Deadly Housewives

housewifeDeadly Housewives, a collection of short stories, features new works by Sara Paretsky, Nevada Barr, Marcia Muller, Carole Nelson Douglas, Nancy Pickard, S.J. Rozan and others. In each story, a housewife gets rid of a cheating husband, or another troublesome relative, in an imaginative way. I must warn you that the first story by Nevada Barr has a good bit of cursing in it. That’s what the title, GDMFSOB, stands for. But it was entertaining! My favorite story so far, Lawn and Order, is set in a prosperous Dallas suburb, where a mother finds a way to deal with her manipulative daughter in law. If you want a fun read, and perhaps some ideas on getting rid of someone…this is your book.
