Two women “of a certain age” have driven to the Town of Speedway, Indiana (home to the Indianapolis 500), because one of them has an uncle who hasn’t responded to her phone calls in several days.

Her friend Francine McNamara, the more level-headed of the two, tries to dissuade her, but Charlotte can be very hard-headed. And #1 on Charlotte’s bucket list is to solve a murder mystery.
