Going apartment hunting soon? Willing to move in with a roommate who isn't there? If you are, you'll need nerves of steel. Especially, after reading Bodies Out Back. This is the situation in which Phillis Toner found herself when she answered an ad placed by a sweet old lady for an apartment in a lovely old house in a wealthy part of town. Though she had misgivings, the apartment and rent were too good to ignore and she desperately needed a place to lave so she moved in. Then her roommate came home. Expecting a woman named Pat, the sweet old lady's niece, the Pat with whom she found herself living turned out to be a young man named patrick Montgomery. And Phillis knew her jealous fiance, Carl, who was a policeman would not understand nor accept the situation. She immediately started making plans to move, in spite of the fact that she came to like Pat, when a body in the back yard put everything on hold. Then the suggestion was made that she might have been the intended victim. This intriguing tale will keep you reading, wanting to know what is on the next page, wanting to know the why of each subplot and see how they are resolved. There is enough mystery in this imaginative tale to satisfy even the most demanding reader. I hope this is only the first mystery by this talented and creative author. Enjoy.
