About the Book
This box set includes the first three books in the Jane Delaney humorous mystery series, featuring “Death Diva” Jane, her canine sidekick Sexy Beast, and a fun love-triangle subplot.
Book 1, Undertaking Irene: Jane Delaney does things her paying customers can’t do, don’t want to do, don’t want to be seen doing, and/or can’t bring themselves to do. To dead people. One thing she’s never had to do is investigate a murder—until now. But hey, when you’ve teamed up with a neurotic seven-pound poodle named Sexy Beast, how can you go wrong?
Book 2, Uprooting Ernie: Death Diva Jane is simply going about her business, which in this case means emptying a box of cheap rosé on a grave, when she and her furry sidekick, Sexy Beast, make a grisly discovery in the town cemetery. The victim was murdered 32 years ago, but memories are fresh and old grievances fresher as facts come to light and fingers start pointing.
Book 3, Perforating Pierre: Celebrity chef Pierre has everything going for him: drop-dead good looks, a popular restaurant, and a budding TV career. Unfortunately, the drop-dead part becomes all too real when he’s found marinating in his own juices. He’s been accused of cooking endangered species, but that couldn’t possibly have anything to do with his death. Could it?

“I hated to put it down… I will be looking to read other books by Pamela Burford!”
“Oh what a fun read!… There are some seriously superb ideas in this book! The names especially—I mean, how not to love Sexy Beast, the most adorable, lovable purse-sized doggie in the world, who just happens to be a millionaire, owning a mansion for his house. And his human, the Death Diva (aka Jane Delaney)? Come on, admit you’re smiling at this point… Yeah, lots of good chuckles, a bit of nail-biting suspense, a love triangle of sorts, or at least a good dilemma in the subject—all my faves!!!… Really entertaining book!!! Two thumbs up!”
— BookBug’s World
“The real delight of these books is the humour. I found myself laughing out loud at some of the things that Jane gets herself involved in… I loved this book and really hope that we don’t have to wait too long for the next one. I for one, can’t wait to see what Jane gets up to next.”
