Big truck, big dog, big hair. Bad attitude.

Roxy Abruzzo, bestseller Nancy Martin's latest creation, is a 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, heir to a billion-dollar Pittsburgh steel fortune.

Of course, she has plenty of help getting in and out of trouble, including her sidekick "Nooch" Santonucci, 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, author of the beloved Blackbird Sisters mysteries Nancy Martin has crafted another mystery destined to be a besteller.

Funny, multiple plot lines, pretty well written. I'll look for more by Martin.

A humorous light read. (Why would someone give it one star when they haven't even read the book?)

I loved it! Funny and brassy book, not to mention the main character. It is definitely on my list.

A new series by this author. Didn't sound interesting enough to begin reading.

Roxy Abruzzo is the main character in this book and she is different. She drives a truck, owns a big dog, and has a friend she tries to keep out of trouble. It is one of the best books I've read.
