The Gordonston Ladies Dog Walking Club by Duncan Whitehead
Available from Amazon and Barnes & Noble.
In the small southern city that gave birth to Flannery O’Connor, four southern belles whose delicate sensibilities have been terribly aggrieved, plot their revenge. Only, these “belles” have been “wrung” before, so a simple slap on the wrist and a “bless her heart” won’t do. These “belles” want blood.
The Gordonston Ladies Dog Walking Club – a satirical mystery novel, with elements of dark comedy, set in Savannah, Georgia has been hailed as “deliciously provocative”, “a gripping page turner” and “larger than life” by reviewers, media and readers alike. A modern comedy of manners, murder, and small town living with larger than life characters and a plot full of twists and surprises that keeps the reader guessing as to not only who the killer is that lurks in the tree lined neighborhood, but who is the intended victim
Leaning on O’Connor’s implacable sense of irony in this modern comedy of manners and murder the The Gordonston Ladies Dog Walking Club has been hailed as a unique mystery. As twists and turns lead the reader to a conclusion that they will not see coming and a sucker punch ending that will leave readers breathless, the Gordonston Ladies Dog Walking Club’s top priority remains the need to chastise the culprit who refuses to ‘scoop’ after his dog walking sessions in their treasured park.
You would be barking mad not give these “belles,” and their story, a ring.
