Halloween night in Sorenson, Wisconsin, usually resembles any other small town: trick-or-treaters, costume parties, and lots of cheerfully scary decorations. But Deputy Coroner Mattie Winston is finding this year a little different, because among all the fake carnage is a very real, very dead body. . .. <P> When Mattie and her boss/best friend, Izzy, are called to the home of waitress and part-time model Shannon Tolliver, they find the ghoulish decorations just a bit too authentic. For among the fake blood and skeletons is the corpse of Shannon herself--and the evidence screams murder. <P> Since the whole town knows Shannon recently had a very public argument with her estranged husband, Erik, hes suspect #1 for homicide detective Steve Hurley. Tall, dark, and blissfully blue-eyed detective Steve Hurley, that is. . .But Mattie happens to know Erik truly loved his wife, and is simply incapable of the brutal act--even though he owns the exact same caliber handgun as the murder weapon. . . <P> Determined to unearth the truth--and maybe spend a little quality time with Detective Hunky--Mattie puts her scalpel-sharp medical skills to work, and digs a little deeper. What she uncovers is stranger than anyone could have imagined. . . <P> It seems Shannons murder is just the tip of a very fatal iceberg. Now, in order to solve a case thats getting more dangerous by the minute--and to save Erik from the slammer--Mattie will have to risk everything to catch a killer whos capable of doing anything once hes cornered. And this time, its not just Matties life thats on the line. . . <P> Praise for Working Stiff <P> Sassy, sexy, and suspenseful, Annelise Ryan knocks em dead in her wry and original <em>Working Stiff.</em> --Carolyn Hart, author of <em>Dare to Die</em> <P> Move over, Stephanie Plum. Make way for Mattie Winston, the funniest deputy coroner to cut up a corpse since, well, ever. I loved every minute I spent with her in this sharp and sassy debut mystery. Laura Levine, author of <em>Killer Cruise </em><P> Mattie Winston, RN, wasnt looking for excitement when she became a morgue assistant--quite the contrary--but she got plenty and so will reader who wont be able to put this book down. Leslie Meier, author of <em>Mothers Day Murder</em> <P> Working Stiff has it all: suspense, laughter, a spicy dash of romance--and a heroine whos guaranteed to walk off with your heart. Mattie Winston is an unforgettable character.
