"[In] her superior second cozy, Malliet's satirical take on the mystery scene is spot-on." (Publishers Weekly)
"Malliet excels at stylish writing very reminiscent of the golden age of British mysteries. A real find for old-school mystery fans." (Booklist)
"An absolutely delicious skewering of the world of mystery publishing and its none-too-savory denizens, Death and the Lit Chick is even wittier and more skillfully constructed than her Agatha Award-winning Death of a Cozy Writer." (Denver Post)
Second in the series, do not read out of order.
It occurred to me that these books are re-do's of Lord Peter Wimsey books, at least in terms of overall theme. I was left with the VERY strong impression that some kind of computer program either wrote this book or aided in the writing. It's okay. I love Davina Porter and will listen to her narrate just about anything. Without her, this is not worth the credit. If you love her, it is.
I was enjoying this book until the last hour - the murder was cleverly solved by the detective largely using clues we were never privy to. I at least would like to try and solve a mystery for myself....
