Three homeless women have been plucked from the streets of St. Louis, strangled, and propped up against tombstones in local cemeteries without Det. Sarah Linquist's Task Force getting to first base. But when Mary Margaret Brooks, Ann Yates's wealthy, Alzheimer's-stricken Aunt M, wanders away from her nursing home to become the fourth victim, Ann hires Meg Darcy to ride Linquist till she produces results. She doesn't know that Meg would love to ride Linquist all night long, or at least get further than first base. The detection in Marcy's first novel--with sidelights on the nursing home staff, Aunt M's heirs, and an inexcusably tangential missing poodle--would have been more distinctive if Meg weren't so obsessed with getting into Linquist's pants. -- Copyright ©1997, Kirkus Associates, LP.

Meg Darcy is single, lonely, working-class, lesbian, and a private investigator enamored with Sarah, the attractive and aloof City Police nicknamed "The Ice Queen". Meg's gay comrade-in-arms, Patrick, says she's a classic closet case, and definitely not one for Meg to crack. But the opportunity comes as their paths cross at the St. Louis cemetery where a serial killer has dumped the bodies of homeless women. Conflict and competition dominate their interactions, particularly their erotic entanglement, as both Meg and Sarah strive to be the first to find the killer. Cemetary Murders is a rousing good read, one of those mysteries spiced with tension and flavored with colorful charectors that make it perfect leisure time reading. -- Midwest Book Review
