Book Summary

Media Reviews

Starred Review: Sharper than a stiletto heel, funnier than a bad dye job and full of fuchsia herrings.' - PW
"'It's common in the mystery genre for sleuth to outweigh story or vice versa. Not here. Readers, especially those who have followed Bailey through the three previous books, are every bit as interested in her welfare (and personal life) as they are in finding out who killed Mona and why. Bailey's back!' - Booklist.
