Ink, Red, Dead
The phrase “hostess with the mostest” takes on a whole new meaning when crafty amateur sleuth Kiki Lowenstein finds herself stuck in the middle of a hoarder’s crime scene in the third installment of the Joanna Slan’s cozy mystery series. But proceed with caution: this one’s as littered with surprises as it is clutter. Scrapbook maven Kiki happens to be a card-carrying Episcopalian—but she respects the power of intuition. So when she has a “bad feeling” en route to Marla Lever’s house for a scrapbooking crop, she heeds her instincts. Something is definitely very wrong. Marla’s nowhere to be seen, although her car’s in the garage—buried under a heap of garbage and lawn furniture. Tip of the iceberg, sadly. Because the potential horror of scrapbooking in a hoarder’s paradise pales in comparison to the body the cops find in Marla’s freezer.
