Murder, Mayhem & Men on Pause
A bankrupt husband. A dead body. A cop more sexy than the legal limit.
Just when Ellie Cummins is free to shed her corporate wife image, she finds the body of a young woman in an apartment she's been hired to re-design. Her fledgling business depends on this contract, so she tries to ignore the long-buried grief the trauma exposes.
When Ellie learns her daughter has a personal connection to the victim, and the police have no leads, she and friends Cass and Kandy decide to investigate the murder. But Brisbane's alleyways are dark and their detective skills dubious, so how far will they go for justice?
Kandy once lived a hard life on the streets, but will uncovering her husband's secret life destroy all she's achieved since then?
Is solid, dependable Cass as content with her life as she seems?
And is the cop who responded to their call more interested in Ellie than the investigation?
For the three friends, it's a time of change and self-discovery. And the realisation that life, like love, doesn't play fair in Sandy Curtis' Murder, Mayhem & Men on Pause.
