Alvirah Meehan wins the lottery, quits her job as a cleaning woman, and, along with her ex-plumber husband, Willy, accidentally begins a new career in crime-solving. In THE BODY IN THE CLOSET, Alvirah and Willy return from vacation to find a strangled woman in their bedroom closet. In PLUMBING FOR WILLY, poor Willy is kidnapped and held ransom for his lottery money. Frances Sternhagen's Queen's accent shapes the street-savvy Alvirah. Additionally, she creates a Willy perfectly compatible for Alvirah, a befuddled, loving, "salt-of-the-earth" darling. These short story plots are hilarious, clever, and performed with zany enthusiasm. B.J.P. (c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/MAY 02]
