ASSAULT WITH A DEADLY GLUE GUN
A promising start to a new series. Crafts editor Anastasia Pollack is tossed into chaos when her husband dies, leaving her with a mountain of gambling debt. With great style and humor, Anastasia tackles her problems and the mystery of a dead coworker. With a wacky, likable cast, this mystery starts out strong, meanders slightly in the middle, but ends well with a car chase and a ruthless villain.
Anastasia Pollack is not enjoying life at the moment. With a dead husband, piles of debt, a ruthless loan shark, two teenage sons and a combative mother-in-law, she has all that she can handle. Unfortunately, when a prima donna fashion editor is found suffocated by glue at Anastasia’s desk at American Woman magazine, she has yet another problem to solve. Although the dead woman had many enemies, solving her murder proves to be a difficult task, and when an up-and-coming fashion designer is murdered as well, Anastasia must find the common link between the two and catch a ruthless killer before the glue dries for good.
