Book Information

The following content was provided by the publisher.

Roxy Abruzzo has to be careful to stay one step ahead of trouble--especially now that a limited cash flow has her collecting debts for her uncle Carmine, one of the last old-time Mob bosses in Pittsburgh. With her daughter's college tuition to pay, Roxy can almost convince herself that the jobs aren't illegal.
But when Carmine's consigliere offers Roxy a contract to kidnap someone, that's one line she won't cross. Trouble is that when the kidnapping victim turns up murdered, Roxy's number one on the police hit parade. To protect herself, she investigates and soon learns the victim had a big secret--or two.
Add a rock singer, a pesky paleontologist, and a sexy chef with a taste for whatever Roxy dishes up, and you've got a caper full of laugh-out-loud mayhem. Peppered with one-liners, "Sticky Fingers"--the second Roxy Abruzzo mystery--is even tastier than the first.

Reviews

Review by Library Journal (2011-02-01)

Her demo and salvage business suffering in the economic downturn, Roxy Abruzzo (Foxy Roxy) has done a few other jobs, like collecting overdue gambling losses for her Uncle Carmine, an imprisoned mob boss. When he asks her to kidnap a woman, Roxy refuses but finds herself the number one suspect when the woman is murdered. Martin, author of the wacky "Blackbird Sisters" series, has come up with another eccentric crew running wild, this time in Pittsburgh. Roxy, who is trying to set a good example for her teenage daughter, has given up her promiscuous ways but can't seem to she'd her tendency to get into trouble.

Verdict: Martin is a good choice for those who have read all of Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum series and want to try something new. [Library marketing; regional author tour.]
