Publisher's Summary

In honor of Agatha Christie's 100th birthday, mystery bookstore owner Annie Laurance Darling plans a week-long celebration of mystery, treasure hunts, title clues, and Christie trivia. Yet even as the champagne is chilling and the happy guests begin arriving on Broward's Rock Island, Annie feels a niggling sense of doom. But the last thing she or her guests expect is that the scheduled fun and mayhem will include a real-life murder.

The unexpected arrival of Neil Bledsoe, the most despised book critic in America, was sure to raise a few hackles. An advocate of hard-boiled detection and gory true crime, Bledsoe drops a bombshell on the devoted Christie assemblage: He's penning a scurrilous biography of the grand dame of suspense herself. Before the first title clue is solved, no less than two attempts are made on Bledsoe's life. Now Annie and her unflappable husband, Max Darling, find themselves trying to stop a murder in the making - only the first corpse isn't the one they're expecting...and it isn't the last.

    "A Cosy Armchair-Full"

    This amusing mystery has just enough bite to keep it from being too cosy. In fact, the plot revolves around the war between the cosy mystery, as represented by the redoubtable Agatha Christie and the hardboiled, but not challenging, i.e. Mickey Spillane. It's a frolic through Dame Agatha's works, including some lesser known surprises, at a convention lauding her. The characters, although not deep, are also not stereotyped, with the exception of the heroine's somewhat boringly perfect husband. But ignore Max--all too easy to do--and you'll enjoy this frothy, but not fluffy novel. Okay, I guessed the killer half-way through the book, but still had fun. And who doesn't enjoy Christie Redux?
