A HOOT, A HOLLER...AND A HOMICIDE

No doubt about it, local gossips had finally gotten something right: a maniac was loose in Maggody, Arkansas (pop. 750). So Chief of Police Ariel "Arly" Hanks, a.k.a. the local girl who did not make good in New York City and came home to lick her wounds, is back in action. Someone sabotaged the grand opening of Jim Bob's SuperSaver Buy 4 Less with tainted tamale sauce and straight pins in the cupcakes. Now Arly's got 23 cases of food poisoning and a whole passel of suspects who want Jim Bob's store to go belly up, including her very own mother, Ruby Bee. What Arly doesn't have is an inkling of the other high crimes and misdemeanors about to be perpetrated in a Maggody gone bonkers: sex scandals, scams...and very sudden death.

"this may be one of the funniest mysteries written in a long time...It manages to tell a great tale of death and revenge and keep it so bright and cheerful that it's hard to remember the premise of the tale: murder." --Ocala Star-Banner

Joan Hess' Maggody series is the funniest laugh-your-butt-off series I've ever read - right next to the Dortmumder series by Westlake! Be prepared to have a good time!
