Edgar's Down Home Grill is flourishing, but the reprehensible owner, Edgar Walker, is finito. Jennifer Marsh finds his body -- and catches her dear friend Emmie, Edgar's former wife, nearby ... gripping a bloody knife. Jennifer knows that Emmie could never kill anyone. Edgar's current wife, however, with her lush body and scheming brain, fits the bill. But unless Jennifer and her writers' critique group can figure out who's been plotting murder, Emmie's neck will be in the noose ... and reluctant witness for the prosecution Jennifer will be the one to tighten it!
One warm Atlanta night, Jennifer Marsh�part-time caterer and unpublished mystery writer comforted by her writing group�comes upon her dazed friend Emma Walker holding a bloody knife as her ex-husband, Edgar, floats facedown in their swimming pool. Worse, it turns out that Emma holds the controlling interest in the family business, a popular local restaurant chain called Edgar's Down Home Grill. Jennifer knows in her heart Emma couldn't have killed her husband, but how can she prove it? Can the real murderer be Lisa, Edgar's young second wife; Roy, who makes the secret steak sauce; or a glamorously mysterious management consultant? Jennifer enlists the help of the women in her writing group and uses her fictional detective, Maxie, to test her theories. With this eccentric gang, Fitzwater (Dying to Get Published) once again offers an entertaining read. (Feb.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved
