Fresh Fiction Review

Our Lady of Immaculate Deception
Nancy Martin

Reviewed by Suan Wilson
Posted February 13, 2010


Roxy Abruzzo carries an abundance of baggage. Among her problems, she is the grandniece of a Pittsburg Mafia boss who continually tries to lure Roxy into the family business. She struggles keeping her architectural-salvage company afloat in order to support herself and teenage daughter. In order to survive in the business, Roxy does not mind bending the law when it suits her purpose. Her current predicament is a testament to the trouble the touch of larceny in her soul can bring her.

While salvaging items from the remains of wealthy Hyde estate, a murder is committed. Roxy's friendship with the victim and her close proximity to the murder places her on the suspect list. Her illegal removal of a statue makes honesty to the police difficult. Before Roxy knows it, someone is taking shots at her. Using her wide range of acquaintances and bizarre friends, Roxy begins poking into the Hyde family and their complicated family dynamics. Another murder occurs and Roxy finds herself knee-deep in trouble.

Ms. Martin's new series is smart and sexy with a terrific cast of quirky characters. Roxy proves an unconventional heroine with her array of sexual partners and horror of commitment. The deft plotting keeps readers guessing to the very end the identity of the killer.
