Myra Rutledge and the fun-loving members of her vigilante group, which operates out of Myra's estate near Washington, D.C., deliver more creative punishment to miscreants who escape the traditional legal system in the sixth entry in bestseller Michael's lighthearted Sisterhood series (Sweet Revenge, etc.). When stock broker Alexis Thorn spends a year in prison for defrauding elderly investors, a crime actually committed by her greedy bosses, the Sisterhood plots revenge with the assistance of Myra's childhood pal, heiress Anna Ryland de Silva, and DA Jack Emery, Myra's lawyer daughter Nikki's boyfriend. Reporters Maggie Spritzer and Ted Robinson don't make their job any easier after the pair break into Nikki's office and uncover evidence that could embarrass the Sisterhood. Readers looking for an updated Charlie's Angels in "wild women" mode will be most satisfied. (Oct.)

In the sixth installment of Michaels' Revenge of the Sisterhood series, our group of vigilante ladies is finally giving Alexis her turn at justice. Each of the women have been let down by the criminal justice system, so they seek to balance the scales for each other. Alexis worked at a brokerage firm whose partners framed her for the theft of money from her accounts. Found guilty, she was sent to prison for a year. Now it's time for a little payback. The sisterhood's scheme is relatively simple, but there's an extra fillip at the end that puts its vengeance over the top. Add to that a pair of reporters who have almost figured out who they are, and the ladies are in real danger of being exposed. Fans of the series will relish the latest episode because it's as full of daring and rough justice as all the rest. Maria Hatton
