Feisty, forty-something and fearless, Cass Tuplin isn’t exactly the Sherlock Holmes type. Yet as Rusty Bore’s peer-appointed private investigator she just can’t seem to avoid ending up in hot water.

For Cass Tuplin, proprietor of the Rusty Bore Takeaway (and definitely not an unlicensed private investigator), it’s weird enough that her neighbour Vern’s somehow acquired a lady friend. But then he asks Cass to look into the case of the dead rats someone’s dumped on Joanne’s doorstep.

She’s barely started when Joanne goes missing, leaving hints of an unsavoury past. Then a private investigator from Melbourne turns up asking questions about Joanne’s involvement in a fatal house fire - and before you can say ‘unauthorised investigation’ Cass is back on the case.

Reviews for Live and Let Fry (#3 Rusty Bore)

`Finely wrought and highly amusing...a wonderful new series in the comedy crime genre.' * Australian * `Sue Williams is Australia's answer to New Jersey's Janet Evanovich.' * NZ Listener * `This book is like going to visit your regional relatives and having a bunch of their friends pop by for a chat. It's comforting, slightly dishevelled, wildly entertaining...Live and Let Fry is self-aware, observant, and with a fresh take on a crime hero, this is as irresistible as potato cakes after a swim.' * Readings *
