Novelist Anne George injects murder, mayhem, and laughs into her popular mysteries. Nominated for an Agatha Award, this hilarious tale of two "60 something" sisters reveals the deadly consequences of a hasty real estate purchase. Retired Alabama school teacher Patricia Anne thinks her older sister, flamboyant Mary Alice, has lost her cotton-pickin' mind. On a whim, Mary Alice bought the Skoot 'n' Boot, the local country western night spot where she and her boyfriend hang out. Mary Alice insists it will be easy to run the club-until the previous owner is found executed, gangland style, in the club's wishing well. Suddenly the sheriff is demanding answers, and a killer with unfinished business is sending messages even optimistic Mary Alice can't ignore. With her dramatic sense of timing, narrator Ruth Ann Phimister brings out both the wise-cracking fun and the nailbiting suspense.

"A pair of "60-something" sisters--a retired teacher and an owner of a country-western night spot--learn that real estate deals can lead to a gangland execution in this mystery, filled with mayhem and laughs.Without being a parody, Ruth Ann Phimister's voice is filled with Southern warmth, inflection, and charm, nicely pitched to her 60-something narrator. She skillfully changes tempo to fit the moment and seems particularly adept at using her voice to convey the emotions of her narrator. P.B.J. (c) AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine"
