"Murders multiply, but Jake proves up to the challenge. She sees through all the subterfuge and chicanery, solving a mind-boggling mystery in a burst of insight. All the characters are charmingly kooky and fun...We will be looking for more of Jake O'Hara." - TheMysteryReader.com
"[Wald] writes with a light touch." - New York Daily News
"The author keeps the plot airy and the characters outlandish." - South Florida Sun-Sentinel
A summer in the sun has sent ghostwriter Jake O'Hara out of her beach house and into the poorhouse. But help is about to come from an unlikely place. Acerbic book critic Richard Peter, voted the man most Americans love to hate, has written himself into a corner by accepting a whopping advance for a murder mystery he can't deliver. With his publisher on the warpath, Peter's willing to share a generous slice of the pie with a discreet wordsmith like Jake. The problem is, plenty of people would love to stab Peter in the back. And before long, one of them does-literally.
Now Manhattan's gutsiest ghostwriter is left ghosting for the dead-and chasing down clues to a murder that hasn't seen its final chapter.
