Overview

Kate Jasper, Marin County, California’s own organically grown amateur sleuth, returns in this ninth mystery in the series.

Kate and her sweetie visit Ivan Nakagawa’s bookstore for an author signing in Death Hits the Fan. The event features three authors and only a few more audience members, but the small audience does not stop Yvette Cassell from reading on and on as fellow author S. X. (Shayla) Greenfree’s eyelids droop and she slumps forward. Kate is shocked by Shayla’s novel approach to boredom. But it turns out that Shayla is not just dozing, she is dead. Is the murderer’s unique signature the bracelet that Shayla snapped on before falling over? The police read an accusation into Shayla’s last utterance of “Kate, I . . . ” before Shayla slumped. But Kate did not even know Shayla. Or did she? The handwriting is on the wall. Can Kate read it before the murderer plots a sequel?

Editorial Reviews

Jeri Wright
The mystery was satisfactorybut there just wasn't that much here to get my teeth into. It isn't so much anything I disliked that make me suggest second thoughts about reading this onebut rather the absence of anything to make it compelling. —The Mystery Reader.com

Meet the Author

Jaqueline “Jaki” Girdner is a lifelong reader from a family of readers and writers. While working her way through world literature, children’s literature, science fiction, and other genres, she earned a degree in psychology, practiced tai chi, and eventually became a lawyer. While in law school, she read her way through Agatha Christie, Dorothy L. Sayers, Ngaio Marsh, and John Dickson Carr. For a short time, she worked for a criminal law firm, then set up shop on her own as a family law attorney and eventually started a greeting card company called Jest Cards, which didn’t make her much money but finally led her to create Kate Jasper, who owned a gag gift company called Jest Gifts and practiced tai chi. Kate Jasper stumbled over dead bodies, and Jaki sold her first mystery novel. And then eleven more. She has also written, as Claire Daniels, about Cally Lazar, a recovering attorney who does “cane-fu” and has an energetic healing practice.

Girdner’s twelve Kate Jasper mysteries have been reissued. Jaki is now writing a mainstream romantic comedy. You can find out lots more about Jaki Girdner at www.jakigirdner.com.
