Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
The second Paige Turner mystery (the bestselling Murderers Prefer Blondes) lives up to the promise of its heroine's name -- it's a fast, fun read.

Paige Turner is the only woman on the staff of a pulp magazine called Daring Detective. When she's not making coffee, rewriting stories, and proofreading, she writes her own features and indulges in a little investigative reporting. Her finely honed journalistic instincts tell her that the tale her late husband's army buddy has to share would make great copy. He's turned up out of the blue, with a heartrending request that she investigate the murder of his sister, Judy. The only clue he can provide is a fortune in diamonds that he found hidden in a box of oatmeal at his sister's apartment -- not the sort a thing a 19-year-old sales clerk normally has on her shopping list. It doesn't take Paige long to learn the identity of Judy's sugar daddy, but tracking the killer is a more difficult task, and a more dangerous one as well.

Amanda Matetsky provides a snappy, nostalgic look at Manhattan in the 1950s (complete with girdles, automats, and Beat poets), where death could be anybody's neighbor…and is not likely to wait for an invitation. Sue Stone

    Can Paige Turner find out who killed Judy Catcher without Detective Streeter finding out?

    Paige Turner is such a great character. It¿s 1954 in New York. Her late husband¿s army buddy, Terry Catcher, shows up and asks her to help him find out who murdered his sister, Judy. Plus he has diamonds he found when he was cleaning up her apartment. He doesn¿t know where they came from. When he showed them to the police, they wanted to keep them and he left when they weren¿t looking, with the diamonds, of course. Her new boyfriend, Detective Dan Street, has forbidden her from trying to help solve any more crimes. But, she can¿t turn down Terry. He had been close to Bob. So, she started doing some investigation. She had to be very careful when talking to Dan. She didn¿t want him to know. Her best friend and neighbor, Abby, helped her. So did Terry. But they had to keep Terry disguised so he wouldn¿t get arrested. They end up putting themselves in lots of danger, as they work to find out who killed Judy and why. Plus Christmas is fast approaching. Can Paige stay alive and in one piece for Christmas? I truly enjoy this series. Paige is such a likable character. Her relationship with Abby is wonderful. They are close friends, but they have their own lives, too. They¿re always there to help each other out when needed. Paige¿s new relationship with Dan is good. This book doesn¿t really expand on that. I¿m hoping that future books will. Sometimes I find it difficult to read when she is in her office. I hate the way her co-workers and boss treat her, but then I just remember that it is the 1950s. I think this book is written well. Especially getting that feeling of the 50s across. I tend to read books set in the now so this is a refreshing change. I highly recommend this book and the previous book, Murderers Prefer Blondes.

    Great 1950s mystery

    Mystery author and staff writer for Daring Detective magazine Paige Turner is at work when Terence Catcher calls and asks her to meet him. She hesitates until he tells her that her late husband Bob, who died in Korea, was his best friend and he wants to tell her about his last days. When Paige arrives at the restaurant, Terry tells her how Bob gave him confidence when he was scared and lifted his spirits when he was depressed. He then goes on to explain that his sister was murdered in her apartment and the police think it was a robbery gone wrong and closed the case.<P> Terry is positive his sister¿s death had to do with the diamond jewelry hidden in a container of oatmeal. Paige tries to wiggle out of helping him because she knows her police officer boyfriend would be furious with her. In the end, she agrees to find the killer because Terry was Bob¿s friend. Asking questions and following clues results in Paige almost dying when someone throws her on the train tracks; her apartment is broken into; and a viable suspect is killed. If that is not traumatic enough, the killer shoots Paige as the perpetrator demands the amateur sleuth tell where the diamonds are located.<P> December 1954 in Manhattan is a trip down memory lane and Amanda Matetsky captures the ambience of the era to perfection. The heroine¿s friend Abby makes a perfect crime-solving partner and some of their adventures are funny. Readers will thoroughly enjoy MURDER IS A GIRL¿S BEST FRIEND because of Paige, Abby, and 1950s New York.<P> Harriet Klausner
