Death on a School Board (Molly Masters Series #5) by Leslie O'Kane

A ruthless battle is raging among the seven members of the Carlton school board. Should they choose to fund sports or the arts? There's not enough money for both. Sylvia Greene, the board's severely unbalanced president, is even threatening to expose the members' most private secrets if they don't vote her way.

But a sudden dose of poison takes care of Sylvia . . . permanently. The bad news is that Molly Master's dad, the board member who was Sylvia's first blackmail target, is now the prime suspect for her murder. Shocked and furious, Molly hits the warpath, determined to find the real killer. A deadly field trip tells her almost all she needs to know--except her own perilous fate. . .

This new-in-2017 edition contains Molly's cartoon illustrations!

After living in Colorado for numerous years, the Masters family return home to Carlton, New York. The matriarch Molly decides to stay at home to raise her two school aged children while running a business that sends any occasion cards via a fax. Though her business is not doing quite well, Molly is more concerned with school issues, especially since her father Charlie joined the school board.

The school budget is under siege as there is only enough funds to support either the arts curriculum or the sports program. Board president Sylvia Greene runs a vicious campaign using blackmail to force her peers to commit the money to the sports program. For instance, she threatens to reveal a nasty secret from Charlie¿s past if he fails to vote for her side. During the vote itself, someone poisons Sylvia with the main suspicion falling on Charlie. Unable to believe her father would kill someone, Molly places herself at risk to flush out a murderer.

Just like a FAX OF LIFE, most fans of the Molly Masters mysteries know that the novels are some of the best remedies for lifting weary individuals out of their slump. Leslie O¿Kane has a wicked sense of humor that especially surfaces when Molly designs a greeting card. THE SCHOOL BOARD MURDERS is a good juicy mystery filled with red herrings that turns the unexpected story line into an excellent hard to figure out puzzler. JUST THE FAX, this tale is a fun book that enhances an entertaining series that leaves readers contented, but wanting more works from Ms. O¿Kane.
