While cleaning a model home, she stumbles across a naked dead man with a donut over his genitals.

Soon she is caught up in the investigation. The Hispanic police officer in charge is alternately attracted to and annoyed by Maggie. Their sparring is punctuated with his pithy Mexican proverbs. Maggie comes to believe that the dead man was abusing his daughter — a credible motive for the girl’s boyfriend to commit the murder.

But as Maggie deals with memories of abuse in her own childhood, the list of possible killers grows. Complicating matters, Maggie’s ex rolls into town scheming to sell the family home out from under her with the help of an unscrupulous realtor, who is also a suspect in the murder. Then her sons are targeted by a danger Maggie never expected. DONUTS AND DOORKNOBS is a 66,000 word mystery with both humorous and dark subject matter — just as in real life, comedy sometimes appears in unlikely places. But, as George Bernard Shaw said, “Life does not cease to be funny when people die any more than it ceases to be serious when people laugh.”
