Gwen Freeman debuts one of the funniest, original, mysteries in recent years with the uniquely titled Murder¿ Suicide¿Whatever¿ Fifi Cutter is a mixed raced, recently unemployed, twenty-something who doesn¿t speak to any of her family members. This is mainly because the house she inherited from her beloved and deceased father was gutted of its furniture by her calculating social climbing mother, her policeman half-brother accuses her of stealing his share of the inheritance, and her other mooching half-brother has just shown up on her doorstep asking for shelter and help investigating the murder of their uncle, Ted Hefferman. The fact that Uncle Ted wasn¿t really their uncle and that they aren¿t investigators doesn¿t bother Bosco a bit, and his ever-present charm and Fifi¿s need for an income has them impersonating grief counselors as they navigate through the extremely murky relationships of the Obermeyer & Schlefly insurance firm. While Bosco cages free meals and tries to figure out a way to get a television, Fifi has her Truck L¿Orange attacked by homeless people, her home is broken into, and someone leaves her a dismembered rat. Fifi proves to be a vastly entertaining and likable character despite the fact that she is virtually friendless and estranged from her family. Freeman writes with a breezy style that carries the reader along with a fast-moving plot that leads to an unpredictable, yet completely appropriate, ending. Fifi¿s amusingly frank assessment of herself 'overly frizzy hair that protects her from breaking glass, a big nose, curveless body' hides a vulnerability that peeks out despite her best attempts to hide it. Fans of Janet Evanovich will appreciate Freeman¿s light and fun style. Here¿s to hoping that the Fifi Cutter Mystery becomes a long running series the sequel soon to follow.
