STABBING STEPHANIE

Literary agent Jane Stuart has finally decided to crawl out from under her pile of manuscripts to take a muchneeded vacation when she gets a surprise call from her late husband’s cousin, Stephanie, asking if she can stay for a few days. Jane reluctantly agrees—after all, it is Thanksgiving, and Stephanie is taking an editor’s job at a hot new publishing house.

But no sooner has Stephanie unpacked her file folders than it becomes clear that something rotten is going on in the pedigreed halls of Carson & Hart, Inc. And when Stephanie is found in a Dumpster with a knife in her back, Jane goes undercover at the company to find the killer. Yet playing the part of an editor isn’t easy for Jane, especially when the list of murder suspects is growing faster than the stack of submissions on her overburdened desk…

“Another delightful cozy with a congenial cast of diverse characters, a realistic heroine with a vivid sense of humor and a loveable cat.”—Publishers Weekly

“A great book…Marshall has all the right tricks up his sleeve to keep his readers interested.”

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
In another delightful cozy (after 2000's Hanging Hannah), Jane Stuart and her tortoiseshell cat, Winky, are back just in time for a light spring read. After three years of adjusting to her husband Kenneth's death, raising son Nick as a single mom, and building her literary agency, Jane has finally decided to take a vacation. The anticipatory joy of thinking about white sandy beaches is cut short by the arrival of Kenneth's arrogant and snobbish cousin, Stephanie, who announces that she's moving to Jane's small town of Shady Hills, N.J., to work for her Wellesley roommate, Faith Carson. Faith and her husband, Gavin Hart, have relocated their publishing company to Shady Hills. The illustrious Faith, whose fairy-tale first marriage to Prince Ravi of Ananda ended with his tragic assassination, is the talk of the town. Stephanie, however, suspecting something is amiss at Carson and Hart, asks Jane to go undercover to see what she can find out. Jane unearths more than she bargains for as events in Shady Hills escalate from burglary to murder, and Stephanie becomes one of the victims. With the support of her boyfriend, police inspector Stanley Greenberg, and some help from Winky, Jane gets some answers in a startling conclusion. In addition to a congenial cast of diverse characters, a realistic heroine with a vivid sense of humor and a lovable cat, Marshall offers provocative insights into the world of literary agents and vanity publishing.

    dramatic yet homespun mystery

    The past three years have been very stressful for Jane Stuart. Her husband died in a car accident and she raises her son by herself. Jane works at a literary agency where a nervous breakdown is the norm. Her grief has now somewhat abated and she sees a police officer romantically, but nevertheless Jane needs a vacation. <P> Before deciding where she wants to go, her late spouse's cousin Stephanie calls to inform her she is moving to Shady hills, New Jersey and would appreciate if she can stay with Jane until she finds a place of her own. Jane cannot say refuse. Stephanie works at the newly relocated Carson & Hart, Inc. whose owner Faith Hart is a Grace Kelly like celebrity. Stephanie believes something is not right on her job and Jane goes undercover to find out what it is not realizing the danger she will soon face. <P> The heroine of STABBING STEPHANIE lives a peripatetic lifestyle that leaves the reader exhausted trying to keep up with her. The audience also admires her courage and sense of responsibility as she interacts with her son and the family cat Winky. Evan Marshal, a literary agent, adds a touch of authenticity to this dramatic yet homespun mystery. <P>Harriet Klausner
