Roxy Abruzzo has to be careful to stay one step ahead of trouble—especially now that a limited cash flow has her collecting debts for her uncle Carmine, one of the last old-time Mob bosses in Pittsburgh. With her daughter’s college tuition to pay, Roxy can almost convince herself that the jobs aren’t illegal.
But when Carmine’s consigliere offers Roxy a contract to kidnap someone, that’s one line she won’t cross. Trouble is that when the kidnapping victim turns up murdered, Roxy’s number one on the police hit parade. To protect herself, she investigates and soon learns the victim had a big secret—or two.
Add a rock singer, a pesky paleontologist, and a sexy chef with a taste for whatever Roxy dishes up, and you’ve got a caper full of laugh-out-loud mayhem. Peppered with one-liners, Sticky Fingers—the second Roxy Abruzzo mystery—is even tastier than the first.
