A king-sized case for a queen-sized sleuth. In the third Josephine Fuller mystery, Jo is working undercover at a women's skills center when she spots an old acquaintance. Jo last saw Teddy in Kathmandu when her photographer husband ran off with Teddy's mountain-climbing wife, leaving the spouses to commiserate. Now Teddy has a new problem-his latest girlfriend is missing. Jo agrees to track her down, and the trail leads straight to his estranged wife, murdered with a climbing axe. Jo suddenly finds herself a major suspect in the death of the woman who broke up her marriage. Add to that Jo's already muddled love life, an apartment filled with haunting memories, and suspects ranging from the victim's lesbian vegetarian sister to her fading film star mother, her politician stepfather and her mooching father, and Jo's got her hands full.

Jo Fuller is working underground for her wealthy philanthropist boss Mrs. Madrone at a job skill center in Bremeton, Washington. However, her efforts to see if the center is worthy of financial support are interrupted when Teddy Etheridge enters the center. The last time Teddy and Jo saw one another was in Kathmandu when their spouses found love in one anther¿s arms. Teddy pleads with Jo to help him find his missing love Lucille Meeker, a full-bodied woman like Jo. Jo learns that Lucille caused problems for the center by pretending to be a client while stealing a computer from Fransesca who remains Teddy¿s estranged wife. Jo goes to visit Fransesca only to find someone murdered the woman. Jo¿s former husband Griffin Fuller is the prime suspect as he has just broken off with Fransesca. Perhaps it is for old time's sake but Jo decides to investigate the crime because she knows that Griffin is a sleaze but not a killer. The third ¿large¿ amateur sleuth tale is an entertaining story starring a larger than life heroine. The who-done-it is fun though the killer seems obvious (think motive). Jo remains a fresh character, but the references to her size and that of Lucy¿s seem overdone. Still Lynn Murray writes tales that make the Northwest sing and her latest AT LARGE will do that and more for the audience. Harriet Klausner
