Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"A prophetic, hilarious, and suspenseful take on how the financial crisis turns one interior designer homicidal...Brenda Cullerton's new book is a stunning commentary on contemporary New York society."
The Daily Beast

"[A] hilarious and unsettling novel about class war. Upper East Siders beware...this killer wears Louboutins."  
Kathleen Massara, Flavorwire

"A deliciously smart, darkly comic novel"
New York Daily News

"Wickedly topical, with a fully developed and sympathetic protagonist, Cullerton’s debut novel abounds with juicy details about Charlotte’s exclusive world."
Kirkus Reviews

"Cullerton...has a real knack for satirical writing. Her supporting characters are a mostly fatuous bunch, but not so much that they stop feeling like real people; and Charlotte herself is a marvelous creation, a likably murderous woman whose solution to her intense frustration is, if not legal, at least effective."

“A brilliantly prophetic and modern tale of the macabre . . . A novel that roars across the intersection of Bret Easton Ellis’s American Psycho and Tom Wolfe’s The Bonfire of the Vanities.”
—James Wolcott, Vanity Fair columnist

“The book flies cinematically, riffs ferociously, and then floats in moments of poetic contemplation and longing. Swift, sensational, The Craigslist Murders reads scathingly and emotionally true. A tour de force!”
—Laura Jacobs, author of Women About Town and The Bird Catcher

Library Journal
In her thirties, single, beautiful, and stylish Charlotte Wolfe is not your ordinary interior designer. Her clientele consists entirely of the upper echelon of Manhattan's Upper East Side. She satisfies their pre-financial crisis need for envy-inducing extravagances by dealing exclusively with sumptuous materials, rare fixtures, high-end appliances, and custom-milled or costly antique furniture. Most unusual, however, is her secondary calling as a serial murderer of a specific type of woman whom Charlotte finds all too appallingly common among the stupendously rich: the petty, rancorous, clueless, narcissistic trophy wife. She considers them monsters and believes her role to be executioner. Rather than bite the hands that feed her, however, Charlotte saves her fireplace poker for those who aim to sell their most pretentious possessions via Craigslist. The mystery in this tale of multiple murders is not who did it, but why and whether this intelligent, gifted culprit will be exposed. VERDICT This suspenseful romp for mystery lovers offers an informed peek inside the magnificent homes and lives of New York socialites, illuminating instruction on the finer things of life, and an absorbing character study of a darkly engaging murderess.—Sheila Riley, Smithsonian Inst. Libs., Washington, DC
