She’s not Miss Marple. Her friends are no Charlie’s Angels. Nevertheless, 75-year-old Gladdy Gold and her gang of eccentric Fort Lauderdale retirees are out, about, and hunting down a killer–one who is silently stalking them.
Selma Beller was the first to go–but Gladdy and her neighbors never suspected murder until another of their friends died in an eerily similar way. Now a handsome young detective won’t listen to them, Hy Binder won’t stop telling them dirty jokes, and crazy old Greta Kronk is doing everything humanly possible to make herself into a suspect. But amid the endless rounds of poolside kibitzing, early-bird specials, bittersweet memories, and interminable grocery-shopping trips, Gladdy and her gals are about to discover how the murders are being committed. And when it comes to catching this culprit–time really is running out….

Getting old is Murder
I love to laugh. I laughed hard at some of the antics of Gladdy and her girls.
I love to read books that explore social issues, as does this book with growing old.
I loved the movie "Last Vegas" that showed the evolving ideals of older indviduals. This book has that same wonderful enlightenment that the four older men in the movie found.
I love independence, friendship, and loyalty. I also admire a persons ability to forgive. This book delves into the lives and traits of senior citizens with humor and realism.
I look forward to reading the next book.
Not exactly the Jessica Fletcher of Boca
This author's first go around with the 'little old lady solves a mystery' was kind of clunky. There are a lot of characters and she spends a lot of time fleshing them out, but the book never really took hold of me. I was intrigued enough to try another in the series, tho.
