Death by Discount

by Mary Vermillion
£9.99   paperback  Alyson Books (2004)

Death by Discount by Mary Vermillion Savings...convenience...and straight-up murder... Nothing short of homicide is going to drag headstrong Mara Gilgannon back to her dinky hometown. So homicide it is, as Mara finds herself back in the heartland, unraveling clues surrounding the death of her Aunt Glad. Mara soon begins to suspect that Glad's vocal opposition to the opening of a local Wal-Mart may have led to her murder. But nothing is ever as simple as small-town life would have you believe. First, Mara butts heads with police chief Chuck Conover, who stole her girlfriend when they were both in high school. Then she becomes rattled by the attention of a beautiful rookie police officer, Neale Warner, who's conducting her own investigation on the sly. On top of all that, Mara loses her prime suspect, a key supporter of Wal-Mart, when he's run over by a car - twice! Someone in town has taken the issue of the corporatization of rural America to a deadly new level. 'Death by Discount', Mary Vermillion's extraordinary first book in the Mara Gilgannon mystery series, packs a wallop and brings mystery fans a smart, sexy new heroine who's anything but cut-rate.
