Ellie Haskell, the beloved heroine of The Thin Woman, is stuck on a reality TV set. And, as the “thoroughly entertaining series” (Cosmopolitan) from Agatha Award nominee Dorothy Cannell continues, this cast is dying for their fifteen minutes.
 
A dark foggy night. A big spooky mansion. And a reality TV dating show? It’s not exactly the scene Ellie Haskell expects to find while stranded near the Yorkshire moors with her husband, Ben, and their plucky housekeeper, Mrs. Malloy—who promptly signs up as a contestant when she learns that the bachelorettes are competing for the affections of Lord Belfry himself. Then again, maybe Ellie shouldn’t be so surprised. Some women would kill to marry a lord . . . perhaps literally.
 
Even before the shooting starts, one would-be bride is knocked out of the game by a fatal car wreck. Then another is struck by Cupid’s arrow in an archery event. Ellie is beginning to suspect that murder is a grim inevitability on this doomed production. Somewhere in the dark passageways and hidden nooks of Mucklesfeld Manor, another life is about to be canceled—but Ellie will do anything to ensure that she and her friends make it back to reality unscathed.
 
Praise for She Shoots to Conquer
 
“Hilarious and always engaging sleuth Ellie Haskell is back—always a good thing for the health of British cozies.”—Booklist
 
“A delight . . . A satire on the gothic suspense novel, She Shoots to Conquer is also an engaging mystery, as the deft and talented Cannell proves again that hilarity and horror can meet.”—Kirkus Reviews
 
Praise for Dorothy Cannell and the Ellie Haskell series
 
“It is the absurd predicaments of her central characters that readers find themselves recalling, and Cannell is cunning at devising outlandish situations for them.”—Chicago Sun-Times
 
“Cannell is a master of subtle wit and humorous asides that lift her cozies to great heights. Before the influx of writers trying to out-humor Janet Evanovich, there was Dorothy Cannell. Long may she write!”—Library Journal
