A New York author may perish before she can publish, in this lively mystery from “a very funny lady” (Donna Andrews, New York Times–bestselling author of the Meg Langslow series).
With her books sporting other people’s names on their covers, ghostwriter Jake O’Hara works behind the scenes. But she never expected a séance at a Manhattan apartment to be part of her job.
Jake had signed on to secretly write for a grande dame of mystery fiction whose talent died before she did. The author’s East Side residence was impressive. But her entourage—from a Mrs. Danvers-like housekeeper to a lurking hypnotherapist—was creepy.
Still, it’s all in a day’s work—until a killer starts going after ghostwriters, and Jake suspects that she’s chillingly close to the culprit. Attending a séance may be one way to get help, but brilliant sleuthing would be better—before Jake’s next deadline turns out to be her own funeral, in this fun-filled mystery from an author who “keeps the plot airy and the characters outlandish” (South Florida Sun-Sentinel).
