Abstract:

When board members of the Amelia Gower Women's Club begin dying - one by one - lesbian restaurateur Jane Lawless once again exchanges the heat of the kitchen for the sweltering danger of part-time private investigation. On the eve of a crucial announcement, Charlotte Fortnum, chairwoman of the Board of Directors and prominent community figure, is murdered. Then another board member is found dead in the club's private chamber. Has infighting among the board gone as far as murder? Are the secrets and suspicions swirling around club members and their families worth killing for? Along with her theatrical sidekick Cordelia Thorn, Jane begins to uncover the dark secrets that linger in the corridors of Minneapolis' oldest women's club. But as Jane takes on a range of high-profile suspects and closes in on the murderer, her own life hangs in the balance ...
