Twin sisters Kerry and Terry McAfee are well on their way to becoming Los Angeles's most notorious PIs. With their bright red hair, canine sidekicks, and preferred mode of transportation--a hot-pink Harley--the girls are quickly getting a reputation for more than just sleuthing skills. So after nabbing the Butcher of Beverly Hills, they decide to take some time off and lay low for a while.
But then the girls' rich Aunt Reba calls with the news that she's found a decapitated body in her new Malibu beach house. Kerry insists that they call the police--partly because she hopes to catch a glimpse of her former flame, the hunky Detective John Boatwright. But no sooner do the cops begin investigating than Reba and the girls are shocked by the arrival of their Cousin Robert--carrying a blond-haired head in a mesh bag with no memory of where he's been.
Now it's up to the twins to find the real killer, as Reba and Robert face the prospect of life behind bars. As they search for clues, Kerry and Terry find themselves dealing with Mafia movie producers, wacko cultists, has-been actresses, and even visitors from outer space. With a razor-sharp wit that brilliantly brings to life L.A.'s most eccentric personalities, "The Mangler of Malibu Canyon" is fast-paced, sexy, and more fun than a ride down the Pacific Coast Highway.
