this is a samantha adams mystery.. she catches the dark, joyous, eccentricity of the american south.. a very good series.. this is number 5 in the series
A rolllicking, rabelaisina saga, southern style.
This romp through the world of barbecue cookoffs is classic Shankman. Muliple characters (each well developed and as idiosyncratic as Sam Adams' American Weird book) come together in Tupelo, Mississipi for 'cue, money, revenge, and Elvis impersonators. Lots of fun!
n recent years, Mary DiNunzio has become a big-time business-getter at Rosato & Associates, but the last person she expects to walk into her office one morning is super sexy Trish Gambone, her high school rival. â As it turns out, Trish's life has taken a horrifying turn. She's terrified of her boyfriend, who's an abusive drug dealer for the South Philly mob. There's only one problemâMary remembers the guy from high school, too. Unbeknownst to Trish, Mary had a major crush on him.
Then Trish vanishes, a dead body turns up in an alley, and Mary is plunged into a nightmare. She goes on a one-woman crusade to unmask the killer, and on the way finds new love in a very unexpected place.
