The Butcher of Beverly Hills: A Screwball Mystery Featuring Kerry and Terry McAfeeby Jennifer Colt
Meet Kerry and Terry McAfeeidentical twin sisters who have nothing in common, save their red hair and California-girl looks. Kerry's the good girla straight-A student who, after high school, ends up at UCLA. Terry's the bad girla nose-candy aficionado who, after high school, ends up in the slammer. Kerry's a hopeless romantic about boys; Terry's a hopeless flirt around girls. But Kerry and Terry team up for The Butcher of Beverly Hillstheir first-ever case as private dickettes who keep L.A. safe with the help of their sidekicks: a Pomeranian named Paquito and a Pug named Muffy.
When wealthy socialite Lenore Richling's twentysomething gold-digging boy toy of a husband absconds with ten thousand dollars' worth of her jewelry, she does what anyone in her position would do: she checks herself in for a plastic surgery shopping spree, then calls the McAfee twins for help. While Lenore recuperates from her face-lift in the luxury of a reclusive hotel, the gals hop on their customized hot-pink Harley-Davidson and begin investigating a bevy of suspicious characters, including Barbie, a bimbo beauty consultant with buns of steel; Hattrick, a painkiller-pushing plastic surgeon; and Binion, a silver-haired, snake-tongued Hollywood attorney. Before they know it, the twins are wading in dead husbands, purloined cash, crotchless panties, mystery pills, and a body count high enough to make even tough cookies like them a little squeamishalong with more than a little romantic intrigue.
Brilliantly poised to straddle the "chick lit" and mystery markets, The Butcher of Beverly Hills marks the debut of a hot new three-book series starring theunforgettable McAfee girls. Written with a razor-sharp wit that brilliantly spoofs L.A.'s most eccentric subcultures and personalities, Butcher is fun, fast-paced, and hilariously original, with enough plot twists and hijinks to keep everyoneincluding the twinsguessing until the very end.
