Product Description
Book three in the Anthony Award-winning mystery series featuring Amanda Pepper, the resourceful English teacher at Philly Prep.
Amanda is sorting books for a school fundraiser, when she comes across a book for battered women that contains a special and frightening message from its original, anonymous owner. Desperate to learn who donated the books, Amanda's search leads her to deliberate brutality and its cold-blooded consequences.
Gillian Roberts is "the Dorothy Parker of mystery writers, laughing when--especially when--it hurts, and giving more wit per page than most writers give per book."

I loved this! It's the third in the series and I read it first, which is unusual for me. (Since then I've read the first, Caught Dead in Philadelphia, and enjoyed that as well). Amanda Pepper, the English teacher/sleuth is a sympathetic character, and the interesting plot all starts with the discovery of a book. I'm pleased anytime the topic of domestic violence is given attention. And, though I've had this book in my possession way too long, at least now might be a good time to move it along, since Philadelphia was prominently in the news just last week! ;-)

Thanks for sharing this!
