THE GIRL ON THE BEST SELLER LIST

Gloria Whealdon resents them all, the whole town full of snooty hypocrites and self-righteous bores. She resents her husband Milo the most, the way he is always excusing her unsophistications to everyone. And then there’s her contemptible neighbors, Fern and Freddy Fulton, and their ugly daughter, Virginia. And Jay Mannerheim, so smug in his pretense of being a doctor when everyone knows he’s only a psychologist. And Min Stewart, always looking down on her as if she owned the town.

Gloria hates them until she can’t keep it in any longer. So she writes a novel, and exposes all their weaknesses, all their secrets. Population 12,360 is her revenge, and it becomes a best seller. Now the feeling is mutual—Gloria becomes a sensation, the town pariah. Is it any surprise that someone might want to get even?

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Not only is Packer an excellent writer but she's got an uncanny insight into human frailty and what makes seemingly ordinary people do very bad things." -Sarah Weinman, Confessions of an Idiosyncratic Mind

"Her probing accounts of the roots of crime are richly detailed snapshots of their times, unconventional, intensely readable, and devoid of heroes, villains, or pat solutions." --Jon L. Breen, Ellery Queen Mystery Magazine

"Packer is mostly known for her daring and controversial subject matter, but she was also a highly skilled writer who deserves more praise for her formal experimentation."-Cullen Gallagher, Pulp Serenade
