Overview

Second in the award-winning Bo Bradley mystery series, STRAWGIRL throws child abuse investigator Bo into the curious world of cults, and pits her against the most loathsome of antagonists.

The rape/murder of a little girl is exploited by a sensation-seeking psychologist, arousing the public to a frenzy of mindless rage toward “Satanists” while Bo struggles to protect the murdered child’s sister and save an unjustly accused man from prison. 

Complicating everything is an attractive suitor, Cajun pediatrician Andrew LaMarche, whose proposal in a canoe results in watery disaster.  Add new friends Rombo Perry, an ex-boxer, and partner Martin St.John, whose wheat rolls are to die for, plus an ACLU lawyer sleeping on her couch, and Bo sudenly has an entourage!

But both the system for which she works and the real killer are out to get Bo, in a complex case that threatens her with professional ruin… and death.

“A strikingly unconventional sleuth… (Padgett) knows how to tell a story with passion and purpose.”   New York Times Book Review

    TIME WELL SPENT

    Strawgirl is another fine novel by Abigail Padgett minus a few points for story improbability. A three-year-old rape victim suffering mortal wounds would not have kept quiet. Three-year-olds don't possess that level of cognitive reasoning to be silenced by a threat of bodily harm to their mother. And detective Reinert's comment about arresting a guy who kept his dead sister's body locked in a closet for four years so he could collect her social security checks is despicable, but not likely. The overwhelming smell of decaying flesh would have attracted the neighbor's attention as well as every dog and rat for miles. Yet Strawgirl is worth the read. There's a wealth of information regarding mental health told very cleverly throughout its pages. Padgett never allows her dark topics drag the reader into depression nor does she preach. The story is entertaining, informative and the reader walks away a better person for it.
