Killer CutsLarge Print - 2009 | Center Point large print ed.
Living life on the lam and working wherever she can find a paycheck, Helen Hawthorne has a knack for keeping a low profile. Currently, she's mixing pay cuts with haircuts, working as a gofer for Miguel Angel, a flamboyant manager of a chic salon. The Fort Lauderdale hair salon is one of those where a trim can cost as much as a car payment and a blowout can wipe you out. But when one of the salon's most famous clients, gossip blogger and TV cable show host Kingman "King" Oden, is murdered at his own wedding, things get a little hairy. The salon gets tangled up in all manner of negative publicity when Miguel is identified as the prime suspect. But Miguel ingeniously lies low by dressing in drag. Meanwhile, Helen is determined to find the murderer, who favors spiked heels. And when Helen starts getting threatening notes, it becomes all the more imperative that she figure out who at that wedding was dressed to kill.
