Publisher's Summary

"For a moment, our eyes met; his were frightened, seeking help. Was it my imagination gone wild? No. After all those years of teaching elementary school, I knew this child was afraid."
After a chance encounter on the subway, Miss Augusta Weidenmaier, a retired schoolteacher living in New York's Greenwich Village, is determined to help the police in the search for missing nine-year-old child actor Kevin Corcoran. Never mind that she has no training in law enforcement - she spent decades teaching. She knows when someone is lying.
Once set upon a course of action, the indomitable Miss Weidenmaier cannot be swayed - or intimidated. Facing down megalomaniacal business executives, stuck-up celebrities, pushy stage mothers and a rabble-rousing talk show host, Miss Weidenmaier will stop at nothing - not even the disapproval of one Lieutenant Brown of the NYPD, who does not take kindly to amateur sleuthing - to bring young Kevin home.

This book started out very well but eventually the retired teacher was just too unaware of herself. The mother is a hysteric needing days and days of hospitalization and tranqs and male help. The narrator seems to have only one voice. NYC cops should have a NYC accent as should several of the other characters in the book. I did not finish listening to this one as it became too contrived.
