Book Review

Genre: Mystery/Suspense/Thriller, Mystery, Amateur Sleuth

RT Rating

Eccentric characters with killer wits populate this mystery. Reluctant heiress Andy Kendrick is spunky and intrepid as she looks into her boyfriend's disappearance -- and tries to get a handle on her socialite mother's romance with a former government agent. McBride's Debutante Dropout series can tally up another amusing tale as Russian mob bosses mingle with topless waitresses.

Good-guy defense
attorney Brian Malone didn't want
to spend an evening at one of
Dallas' tawdry gentlemen's clubs,
but what can a guy do when he
throws his best buddy a bachelor party? But when Brian goes missing, the drunken groom tells Andy her
beau disappeared through the back door with the hot blonde stripper
who turned up dead in the trunk
of Brian's car.

Andy's a stand-by-your-man woman, and she vows to prove that Brian's disappearance means he's in big trouble before the Dallas police use him as a fall guy for murder. Her investigation leads her to the type of seedy and dangerous characters that would horrify her society maven mother, Cissy, but when the chips are down, she races to Andy's side. (AVON, Jan., 352 pp., $6.99)
