About Show Up Dead:
When people call her a control freak, Peri Milano takes it as a compliment. As the preferred go-to special assistant to Philadelphia’s rich and almost famous, having everything under control is part of her job description. With the organizational skills of a data processing program, the discretion of the CIA, and the creativity of an Ikea research and design engineer, Peri fulfills whatever whim her customers fancy and finds whatever methods needed for their madness.
Never has she received a request she couldn’t complete nor a problem she couldn’t solve.
So when Mr. Wooley asked her to plan a funeral-themed coming-out party to say farewell to his “old” self, Peri has it under control. When he actually shows up dead, she’s still got it under control.
But as the murder investigation swirls around her and another client receives blackmail letters, her grip on the world starts to loosen. And when her son winds up in the hospital, her cousin winds up on the missing person’s list, and she winds up being responsible for an orphaned, adult soap-star wannabe, Peri’s not sure she wants to be in control of anything ever again.
But someone needs to figure it all out. And since she’s so good at it, what other choice does she have but to save everyone in her little corner of the world?
Hopefully she’ll have time to save herself.
