The inception of the P.I.P.I was a harmless lark. But Elena Chesterton and her friends soon uncovered a link between the murders of six influential women in Oregon and international plots to unleash Smallpox virus and explode nuclear bombs in major American cities.
P.I.P.I. has a double meaning. The women of the Philippine Island-Products Incorporated—an ethnic catering business—have a few simple goals: making money to fund their cultural dance exhibitions, helping the poor, and spreading good will. But the same women assume roles as Philippine Island Private Investigators to track a sinister quarry through the Philippine archipelago and across the western United States.
