This is the third of the OZARKS mysteries; Joan Hess's very popular series featuring female Chief of Police, Arly Hanks. This time a woman tells Arly that some fine citizens of Maggody discriminate on the basis of sex. Arly says she can't much help that, if it is true. Soon, all Maggody is in another muddle as women meet secretly to discuss..... what next? Then the bank goes up in flames with someone inside. Witchcraft or who done it? Chief Arly discriminates against no one... and gets her person.

display_description A hilarious police procedural set in the strangest town in the Ozarks, where whip-smart sheriff Arly Hanks does everything she can to keep the peace. Nothing ever happens in Maggody, Arkansas, population 755. Aside from handling the occasional barroom brawl or exploding still, Chief of Police Arly Hanks spends her days sipping coffee and squashing flies. She returned to Maggody two years ago, licking her wounds after a bad Manhattan divorce, and she fell backward into the role of sheriff. From Hizzoner the Moron-also know as Jim Bob Buchanon, the pettily corrupt mayor-to Ruby Bee Hanks-Arly's mother and the town's foremost gossip-the people of Maggody are all crazy in their own ways, and that craziness is about to turn deadly. When Joanna Mae Nookim returns to work after giving birth, the bank manager bumps her down to minimum wage as punishment for taking time off. It's outrageous, but there's nothing Arly can do. But when the bank burns to the ground and the head teller is found dead, Maggody threatens to burst into an all-out revolution for the sake of women's rights. Fans of comic mysteries have known for years that no small town is quite like Maggody. With its wild cast of characters and its no-nonsense female detective, Much Ado in Maggody is evidence of master of cozy mysteries Joan Hess at her best. Much Ado in Maggody is the 3rd book in the Arly Hanks Mysteries, but you may enjoy reading the series in any order.
