3 WOMEN, 4 TOWNS, 5 BODIES If you like your plots hard-boiled, your romances illicit, and your beautiful dames worldly, look no farther than this fast-paced collection of gleeful tales of trickery, murder and slow-simmered revenge. In the title novella, three women use wit, seduction and weapons to master the men they meet. The ribald reverend in "The Second Coming" meets his match in nineteen-year-old Charity. On a darker note, in "Storm Painter," an artist moves in with a writer, but their past destroys his third novel. Place is important. Only an Italian detective could solve the case with a singularly shaped tortellini.
