When Florence Kensington gives up her coveted spot at ReVisions Retirement Residence to newcomers Roy and Linh Jackson, she unknowingly awakens Kira Callaghan’s Vietnam memories—and her PTSD. However, Kira’s “inner retired journalist” has no choice but to investigate when Florence is found dead.
With help from the Flower Pots and her boyfriend Charles, Kira travels from Chit Creek to Burlington, Vermont, and exposes the secrets surrounding an Operation Bablylift plane crash from forty years ago. Discouraged by the lack of progress on the case, she returns to Triple R with her team of aging acolytes.
Little do they know that a killer has followed them home…
