The Domestic Equalizers take on Manhattan in Cash's latest big hair blitz. Edwina Perkins-Martin and Debbie Sue Overstreet run a beauty salon and the only PI agency in Salt Lick, Tex. The invitation to speak at the annual conference of the NAPI (National Association of Private Investigators) comes as a surprise, but Edwina and Debbie Sue accept since the NAPI's going to pop for the expenses and pony up an honorarium. Meanwhile in Dime Box, Tex., Celina Phillips dreams of becoming a PI and also decides to attend. The three meet and the rest is cornpone kismet when a crime occurs right next to their hotel room, and Celina falls for a sexy NYPD detective. Cash (pseudonym for a sister writing team) crams her latest caper with such wackiness that the contrived plot can almost be excused, but Edwina and Debbie Sue are often so silly that they're downright annoying.
