Minneapolis restaurateur/sleuth Jane Lawless solves the murders of two directors of a prestigious women's club in this new mystery by the author of Stage Fright.

A 1992 Lambda nominee for Best Lesbian Mystery.

Library Journal description:

Minneapolis restaurant owner and part-time sleuth Jane Lawless (Hallowed Murder) interrupts her romance with councilwoman Dorrie in order to find a ledger and jewels stolen after the "accidental" death of the director of a charitable foundation.

Lawless grills suspects for information, judges their reactions, and intuits their honesty. She then reviews her gleanings with her best friend, Cordelia, a witty and flamboyant theater person.

An old mansion used as a woman's club provides the focal point for much of the action, while subplots involve ex-lovers, family secrets, and wrongful accusations.

Strong characters, setting, and investigation: a great choice.
