"Anne George's sixth in the Southern Sisters series finds Patricia Anne Hollowell, retired sexagenarian school teacher, and her much married older sister, Mary Alice, caught up in a chain of catastrophes that befall neighbors Mitzi and Arthur Pfizer. When Patricia Anne sees Arthur being cozy at the Hunan Hut with a strange woman, she can't believe her eyes. When the woman dies suddenly, Arthur is arrested for her murder. After someone tries to burn down the Pfizers's house, a frantic Mitzi comes to her for help. Ruth Ann Phimister gives a solid performance. Her finesse enhances the zany sisters' escapade in sleuthing and gives George's subtle irony and wry humor all they deserve. S.J.H. (c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine"
