|Plot Summary of The Bodies Out Back|
|"An apartment too good not to rent, an absent landlady/housemate who turns out to be a he and not a she, a jealous boyfriend, and a neighbor murdered in the back yard. What more could any young woman like Phillis Toner wish for in one week end?
Pat Montgomary returns from vacation to find Phillis living in his home. Together, they set about to find out whodunit.
Throw in a new creepy housekeeper, a voyeur watching Phillis' apartment, a neighbor who listens over garden walls. There's Pat's Aunt Molly who knows family secrets.
And, of course, there's a second body.
If you enjoy reading about a couple of amateur sleuths tracking down a killer, you'll enjoy THE BODIES OUT BACK.
