Synopses & Reviews

Review:

"Brett's send-ups in the past have included package vacation travel and corporate culture, so it isn't strange to see Mrs. Pargeter, that formidable 'lady of a certain age,' accompanying a friend to a health spa. There are all kinds of opportunities for chicanery at a fat farm, and Brett makes the most of it. Strange characters and unknown dead persons abound, as Mrs. Pargeter, with the help of her deceased husband's business associates—'Ankle-Deep' 'Awkright,' 'Jack the Knife,' 'Stan the Stapler,' and the lugubrious Truffler Mason—skewers the health care industry that is killing its devotees. And as the investigation unfolds, the reader is treated to a wry and funny commentary on modern day foibles." Reviewed by Daniel Weiss, Virginia Quarterly Review (Copyright 2006 Virginia Quarterly Review)
