St. Martin's Paperbacks

When you’re an agent for the IRS, it’s always tax time. And this season, Tara Holloway is up to her neck in work with two very knotty cases. One involves a charismatic minister who’s using his mega-church as a tax shelter. The other is a crazy militant who’s trying to turn Texas into a separate country. With her boyfriend out of town and her partner reassigned, Tara is on her own—and things are getting hairy.

If dealing with the Lone Star State isn’t enough, Tara has other new issues to take into account: There’s a sexy new agent named Nick, who’s got her head in the clouds...and Tara’s boss, Lu, who’s having a hair problem of epic proportions: not even her Chinese contraband industrial-strength hairspray is enough to keep her signature strawberry blonde beehive from falling flat. Can Tara help Lu find a wig—and keep from wigging out over Nick? Love, updos, taxes—this time, Tara’s got a whole lot of kinks to iron out…

REVIEWS

Praise for Death, Taxes, and Extra-Hold Hairspray

"Lurking beneath the humor and action that characterize this series is a serious look at how a slick religious con man can fleece his flock. Noah Fischer has a nation bamboozled, and Tara's and Nick's determination to help his congregation see the light advances their characters in unexpected ways. As usual, the pace is quick without being frenetic, and the breezy narrative style is perfection - fun and sexy without being over the top." --RT Book Reviews on Death, Taxes, and Extra-Hold Hairspray
