Matchbook: A Blue Sage Mystery
Desiree Prosapio, author
She's a funny, alcoholic homeless woman - who may or may not be schizoprenic. And she's trying to solve her daughter's murder. Carol Lassiter, the wisecracking, streetwise heroine of Matchbook, is emotionally lost after her daughter Ella's "alleged" suicide. But when a matchbook with a phone number scrawled inside is dropped into her "donations" box, Carol is dragged into a dangerous game of cat and mouse with a mystery man who dangles a dramatically different story of Ella's death. As she searches for the truth, Ella's secrets catch up with her and Carol must question her own tenuous sanity. Set on the streets of San Antonio, Matchbook is a compelling psychological mystery, as witty and entertaining as it is gripping. Perfect for fans of the witty and engrossing work of Grafton, Evanovich, Haason, and Scottoline.
