Overview

A Cast of Killers is the second in the Hubbert & Lil mystery series Katy Munger, writing as Gallagher Gray. Auntie Lil and T.S. enter the world of Hell's Kitchen, a Times Square neighborhood where Broadway's chorus girls of yesteryear now stand in lines at local soup kitchens, make-up perfectly in place, hoping to be fed. When one of these former beauties is poisoned while eating Auntie Lil's famous chili, Auntie Lil becomes obsessed with finding out the long-forgotten real name behind the victim's stage identity so the poor woman can be given a proper burial. This search leads Auntie Lil and T.S. into a murder investigation and the world of NYC runaways, a world that neither of them would particularly like to admit even exists.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
“With a fond eye for the eccentric, Gray gives the streets of Hell's Kitchen the air of a gritty English village.”
San Francisco Chronicle
“Deftly plotted and well-paced ... Two wonderful sleuths make their debut”
The Drood Review of Mystery
“Weaves a wondrous web of work relationships shrouded by ghosts of a long-ago scandal... In the classic British cozy tradition right down to the body with the antique dagger in its chest."
The Virginian-Pilot & The Ledger-Star
“Gray has the rare talent of being able to combine humor with sensitivity, and high comedy with realistic portrayals of genuine people.”
