About Foxy Roxy (from the publisher): Big truck, big dog, big hair. Bad attitude.
Roxy Abruzzo is the sexy, streetwise niece of a Pittsburgh crime boss, and she’s trying to stay on the straight and narrow ... most of the time. But now and then temptation is just too much for hot-blooded Roxy. As she prowls the mean streets looking for architectural treasures, she can't help swiping an ancient Greek statue that's not exactly hers. Then the statue's owner, heir to a billion-dollar steel fortune, gets himself killed, and the police investigation sweeps Roxy into a mess that requires all of her wits and wiles to escape. All this plus a dotty grand dame, a slippery lawyer, and an avaricious socialite or two makes for a lethal combination of danger and desperation—with Roxy in the middle.
Foxy Roxy was originally published in hardcover as Our Lady of Immaculate Deception.
