Life will never be the same for Meg Langslow after family
secrets are revealed, introducing a whole new layer of
intrigue in Donna Andrews's beloved series.
Meg's long-lost paternal grandfather, Dr. Blake, has hired
Stanley Denton to find her grandmother Cordelia. Dr. Blake
was reunited with his family when he saw Meg's pictureâ€”she's
a dead ringer for Cordeliaâ€”and now Stanley has found a trail
to his long-lost love in a small town less than an hour's
drive away. He convinces Meg to come with him to meet her,
but unfortunately, the woman they meet is Cordelia's
cousinâ€”Cordelia died several years ago, and the cousin
suspects she was murdered by her long-time neighbor.
Stanley and Meg agree to help track down the killer and get
justice for Cordelia. Grandfather even has perfect cover--he
will come to stage a rescue of the feral emus and ostriches
(escaped from an abandoned farm) that infest this town. He
dashes off to organize the rescueâ€”which will, of course,
involve most of Meg's family and friends in Caerphilly. But
then, the evil neighbor is murdered, and not only Cordelia's
cousin but also the entire contingent of emu-rescuers, who
have had conflict with the neighbor, are suspects. Only Meg
and the cousinâ€”who seems to share a lot of telling traits
with Megâ€”can find the real killer and clear the air in
The Good, the Bad, and the Emus, the newest
beverage-spittingly funny installment in this uproarious
series from the one-and-only Donna Andrews.
