A body at book club

"When octogenarian sleuth Myrtle Clover discovers Naomi Pelter's dead body during a book club meeting, the other members seem shocked. But Myrtle can read between the lines.

The book club members seem too sweet to be killers, but Myrtle knows better than to judge books by their covers."--Page 4 of cover.
