In McKevett's entertaining 13th Savannah Reid mystery (after 2007's Fat Free and Fatal), the California PI agrees to help her old San Carmelita police partner, overworked Det. Sgt. Dirk Coulter, find 18-year-old Daisy O'Neil because she's reminded of a missing girl the pair were unable to find alive nearly 20 years earlier. Daisy's terrified mother suspects Daisy's "friends" known as "the Skeleton Key Three" may be involved. Rail-thin tabloid queen Tiffy Dante, along with Bunny Greenaway and Kiki Wallace, are famous for their glam looks, wealth and party-on lifestyle. They view Daisy as a fat hanger-on and claim to know nothing. As Tiffy preps her family estate for a Halloween party, Tiffy's dad turns up in a prop coffin with a stake through his heart. Is there a connection between his murder and Daisy's disappearance? When Savannah's Granny Reid, who's visiting from Georgia, decides to lend a hand in the investigation, things really start popping. McKevett continues to deliver witty crime solving that's both tart and sweet. (May)Copyright © Reed Business Information, a division of Reed Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.
