It was no surprise to anyone when somebody strangled Kitty Bloodworth's extremely irritating cousin Will Ann Lloyd. The woman got on the wrong side of practically every single resident in their small town of Metropolis, Illinois. But it was a big surprise when the Bloodworths discovered Cousin Will Ann's body tangled in jumper cables and stuffed into the trunk of their beloved 1957 Chevy, affectionately known as Sadie. Which of Kitty and Jack's nearest and dearest gained access to the Bloodworth's fortress like barn? Why did victim Will Ann Lloyd hire a private investigator to follow her own son? Why did she blow into Farley's Cafeteria shortly before her murder and interrupt the meeting of the local antique car club by calling Kitty's youngest daughter, Sunny, a sneak and a tramp? Can the Bloodworths play a real live game of chicken with a killer and avoid a hear on collision? Fifty Seven Heaven is a humorous cozy set in the small town of Metropolis, Illinois, where everyone knows everyone else. One by one, the Bloodworths'family members, old friends, and antique car club buddies produce unbreakable alibis, proving none of them could have killed Will Ann Lloyd. Yet one of them must have.
