Booklist Review

In I'd Kill for That,0 a dead body is discovered on the sixth hole of the Gryphon's Gate golf course after three people are mysteriously called to the exclusive gated community course one spring evening. Vanessa, a ruthless real-estate developer, quickly figures out that she is a suspect, given her many enemies, one of whom is obviously trying to set her up. Jerry, a down-on-his-luck trader, chalks the crusty academic's death up to bad luck--or so he hopes. And Toni, well, she has so much to live for, what with being a single parent and all; how could she get mixed up in this? But someone has the goods on all three and is playing them like puppets. The 13 contributors to this playful mystery include such popular and talented female mystery writers as Linda Fairstein and Rita Mae Brown. A thoroughly enjoyable tale. --Mary Frances Wilkens Copyright 2004 Booklist
