A Dirty Business MysteryBook - 2011
When Paula Holliday agrees to act as exhibit manager for a reclusive artist she's expecting a laid back weekend picking up gardening tips. She doesn't expect to be knee-deep in horticultural sabotage, beheaded gnomes, homicide, and something called The Javits Curse. Then an overeager attendee is found floating in the river and Paula realizes she accidentally holds a clue to his murder -- that's when the garden gloves come off and this flower show turns into a real Slugfest. This time out Paula is joined by a colorful cast that includes Rolanda "Fort" Knox, a no-nonsense security guard; Guy Anzalone, Brooklyn's Tumbled Stone King; Jamal Harrington, a high school kid with a black belt and a green thumb; JC Kaufman, a feisty lady who hates leaving home without her weapon of choice; and a slick marketing guy hawking the hottest new product at the show, a foolproof pest repellant that people are dying to get their hands on. With limited means and her ragtag crew, Paula must solve her toughest mystery yet and root out a killer before she finds herself pushing up daisies.
