Ms Martin, you made a detour along the way! This lady really knows her Pittsburgh and the unique personalities of some of the inhabitants. Roxy is a far cry and a perfect diversion from "the sisters." Much gritier, sexier, and flawed but you will like her. I guessed the end but I'm quite good at it and I still didn't want to stop reading. Purchased at the Mystery Bookstore in Oakmont Pennsylvania and it is a signed copy. Ms Martin lives and works in Pittsburgh and even though I have moved South, she hit my Pittsburgh roots with perfect accuracy!
