    • Abstract:
      Summary: "There was every possibility that I was dead, and my brain hadn't got the memo. Or maybe it was that I wished I were dead. On reflection, that was more likely. Normally sharp-witted, book editor Sam Clair stumbles through a post-launch party morning with the hangover to end all hangovers. But before the Nurofen has even kicked in, she finds herself entangled in an elaborate saga of missing neighbors, suspected arson and an odd, unidentified body. By the time the grizzly news breaks that the fire has claimed another victim, Sam is already hot in pursuit. Armed once again with her biting commentary, her boyfriend Inspector Jake Field, and her stalwart Goth assistant, Sam must track down the murderer and face a pair from Thugs 'R' Us in this uproariously funny and fast-paced mystery in this critically acclaimed series from New York Times bestseller Judith Flanders"-- Provided by publisher.

LJ Reviews 2016 September #2

New York Times best-selling social historian Flanders, who launched her mystery-writing career with the LibraryReads pick A Murder of Magpies, brings back book editor and amateur sleuth Sam Clair. Her new case involves arson, missing neighbors, and an unidentified body.. Copyright 2016 Library Journal.

PW Reviews 2016 November #3

Near the start of Flanders's engaging if convoluted third novel featuring London book editor Samantha Clair (after 2016's A Bed of Scorpions), Sam agrees to help an elderly friend, Viv, locate a missing neighbor of Viv's, Dennis Harefield. Days after she and Viv break into Dennis's flat, his body is discovered in an abandoned building that caught fire and was home to a group of squatters. When the police accuse the dead man of arson and drug dealing, Sam resolves to help Viv prove his innocence, disregarding the concerns of her boyfriend, police detective Jake Field. Claire's quest soon puts her in jeopardy. Flanders adroitly avoids chick-lit clichés, opting for nuanced, multidimensional characters, including Sam's high-powered attorney mother, Helena, and her reclusive upstairs neighbor, Mr. Rudiger. Insights into the fraught culture of publishing, where editors balance publicity demands with interference by corporate management consultants who refer to books as "product," lend interest. Readers will look forward to seeing more of smart, successful, self-deprecating Sam. Agent: George Lucas, Inkwell Management. (Feb.) Copyright 2016 Publisher Weekly.
