Item description for A Dyeing Shame: Death at the Beauty Box by Elizabeth Spann Craig...

When Tami Smith, boozing beautician at the Beauty Box is found dead with a pair of hair shears in her back, there are suspects and secrets aplenty in her small Southern town.

Enter octogenarian Myrtle Clover. Bored by the small town's offerings of bingo and bridge, she's intrigued by the crime...and her neighbors' secrets. But discovering (and blabbing) secrets got Tami killed and Myrtle soon learns her new hobby isn't just dangerous - it's deadly.

Reviews - What do customers think about A Dyeing Shame: Death at the Beauty Box?

Enduring heroine, funny read  Nov 29, 2006
Reviewed by Olivera Baumgartner-Jackson for Reader Views (10/06)

Just like any other good mystery, this one is a great study of human nature. The characters are believable and if not all of them are endearing, they are all entertaining. One cannot help but wish for a granny as wacko as Myrtle Clover - a gutsy, funny, gossiping octogenarian mother of the local Chief of Police, Red.

When the local beautician is found dead, Myrtle decided to investigate - although her son thinks she should stick to pursuits that are more suitable to a Southern Lady than sleuthing. Well, he would not mind if she does not cook either - and for reasons that lead him to that conclusion you better pick up the book yourself. In any case - Myrtle is a stubborn old bird and she decides that the local police could use some help in discovering the culprit. Playing a feeble old lady at times and just being her true, rather forceful self at other times, she discovers a lot of different, buried secrets about citizens of Bradley, a charming, small Southern town where everything is not quite as it seems. She even finds time to play the matchmaker.

The killer is eventually found, but not before Myrtle nearly loses her life as well. Being a meddlesome woman can be dangerous to one's health, after all.

"A Dyeing Shame: Death at the Beauty Box" was an amusing, intelligent read. I found the story well-constructed and the characters believable. The dialogue sounds just a bit stiff at times, but that does not hinder the progress of the story itself. I would recommend this book to anybody who needs a good laugh now and then and who enjoys a clever mystery story.
