Randye Lordon, "She’s Dead, Who Cares"
Join BookHampton for
An Evening with Randye Lordon
at East Hampton Library
If you want anything done right in the Hamptons there is only one person to call: Mary Moody, celebrity concierge who can handle everything from hiring Cirque du Soleil to perform at a wedding to the more mundane juggling of privileged brats, wealthy wannabes, and getting the Bentley detailed.
She never expected to add sleuth to her job description, however when a client-a nasty but well-known art dealer-goes missing, Mary is hired by the one person who notices and cares that the woman is gone.
And she's gone, all right, never to return.
Friendship compels Mary to agree to dig around for clues in the wealthy Long Island beach community where people are losing their heads-literally.
As the bodies pile up and the list of people with motives for murder grows longer, Mary discovers one can manage a psycho bride, a nasty clean-up south of the highway, a murder, and becoming the number one suspect for the police.
Along the way Lordon has a grand time satirizing the over-the-top Hamptons one-percenters, creating a suspenseful mystery, and adding a loving tribute to dog lovers who know that man's best friend is not just an idle phrase.
Mystery, murder, and a good cocktail will keep you laughing on the edge of your seat.
