Dead Gorgeous (Paperback)Peter Lovesey (author)
- Publisher out of stock
Rose and Antonia had a good war. As WAAF plotters, they had all the excitement and independence of a difficult and dangerous job, and all the fun of being two women on an RAF base.
Peacetime is a disappointment. There is rationing, shortages, and nothing to do. Rosie's war-hero husband has turned into a brutal lout: Antonia, bored with her rich manufacturer, wants to move to America with her lover. Neither can afford a divorce. But what are plotters for, if not to plot? And Antonia's ruthless scheme would give them both what they want.
If Rose doesn't lose her nerve, they could get away with murder . . . .
