Overview

With their very first mystery, Missing Marlene, widowed literary agent Jane Stuart and her tortoiseshell cat, Winky, elft mystery fans purring for more. Now the well-read detective duo is back, taking on Manhattan—and Shady Hills, New Jersey—on the hunt for a killer in disguise.

After her last brush with murder landed her in People magazine, Jane is eager to get back to a life of reading proposals, making deals, and throwing a birthday party for her son at a local inn. But before anyone can even say "make a wish," the body of a young woman is found hanging in the woods behind the inn.

No one seems to know the dead girl, or how she ended up in Shady Hills. The only clue is a page torn from People—the very article that pictures Jane, Winky, and about fifty other denizens of Jane's formerly peaceful town. Why was the victim so interested in Jane and her nieghbors, and did she have an unknown connection to them?

Jane knows the only way she can shake the gruesome murder out of hermind is to keep busy. So when editor Holly Griffin gives her the chance to represent Goddess, the world's hottest new pop star, Jane is grateful for the distraction...until Holly is found dead, stabbed with a letter opener. Although Jane can think of several people who would've liked to have seen the abrasive editor dead, she's shocked that murder has once again struck so close to home.

Determined to find the culprit of both murders, Jane, along with the help of Winky, start snooping around, uncovering a scandalous secret that someone will do anything to keep buried. It will take some keen investigating skills and getting inside the head of a cunning killer to solve this mystery—before the next victims are a certain literary agent and a cat on his ninth life...

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Three deaths, apparently unrelated, and a missing pop star slowly reveal their interconnections in Marshall's second mystery (after Missing Marlene) featuring the charming Jane Stuart, literary agent and "North Jersey's Miss Marple." A demi-celebrity as a result of a People magazine profile inspired by her first case, Jane finds her business picking up with the addition of her newest--and most demanding--client, the pop media sensation Goddess, billed in the press as "Madonna and then some." Meanwhile, Jane, a recent widow, has rediscovered romance with Shady Hills, N.J., police detective Stanley Greenberg. But events conspire to throw a pall over her good fortune. A grizzly discovery interrupts a birthday party for Jane's 10-year-old son hosted by her friend Louise, owner of the local inn. An unknown young woman is found hanging in the woods behind the inn-and the scanty clues point to Louise's husband as the killer. Later, an editor is stabbed to death at a book party for one of Jane's authors, and Goddess disappears. Even the wedding of Jane's assistant, Daniel, is an unhappy occasion when Daniel's father suffers a fatal heart attack. Driven by curiosity and compassion, Jane uncovers more than a few family secrets in her efforts to unravel the various mysteries. A rich, well-developed ensemble of neighbors and colleagues flesh out this fast-paced cozy. The satire on the New York publishing scene is fun, even if the ending is too tidy. Agent, Maureen Walters at Curtis Brown. (May) Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.|
Library Journal
Airy prose, domestic subplots, and an appealing heroine characterize this second title in the series. Literary agent Jane Stuart, living in bucolic Shady Hills, NJ, gained local fame when she investigated the disappearance of her son's nanny (Missing Marlene). This time, she helps solve the case of a woman found hanging in the woods behind the local inn. A filched quilt, a crazy-acting cat, a ghostly girl in the twilight, an incipient romance with a handsome detective, and a client's publishing party all contribute highlights to a deftly handled plot. For most collections. Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.\
