheetah hunt his weekly meal. I've climbed towers into what seemed to be the very clouds and crossed a bridge over a waterfall so tall and wide I couldn't see the end or the bottom of it. And more! It's been a lot for a coat to do! Join me in my travels!
Helen Patterson and her fellow Tricycle Girls, Maggie Taylor and LeeAnne Warner, embark on a week-long excursion to Stone Mountain, Georgia with other members of Golden Harvest, where they all reside. Along the way they encounter unwanted guests, unsavory characters, murder, and mayhem. Helen and the girls have one week to catch the killer. The list of suspects is long, and Helen is right at the top because of her 60-year history with the deceased. They must solve the crime because all agree Helen would not look good in horizontal stripes.
