A-D-H-D! Oh! Look! A Mystery!

Meet MJ O'Malley. She's impulsive, easily distractible, and even more easily bored. But when a hot lawyer hires her to create a flash mob and people start dropping dead--by flamingo?--well, murder in Pisgah Cove, North Carolina is the brightest, shiniest object to capture her attention ever!

But can she actually solve the crime before she becomes the final victim? Hop aboard for the zany romp and stick around for deadly murder.

With the help of Miss Taz, her Chihuahua guard dog, Fluffy the feral attack cat, a reluctant lawyer as sidekick, and her fierce intellect?

[Yes, I said fierce intellect.]

[Yes. Really.]

[Don't diss the dys-brain, dude.]

[Where were we?]

{Oh, right!]

With the help of Miss Taz, Fluffy, Ben, and her fierce intellect, MJ's got this case covered.

Because MJ has finally found her mission in life.

Meet MJ O'Malley.

She solves murders.

About the Author

Patricia Burroughs [aka Pooks] put in grueling research for this mystery series that has spanned six decades. She lived with what she affectionately calls her dys-brain for most of those years knowing only that her thought processes, communications, and even her ability to do numbers or find her way out of a paper bag were a little off. Sometimes? A lot off.

Whenever she traveled with other writers to conferences it generally turned into an episode of I Love Lucy, and she was the common denominator. But the thing about Lucy? She was fun.

Discovering that she had ADHD, dyscalculia, and associated cognitive disorders , helped Pooks understand a lot about things she's always taken for granted, and sometimes realize there might be an accomidation to help, but often knowing that hey, she's never going to be good with numbers. Now she has a reason for it, that's all. She no longer gets to tell people she's allergic to numbers.

She hopes you enjoy a warm, wacky visit inside MJ O'Malley's brain. Are you as smart as she is? Can you figure out whodunnit first? If so, congrats! Pooks hopes you have a great time doing it!

Revenge of the Killer Flamingos, told in first person from only the main character MJ’s point of view, reflects dys-brain well. What seems all over the map at first glance is really a tightly drawn classic murder mystery that allows the reader to solve the case along with the detective. The humor is occasionally laugh-out-loud, with lots of intermittent giggles. The entire book is slightly crazy, but oh so perfect. While first person can be limiting – you only ever know what one character is thinking or feeling! – in this case it works. If you ever have trouble focusing and are easily distracted by shiny objects this is definitely a book for you. Even if you don’t have the aforementioned tendencies, this book is worth a second, and third look. MJ and Ben have a future and I for one can’t wait to go along for the ride. I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this novel.
