THE MERRY WIVES OF MAGGODY
It's anarchy in Arkansas! The crew in Maggody, Ark., is up to their usual antics when a charity golf tournament turns the women against the men. Laugh-out-loud moments and funny dialogue create a humorous and
catchy mystery, which concludes
nicely with Sheriff Arly Hanks confronting all the contestants and
exposing the killer.
When an obnoxious golf instructor from a neighboring town sinks the winning shot, the residents of Maggody are fuming mad. Later, when he's found clubbed to death inside the boat, Arly is in the precarious position of finding out who in Maggody was mad enough to swing the fatal club. (MINOTAUR, Jan., 352 pp., $24.99)
