Death of Diff Woman

Carole Berry, Author Berkley Publishing Group $18.95 (265p) ISBN 978-0-425-14356-8
Strapped for cash, Bonnie Indermill, the eternal temp, signs on to help a Wall Street law firm relocate to its new offices and ends up in the center of a mediocre mystery. Bonnie, a walking target for everything that goes awry on the move, just manages to cope with the long work days, her useless boss and a strange man with a ''hideous laugh'' who is lurking around the new building. And then she meets Kate Hamilton, termagant attorney. Kate had complaints aplenty even before the disappearance of a carton of her confidential papers triggers the venting of her considerable anger on Bonnie and the movers, particularly Billy Finkelstein and his attractive father, Sam (to whom Bonnie takes a shine). Though otherwise likable, Bonnie will seem willfully obtuse to those who will have no problem guessing (before the murder) who the victim will be, where the body will be found, or (well before the finale) who the villain is. Berry's crime thriller, Nightmare Point, appeared last year. (Dec.)
