The Revenge of the Radioactive Lady by Elizabeth Stuckey-French

Leave a comment

Fifty years ago, Dr. Wilson Spriggs gave Marylou Ahearn a radioactive cocktail. And now, she’s going to kill him.

The cocktail was part of a secret governmental study, and it was given to Marylou and many others, without their consent. They were told that it was a vitamin drink, and that it was good for them. Unfortunately, there were some tragic results.

Marylou has never forgiven Dr. Spriggs, who has now retired to Florida. Once Marylou finds out where he and his family live, she changes her name, moves down to Tallahassee, and begins to insinuate herself into the family’s life. Her plan is more complicated to execute than she’d thought it would be, and things don’t turn out quite the way she’d planned.

Full of dark humor, this one will definitely make you laugh, and probably tug at a few heart-strings too.
