KIRKUS REVIEW

In the Terrarium, a gilded hospice for women saddled with extra pounds and lucre, blooms a most unlikely detective--Lexey Jane, sixtyish and crippled with arthritis, who has the bite of a snapping turtle. Among a cadre of Clare Boothe Lucean ""Women,"" Lexey Jane uncovers a Mafia operation and spots a homicidal scorpion as well as the bugs in the walls. A sleek but tenuous item for ladies who go for that single daffodil on the breakfast tray.
