More comic novel than mystery, The Chelsea Girl Murders takes its readers on a rollicking jaunt through the Big Apple. Whodunit isn't nearly as important as what's-Robin-gonna-do-about-it, and some of her solutions are pricelessly funny. As in her previous Robin Hudson outings Sparkle Hayter's observations on New Yorkers and their loony obsessions have just the right dash of caustic wit. --Kelly Flynn SIGNED by the Author; No Flaws or Blemishes...
