Overview

Pushover is the fifth in the critically acclaimed Iris Thorne mystery series by Los Angeles Times bestseller Dianne Emley, now available for the first time as an e-book and trade paperback.

Sexy and savvy Iris Thorne has made it to the big corner office of the glittering yet cutthroat Los Angeles investment firm, McKinney Alitzer. She’s looking ahead to a bright future with new boyfriend Garland Hughes when the past comes calling. Iris’s ex-fiancé Todd Fillinger surfaces after many years and invites Iris to participate in a lucrative new venture in the wild and woolly emerging Russian market--red-hot yet dangerous in the 1990s following the collapse of the Soviet Union. Iris is intrigued, not least because she has some personal business still to settle with Todd. But only hours after she’s been met by Todd in Moscow, he’s gunned down in front of her.

Horrified, Iris manages to return at least physically unscathed to the comforting familiarity of her L.A. beachfront bungalow and Garland’s arms. She’s brought with her Todd’s ashes which she’s agreed to deliver to his devastated sister. Only then does she learn that L.A. can be even more terrifying than Moscow and that the guilt-laden legacy of Todd Fillinger could destroy her.

Editorial Reviews

Manchester Evening News (UK) - Val McDermid
Sharp and stylish. . . a multistranded complex of lies, betrayal, and desperation. . . that strips bare the politics of relationships. Clever and cool.
Los Angeles Times Book Review - Charles Champlin
Dianne Emley has created a clever mystery... Emley has portrayed with fine, cold, malicious glee a brokerage firm that seems to operate about one floor above the bucket shop... As at Scott Turow's Chicago law firm, you do wonder what they'll say at the water cooler.
Cleveland Plain Dealer - Les Roberts
There’s action to spare here. . . . [Emley’s] uncanny knack for using the perfect word to fit the occasion gives the novel a special quality, and her characters are complex and disturbing. . . . There is an almost erotic lushness to her writing…
