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.

Quotes & Awards

  • “In this stellar first in a new series, Martin introduces Roxy Abruzzo…a tough girl like Evanovich’s Stephanie Plum, if with an edgier vibe.”

    Publishers Weekly (starred review)

  • “White gives distinctive vocal characterizations to the well-drawn characters…Her narration captures the irony and wit of the zany characters and their sometimes-wicked repartee.”


  • “A clever and naughty mystery.”

    Library Journal

  • “Nancy’s new series puts Pittsburgh on the mystery map, right between Laura Lippmann’s Baltimore and Robert B. Parker’s Boston…I loved it.”

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Courtney | 2/11/2014

    " First off, I have to complain about the grammar mistakes and dropped punctuation in this book. I don't think anyone read the finished product and just let spell check do it for them. Now that my mini-rant is over, I can say that I liked this novel. I liked that Roxy was a tough cookie. The storyline dragged in a few places, but overall it was good. It definitely was different from the Blackbird Sisters. I think I will give the next Roxy Abruzzo novel a try when it comes out. "

    " not bad but not as good as her Blackbird sisters mysteries. "

    " A humorous mystery. The heroine is quite independent and runs her own architectural salvage business with the help of one employee. She's related to a Pittsburg Mafia boss (uncle) who wants her in the "family business". On the grounds of a ruined estate, she finds an ancient Greek statue and rescues it. But, the family it belongs to want it back for their own reasons, not all of them compatible. Interesting details about the architectural salvage business. "

    " Despite mixed reviews, I really enjoyed this book and perhaps more than the Blackbird Sisters series. Being from outside of Philadelphia, I was first drawn to the Blackbird Sisters, but as I said, Roxy was a great character and the slight spin-off from the Abbruzzo family was a great idea. I am looking forward to hopefully the next book in this series. "
