In Jennifer Colt's debut novel -- a darkly comedic mystery that is equal parts Janet Evanovich and Jackie Collins -- Kerry and Terry McAfee are gorgeous twin "private dickettes" trying to determine who is brutally killing off rich Beverly Hills widows.
At the behest of their great-aunt Reba ("the Canasta Queen of Beverly Hills"), the redheaded twins are hired by the fittingly named Lenore Richling, one of Reba's affluent socialite friends, to help track down Richling's young gold-digging husband, Mario, who has allegedly absconded with some of Richling's jewels and pawned them for $10,000. All Kerry and Terry have to do is find Mario, retrieve the money, and return the wad to Richling, who is recuperating from yet another face-lift at a posh Beverly Hills hotel. So, astride Terry's hot-pink Harley, the vivacious twins investigate -- and drive headlong into a massive conspiracy that includes a drug-addicted plastic surgeon, Russian gangsters, botoxed and blackmailed widows, a psycho cop with a mullet and a pet wolf, an enigmatic "robotic blonde cyborg" beauty consultant, a Pomeranian rat dog named Paquito -- and an ever-increasing body count. But as the twins begin to unravel the mystery, they find themselves next on the killer's to-do list…
Colt keeps the pacing fast and furious, as the twins speed from one crime scene to another; and the laughs keep coming as the sisters -- one conventional and the other wild -- bumble their way to the truth. Paul Goat Allen
