Pumped for Murder
A Dead-End Job Mystery #10
by Elaine Viets
May 3, 2011
Available in: Hardcover
The latest Dead-End Job mystery from the national bestselling author of Half-Priced Homicide.
Helen Hawthorne and her new hubby Phil have opened their own P.I. agency and their very first client is Shelby, who thinks her husband is developing a killer body for another woman.
To keep track of the suspected cheater, Helen gets a dead-end job at Fantastic Fitness, where she has to pump iron to stay employed. Then the budding agency takes on a murder case, and Helen has to move her workouts to the early morning just to keep up. With so much weight on her aching shoulders, will Helen catch a killer—or just drop dead from exhaustion?
Elaine Viets actually works the same dead-end jobs as her character, Helen Hawthorne. She has been a dress shop clerk, bookseller and a telemarketer who called you at dinner time. You probably hung up on her. MURDER BETWEEN THE COVERS is the second book in the Dead- End Job series. She and Helen have a real future working jobs that go nowhere. Elaine has just signed a contract for three more books.
She lives in South Florida with her husband, Don Crinklaw. They collect parking tickets.
