All Ellison Russell wanted was an update on her stock portfolio. Instead, she found her broker dead.
With an unexpected out-of-town guest at her house, Ellison is too busy for a murder investigation. Only this time, Detective Anarchy Jones wants her help, and she can’t deny the handsome detective. Can Mr. Coffee supply her with enough caffeine to keep her brain sharp and everyone else happy?
Juggling bodies (one, two, three, four), two-faced friends, her social calendar, and a cat (yes, a cat) is taxing but Mother might be the biggest challenge of all.
With a killer drawing closer, can Ellison put together the pieces or will she be the one getting stabbed in the back?

BACK STABBERS by Julie Mulhern | A Henery Press Mystery. If you like one, you’ll probably like them all.
Julie Mulhern is the USA Today bestselling author of The Country Club Murders. She is a Kansas City native who grew up on a steady diet of Agatha Christie. She spends her spare time whipping up gourmet meals for her family, working out at the gym and finding new ways to keep her house spotlessly clean—and she's got an active imagination. Truth is—she's an expert at calling for take-out, she grumbles about walking the dog and the dust bunnies under the bed have grown into dust lions.
Great read! Keeps you guessing until the end! Love the characters and the humor!
I'm completely obsessed with this mystery series. The commentary of fashion, etiquette, and societal mores are cleverly woven within the murder mystery.
Back Stabbers (The Country Club Murders #8) is truly spectacular! This book does not need to be read as a stand alone but needs to be read in order in the series. If not, the reader will miss out on so many details of the relationships between these complex characters Mulhern’s readers have grown to love.
Mulhern takes us back into the 1975 in Kansas City., MO. We join Ellison Russell, her daughter Grace, her parents, her boyfriend Detective Anarchy Jones, her housekeeper and friend Aggie and her friends in the Country Club set. What an eclectic group of friends!
Ellison’s life is always a daring adventure and this novel is filled with epic adventures! Starting with finding her broker dead, unexpected company arriving that may cause her Mother to have a heart attack and then the body count starts adding up. Gossip is rampant among the Country Club set. Do you know what it’s like to be stabbed in the back? Who is cheating on who? What is the real motivation? An excellent novel from start to finish!
