Overview

"Can You Hear Me Now” was originally published in 2009 in Two of the Deadliest: New Tales of Lust, Greed and Murder from Outstanding Women of Mystery edited by Elizabeth George. “Wicked little stories from old hands and relative neophytes,” the Seattle Times enthused. When asked about her contribution, Marcia said, “The story was inspired by a train trip I took to New York City where the guy sitting next to me was up to some funny business on his cell phone. By the time we reached Penn Station, I knew that he had to die, and exactly how to do it! Who doesn't like to see a rude cell phone user get his comeuppance?”

Marjorie Ann, the heroine of “Can You Hear Me Now?” also stars in two earlier stories, “With Love, Marjorie Ann” and “Driven to Distraction,” both available for the Nook.

Meet the Author

Marcia Talley is the author of ALL THINGS UNDYING and eight previous mystery novels featuring survivor and sleuth, Hannah Ives. Hannah's tenth adventure, A QUIET GRAVE, will be published in the summer of 2011 by Severn House.

Marcia Talley's Agatha and Anthony award-winning short stories have appeared in more than a dozen collections, including anthologies edited by New York Times best-selling authors Lawrence Block, Elizabeth George, Laura Lippman, and Anne Perry. They have been selected for inclusion in "The World's Finest Mystery and Crime Stories" and "The Deadly Bride and 21 of the Year's Finest Crime and Mystery Stories," edited by Ed Gorman and Martin H. Greenberg.

"My mother was an avid mystery fan, and a charter subscriber to Ellery Queen's Mystery magazine, so mysteries were always around the house," Marcia told a Philadelphia newspaper. "I was also a great fan of that old television show, 'Alfred Hitchcock Presents' and am grateful that although it appeared on TV late on a Sunday night (a school night--gasp!) I was allowed to stay up to watch it . . . I think my fondness for quirky endings can be traced back directly to Mr. Hitchcock."
