And then there is a murder. Right in the apartment building, as fate would have it. And everything and everyone suddenly come into focus. The reader realizes there are probably 20 red herrings running around, and one of them is the murderer.
Alene has been divorced for a while and would love to meet someone interesting. Enter detective Frank Shaw. He gets her attention, but will she get his? What about the memorial for the deceased? And who’s doing what? Alene finds herself babbling every time she sees Frank. Her mouth moves way faster than her brain sometimes, but she’s no idiot and she’s going to find a killer. Just wait and see.
In this fun and fast-paced debut novel, G.P. Gottlieb breathes new life into the traditional cozy mystery. Plus there’s the food–mouthwatering morsels coming at the reader from every direction. You’ll want to read Battered, and look forward to more from this new author!
