Mother Shadow: An LA Murder Mystery
Praise for Melodie Johnson Howe’s City of Mirrors:
“City of Mirrors is deftly written and smart. On top of that, it is entertaining as hell.”–Michael Connelly
“A fine crime novel with an engagingly cynical edge”–Simon Brett
When the wealthy Ellie Kenilworth commits suicide and a crucial part of his will goes missing, his temporary employee Maggie Hill finds herself being circled by his greedy surviving kin who are out for their slice of the pie by any means necessary. Maggie turns to Claire Conrad, an eccentric but resolute private detective, and together they fight to protect the last wishes of a dying old man.
Howe has created a wonderful, highly entertaining (and just a touch bizarre) pair of female sleuths.
