Now that I am a suburban dweller, I especially love mysteries that take place in these lovely safe havens, especially if they are funny and THE COLD HARD FAX is a hoot. Leslie O'Kane is particularly effective when she is skewering the gossipy atmosphere that goes with living on a cul-de-sac and she is even better when she takes on the world of the politically correct. I can't wait for more mysteries about cartoonist Molly Masters.

From the Inside Flap
Gardening is not usually considered a blood sport, but whenever cartoonist Molly Masters is out in the yard she must contend with the harassing comments of her neighbor, Helen Raleigh, who once owned Molly's house. Then, after a particularly unpleasant confrontation, Helen is shot dead on Molly's property--and a shocking secret is revealed.
When Molly shoves her trowel into the dirt of the murder investigation, she starts receiving some threatening faxes--and realizes that one determined killer could quiet her questions forever. . . .
