Joan Boswell has had work published in many magazines and anthologies. As a member of the writing group the Ladies' Killing Circle, she has had stories in each of their seven anthologies. Her Hollis Grant mysteries include Cut to the Quick and Cut to the Chase. She lives in Toronto.
Music may soothe the savage breast, but in this fifth collection of witty and wicked crime fiction from the Ladiesâ€™ 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 "Thereâ€™s No Business Like Show Business". Itâ€™s a collection you wonâ€™t want to put down until youâ€™ve read every one and hummed all the tunes. Youâ€™ll never listen to your favourite songs again without wondering what nefarious deeds they may have inspired.
