Nashville, TN, March 27, 2008 --(PR.com
)-- There’s something strange about the Mitchells. For one thing, they hardly seem as if they’re related. When their neighbor, Pam—a woman who was born suspicious—and her best friend Millie decide to snoop, they discover that Mr. Mitchell may not be who he claims to be. In fact, he may actually be … dead. With a humor and wryness à la Desperate Housewives, Hanover Easy is a detective story that will have you laughing aloud while it also keeps you on the edge of your seat.
In Hanover Easy, award-winning author Debra P. Whitehead’s latest novel, we find a richly diverse cast of characters who move the mystery along at an intriguing and often sexy pace: There’s the archeologist who thinks he’s Indiana Jones, and Millie’s hunky friend, who every woman in town would like to devour. Then there’s Pam’s daughter, who may be falling in love with a felon. But we mustn’t forget the Mitchells: the supposed “teenage son,” with the predatory body language and the “wife” who looks like she should be dancing on top of a bar. And Mr. Mitchell?
“The snapshot had been taken after the accident and was meant to be used for identification purposes so the family wouldn’t have to see the body. It probably wasn’t a very good likeness of the man, his features were slack in death and devoid of personality. But none of that mattered. Only a glance was needed to see that this Leon Mitchell bore no resemblance to the man living on Oak Street with his make-believe family. Leon Mitchell from Cleveland, Ohio, who died in 1999, was African American. Pam gasped. ‘I guess that rules out computer error on the dead thing.’”
Just who are these people? Are they hiding from the law, or running from the Mob? And those strangers in the woods—could they be the Feds? And what’s in that stolen package? And whose body parts were just found? Hanover Easy takes readers on a humorous and dangerous romp that just may prove to be too much for the good folks of quiet Hanover, Tennessee.
