Trade Paperback

Big truck, big dog, big hair. Bad attitude.

Roxy Abruzzo, bestseller Nancy Martin's latest creation, is the sexy, streetwise niece of a Pittsburgh crime boss, and she's trying to stay on the straight and narrow . . . most of the time. But now and then temptation is just too much for hot-blooded Roxy. As she prowls the mean streets looking for architectural treasures, she can't help swiping an ancient Greek statue that's not exactly hers. Then the statue's owner, heir to a billion-dollar steel fortune, gets himself killed, and the police investigation sweeps Roxy into a mess that requires all of her wits and wiles to escape. All this plus a dotty grand dame, a slippery lawyer, and an avaricious socialite or two makes for a lethal combination of danger and desperation—with Roxy in the middle.

With her wicked sense of humor and a devilishly clever premise, author of the beloved Blackbird Sisters mysteries, Nancy Martin has started another outstanding mystery series with Foxy Roxy.*

The only witness to the arson was a one-armed marble statue of a naked man with ivy growing where his fig leaf should have been.

Praise for Foxy Roxy

“A hilarious combination of Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum and Lisa Scottoline's Bennie Rosato” —The Times-Picayune

“Light years away from Agatha Christie's Miss Marple, and is grittier and more sexual than Laura Lippman's Tess Monaghan.” —Pittsburgh Tribune Review

“In this stellar first in a new series, Martin introduces Roxy Abruzzo, ultra-sexy Pittsburgh sleuth . . . a tough girl like Evanovich's Stephanie Plum. . . . A wild cat-and-mouse game with a killer that will leave Martin's fans clamoring for more.” —Publishers Weekly (starred review)
