Overview

Finding a corpse in the trunk of your cab is a rotten way to start the day. For Bo Forrester, things go straight downhill from there. The cops are asking a hell of a lot of questions. The murder weapon turns up too close for comfort. And the attractive woman giving him the eye turns out to be Trudy Hauser, a cute-but-crazy deputy dead set on arresting him for murder.

Bo returned to Rhodes, an upstate New York college town, hoping to reconcile with his parents, gentle hippies who couldn’t accept his decision to join the Army at eighteen. Twenty years later, the commune where he grew up is a subdivision and his parents are long gone. Pondering his next move, Bo takes a job driving a cab. And he has no clue how the bullet-riddled body of art philanthropist Fred Davies ended up in the trunk.

Now, he can’t turn around without bumping into Trudy—it’s not her case, but that’s not slowing her down. The local cops, suspecting robbery as the motive, are right behind her. When Davies’s beautiful widow asks Bo for help, he can’t say no. Starting his own investigation, he plunges into a world of privilege, corruption, and high-stakes greed. A lot of people had reason to want Davies dead: a flirtatious art history professor with a taste for booze and men; her insanely jealous, ex-felon husband; the business partner with a secret addiction; and an avant-garde artist who proclaims that murder is the ultimate art form.

As the body count escalates, Bo must combine the skills he learned as a soldier with the values he grew up with on the commune to flush out a vicious murderer—if he manages to stay alive that long.

Editorial Reviews

Christine Zibas
Holzner has created an engaging mystery, with lovable characters and a plot that keeps on going, without making any of the mistakes that often befall storylines with so many twists and turns. Most of all, she has created a community that readers will be sad to leave and will look forward to returning to once again.

I was kept guessing a lot, and that is unusual in a mystery. I could relate to many of the characters, and just when I thought I had it figured all out, I could not have been more wrong. I hope the author writes another book because I would read it. I was pulled in at page one and could not put the book down.

I highly recommend Peace, Love and Murder whether you like great characters, a well-thought out plot or fast paced adventure. This is the book for you.
