Big truck, big dog, big hair, and a bad attitude
Roxy Abruzzo is the
loud-mouthed, sexy, independent-minded niece of a Pittsburgh Mafia boss
trying to go (mostly) straight. She’d like to stay completely out of her
uncle Carmine’s shady business dealings, though he’s trying to reel her
in. She’d like to concentrate on the architectural salvage business she
runs mostly on the up-and-up for a tidy profit. She’d like to keep her
rebellious teenage daughter on the straight and narrow. But Roxy knows
where all the good intentions in the world usually lead, and when she
can’t help herself from tucking away an ancient Greek statue that’s not
really hers, she pays for it by getting caught up in the chaos
surrounding the sordid murder of the statue’s former owner, the heir to a
billion-dollar Pittsburgh steel fortune.
Of course, Roxy has plenty of help getting in and out of trouble,
including her sidekick, “Nooch” Santonucci, who is too dumb to say no to
whatever Roxy wants to do and strong enough to do it; her widowed aunt
Loretta, a lawyer whose big hair and short skirts are as big a help to
her in court as her brains; and Patrick Flynn, ex-marine, professional
chef, and former high school flame, fresh from Afghanistan to torture
Roxy, just like old times.
With her wicked sense of humor and a devilishly clever new series
premise, the author of the beloved Blackbird Sisters mysteries has
crafted another mystery destined to be a bestseller. Download and start listening now!
