Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Shes not Miss Marple. Her friends are no Charlies Angels. Nevertheless, 75-year-old Gladdy Gold and her gang of eccentric Fort Lauderdale retirees are out, about, and hunting down a killer-one who is silently stalking them.

Selma Beller was the first to go-but Gladdy and her neighbors never suspected murder until another of their friends died in an eerily similar way. Now a handsome young detective wont listen to them, Hy Binder wont stop telling them dirty jokes, and crazy old Greta Kronk is doing everything humanly possible to make herself into a suspect. But amid the endless rounds of poolside kibitzing, early-bird specials, bittersweet memories, and interminable grocery-shopping trips, Gladdy and her gals are about to discover how the murders are being committed. And when it comes to catching this culprit-time really is running out….

Synopsis:

She may be getting on in years, but 75-year-old Gladdy Gold and her gang of eccentric Fort Lauderdale retirees set out to solve the mysterious murders occurring in their retirement center in this first entry of a new mystery series. Original.

What do you take with you to Spring Break? May I suggest a book by Rita Lakin? "Getting Old is Murder" is an excellent beach read for those of us who have gotten tired of the paperbacks with a Fabio look-a-like or trying to find a stopping point for a Gresham novel!

The pace is quick, the murders intriguing, the quirky characters are very like your best friends in the real world. As Billy Crystal is quoted, "Let's face it. We all have the same five relatives."
