Publisher's Summary

Constance Leidl and Charlie Meiklejohn are an unlikely pair of detectives. He is a former arson detective; she is a psychologist. Together, the husband-and-wife team has a knack for unraveling a mystery. "Seven Kinds of Death" is a famous sculpture, but the name takes on new meaning when bodies start turning up at the creator's art colony.

A party launching the art tour of an old friend and the opening of her husband's condominiums turns tragic when the sculptures are vandalized and one of the guests, a highly regarded art-magazine editor, is found strangled in one of the new condos. Charlie and Constance interview some of the guests and learn there has already been another death at the condo site, viewed at the time as an accident. Connecting the two deaths leads the two sleuths to an unexpected suspect.

Eight Kinds of Death

Whoa, please tell me my favorite author didn't write this dog. I couldn't wait for this book to end. The characters were annoying and plentiful. If you want to be dragged around an art colony by your ankles sign up for this embarrassment. Kate shall return.
