'If there's anybody funnier than Dorothy Cannell,? says Nancy Pickard, ?I don't want to meet her until my sides stop aching.' For thirteen years, the award-winning author of The Thin Woman, The Widows? Club, and Down the Garden Path has enchanted readers who relish Nancy Atherton, Carolyn Hart, and Diane Mott Davidson. Now she brings us her inimitable Ellie Haskell'heroine of the weight-loss wars'with her handsome husband, Bentley, and other beloved characters, like the caustic home helper Mrs. Malloy and truculent gardener Jonas Phipps, in a new mystery already selected, sight unseen, by the Mystery Guild.Spring-cleaning fever almost has Ellie scrubbing the Merlin's Court chandeliers with a toothbrush. But when yet another member of the Chitterton Fells Charwomen's Association is found dead, with a duster still clutched in her hand, Ellie must drop everything to discover what secrets the victims had swept under the carpet. Fizzing with deadly wit, an outrageous plot, and a wonderfully dotty cast, The Spring Cleaning Murders is Cannell at her best. ? A Mystery Guild Main Selection ? Penguin will reissue Down the Garden Path in May 1998
