Publisher's Summary

Ellison Russell wanted a decorator, not a corpse. Too bad she finds Mrs. White in the study killed with a revolver. Things go from bad to worse when she finds Mr. White in the dining room killed with a candlestick. With so many bodies, is it any wonder Detective Anarchy Jones' new partner considers Ellison a suspect?

With the country club gossips talking a mile a minute, an unexpected cocktail party, a visit from Aunt Sis, and a romantic decision, Ellison hardly has time to think about murder. Unfortunately, the killer has plenty of time to think about her.

Watching the Detectives

Julie Mulhern has a wonderful way with words. I have read each book in the series and they get better and better.
Callie Beaulieu does a stupendous job of enacting the book.
Looking forward to more!

Wonderful Series!

Such an entertaining series, set in the 70’s – who doesn’t love revisiting the 70’s! Ellis can’t seem to go a week without finding a dead body and this week is no exception. The author does a wonderful job of rounding out the characters and describing the scenes which pulls you into the story. I definitely recommend this series if you like a mystery and the 70’s with a little bit of romance thrown in (just a little)! BTW, this is a wonderful audio book, the narrator is awesome!

Julie Mulhern does it again

Once again, I am impressed by Julie Mulhern's writing. The stories in this series have a feminist undertone without it being overdone and obvious. Mulhern is one of my favorite writers and I look forward to the next book in this series.

Ridiculous story

On one hand the author strives to show how women are abused by men yet has the heroine exhibit the cliche used in most female murder mysteries, a woman who is helpless to resist the handsome policeman.

This writer is talented but lazy. Rather than build on the strong lead character she uses the same old, tired story line.

Ellison and Anarchy

One of my favorite series. Ellison may have been sheltered, but she really starts to grow. And Anarchy is still Anarchy.

1970s Setting Sublime

The setting, the clothes, the country club and great characters make this another must read in the series. With a lot of hard work, women have gained more independence since then!
