Music may soothe the savage breast, but in this fifth collection of witty and wicked crime fiction from the Ladies' Killing Circle, music provides the background for tales of murder and mayhem. Eighteen stories by Canadian women crime writers along with poems from Joy Hewitt Mann take their inspiration from titles as varied as the upbeat "Wake Up Little Suzie" through the romantic "Summertime" and musicals such as "There's No Business Like Show Business". It's a collection you won't want to put down until you've read every one and hummed all the tunes. You'll never listen to your favourite songs again without wondering what nefarious deeds they may have inspired.

Short mystery stories by Canadian female writers. I really liked these stories because I could identify with many of the settings. It's fun when a story you are reading is set in your town or some place you have been. A grat way to introduce yourself to Canadian mystery writers. Read full review
