 About the Book 

A retired Marine is found planted in his own flower bed, dressed in death as a garden gnome. The murder exposes the seedy side of suburbia as Veronica Sparrow, a bored twenty-something cynic, and her identical twin uncover a truly deranged killerMoreA retired Marine is found planted in his own flower bed, dressed in death as a garden gnome. The murder exposes the seedy side of suburbia as Veronica Sparrow, a bored twenty-something cynic, and her identical twin uncover a truly deranged killer hidden in the midst of the impeccably manicured lawns on Quail Court. Neighbors become suspects: the married male professor who slept with the dead manas son, the enraged father of the girl to whom the victim gave diet pills, and the high-school loner, neighborhood kleptomaniac, who pilfers incriminating evidence. A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood unearths more secrets than a naked body in front of a mirror. A kinship between order and chaos must be embraced to discover the truth or become the next target.
