AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'She stared into the speckled mirror, wondering how she had come to this. How could she, Holly Love, apple of her parents' eye, competent manipulator of invoices in Gorgon Office Supplies, have ended up alone and starving in a dead man's flat?

'How indeed? Most reluctant heroines would throw in the towel at this point. But Holly Love is made of sterner stuff. She's sworn to track down the cheating swine who ripped her life apart, and make him pay. But as she tries to keep her head in the face of a bizarre mystery, a gloomy old house, a hearse-driving Elvis impersonator and a gang of vengeful thugs - not to mention a garrulous and possibly possessed parrot - Holly is forced to come to terms with a great truth. However bad things seem, they can always get worse.' (From the publisher's website.)

Notes

  • Dedication: Heartfelt thanks to my daughter Kate Rowe for her joyful and useful research on everything from snake keepers to psychic counsellors, to my good friends Ruth and Steve Moline for their generous encouragement, and to my dear, witty husband, Bob Ryan, for laughing as he listened to every chapter as it was written, and for providing the title that began it all.
