Quotes & Awards

  • “Hilarious, big-hearted, clever, whip-smart, and devious. A truly wonderful crime novel by a brilliant writer…Judith Flanders has found that difficult, magical ground between humor and crime, where the death is never trivialized but the territory is hysterically pilloried. Brava!”

    Louise Penny, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Long Way Home

  • “Deadly funny. Judith Flanders’ wry take on publishing and murder should be on everybody’s wish list.”

    Donna Leon, New York Times bestselling author of By Its Cover

  • “Wickedly funny…the perfect storm of an entertaining read.”

    Times (London)

  • “From the first page you want Samantha Clair to be your new best friend…[Flanders] keeps the reader intrigued and laughing in equal measure.”

    Daily Mail (London)

  • “Wickedly clever and very funny…But like Bridget Jones, the obvious forerunner to her singleton London book editor/detective, Samantha Clair is not just played for laughs. There’s some deep social satire in her investigation into the disappearance of a gossip columnist. And, yes, lots of laughs.”

    Cleveland Plain Dealer

  • “Carefully mixed up and served, with a lot of humor…Here’s hoping Flanders has more to say and will be back with another book.”

    San Jose Mercury News

  • “The array of delightful and believable characters, as well as a neat turn at the end, will leave readers well satisfied and anticipating the next installment.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Susan Duerden gives voice to Flanders’ first-person protagonist, publishing editor Samantha Clair. With consistency and emotion she creates a high level of authenticity in the reactions of a woman unaccustomed to big-money book sales, let alone murder and mayhem. Duerden maintains a swift pace without hurrying, and her accents are distinct as Sam travels by foot, rail, and air throughout Europe, searching for clues…Duerden’s light tone works well for a book that is edgier than a traditional cozy, and she delivers the occasional profanity with spunk.”
