Full title is THE CASE OF THE FRAGMENTED WOMAN and the author listed on the book is Cleo Jones. Hmmmmm.

From the jacket blurb:

When the bodiless head of voluptuous soap opera siren Hermoine Leanders is broadcast live on a local game show, bored housewives all over San Francisco get quite a jolt.

Especially Mary Sable, who then finds Hermoine's foot set prettily in aspic in her best friend's refrigerator.

As parts of Hermoine appear around town, Mary tries to find the killer and save her friend from a murder charge. But juggling three children, unwanted houseguests and a sexy cop isn't easy, especially when her own off-the-wall investigation leads her to a millionaire's kinky basement...and into more trouble than even a bored housewife ever needed.

Another well-done book by Stuart Woods even though the plot seems a bit contrived at times.

Mons Graupius: An Historical Novel of the Cruithne Before They Were Called Picts
Review Date: 1/23/2006
Helpful Score: 1


A self-published novel of Roman Britain. Beginning in A.D.83, when Roman general Agricola went into the Caledonian Highlands to defeat the Cruithne at Mons Graupius, it concludes some two decades later.

The story is entertaining, the writing quite seriously flawed.

Greg Iles is phenomenal. Plus, if you are a Mississippian, the background material is \"spot on.\"
