A propos du livre :

Synopsis :

Poor Meg Langslow. She?s blessed in so many ways. Michael, her boyfriend, is a handsome, delightful heartthrob who adores her. She?s a successful blacksmith, known for her artistic wrought-iron creations. But somehow Meg?s road to contentment is more rutted and filled with potholes than seems fair.

There are Michael?s and Meg?s doting but demanding mothers, for a start. And then there?s the fruitless hunt for a place big enough for the couple to live together. And a succession of crises brought on by the well-meaning but utterly wacky demands of her friends and family. Demands that Meg has a hard time refusing---which is why she?s tending the switchboard of Mutant Wizards, where her brother?s computer games are created, and handling all the office management problems that no one else bothers with. For companionship, besides a crew of eccentric techies, she has a buzzard with one wing---who she must feed frozen mice thawed in the office microwave---and Michael?s mother?s nightmare dog. Not to mention the psychotherapists who refuse to give up their lease on half of the office space, and whose conflicting therapies cause continuing dissension. This is not what Meg had in mind when she agreed to help her brother move his staff to new offices.

In fact, the atmosphere is so consistently loony that the office mail cart makes several passes through the reception room, with the office practical joker lying on top of it pretending to be dead, before Meg realizes that he?s become the victim of someone who wasn?t joking at all. He?s been murdered for real.

Donna Andrews?s debut book, Murder with Peacocks, won the St. Martin?s Malice Domestic best first novel contest and reaped a harvest of other honors as well. This is the fourth book in the Meg Langslow series, which features the intrepid Meg and her cast of oddball relatives. Their capers are a lighthearted joy to read.

Quatrième de couverture: Donna Andrews has won...
The Agatha
The Anthony
The Barry
The Malice Domestic Award
for...
Murder With Peacocks,
the first novel in her bird-themed mystery series

Now, more feathers are about to fly in. . .

Crouching Buzzard, Leaping Loon

As a favor to her brother, Meg agrees to tend the switchboard at his computer game company Mutant Wizards. For companionship, besides a crew of eccentric techies, she has a buzzard with one wing and her boyfriend's mother's nightmare dog. Not to mention the psychotherapists who refuse to give up their lease on half of the office space. This is not what Meg had in mind when she agreed to help her brother move his staff to new offices.

In fact, the atmosphere is so consistently loony that the office mail cart makes several passes through the reception room, with the office practical joker lying on top of it pretending to be dying, before Meg realizes that he's become the victim of someone who wasn't joking at all. He's been murdered for real. Now Meg has to play out one dangerous scenario to find out who's guilty-before a cold-blooded murderer ends her game for keeps.
