Advance Praise

Praise for previous volume in the series, Stop Press Murder: An intellectual whodunit, featuring well thought out characters with wit and panache to equal Agatha Christie. I highly recommend this book as it has made me laugh and puzzle over the end result. It has more plot twists than DNA but keeps the reader gripped at every turn. I can't say anything more than read it, read it, read it!

Featured Reviews

I really do enjoy most of Peter Bartram books, especially these investigative journalist stories - they remind me so much of the era of pulp fiction. The characters are just so great, and the stories really have you at the edge of your seat following the twists and turns of the mystery. Love Tammy and her colloquialism, and as for Henrietta and the Clipping Cousins, they just make me laugh.
