Summary
Farberville Arkansas bookstore owner Claire Malloy solves the murder of an eccentric artists' estranged wife. Zeno Gorgias has his neighbors up in arms over his loud, X-rated performance art. During a crowded "performance" a woman is hit by a motorcycle, Zeno's house burns to the ground, and his wife is found dead in a coffin. Angering her policeman boyfriend, Claire meddles with suspects (hiding and losing them, as well as searching their houses). Claire solves the murder while surviving her teen-aged daughter Caron's sarcastic remarks and avoiding her boyfriends attempts at commitment. Readers may also enjoy the mysteries of Carolyn Hart (Annie and Max Darling), Gillian Roberts, Nancy Pickard, and Dorothy Cannell. (Description by: Sue O'Brien) --
