- LendMe LendMe™ Learn More
When a Broadway producer is found dead in his luxurious apartment it is believed he choked on a cherry tomato. That he was not murdered is a surprise to the denizens of the Great White Way. The first of Agata Stanford's Dorothy Parker Mystery Series, takes you on a pictorial tour as you romp through the Manhattan of 1924 alongside real-life characters, writer and wit, Dorothy Parker, her adorable Boston terrier named Woodrow Wilson, Robert Benchley and the newspaper men of the Algonquin Round Table. Step out of your Silver Ghost Rolls to go on a scavenger hunt with the Marx Brothers, do the rounds of speakeasies, attend Broadway's opening nights, dance at the Waldorf, and then pull up your chair at the Algonquin Hotel's famous daily luncheon and enjoy a tossed salad of bon mots, all while sleuthing about for clues to find a killer.

As a Dorothy Parker fan I had to check this out and it was well worth doing. Agata Stanford brings her characters (back) to life, and to those of us who had always wished we could eves drop on a session of The Algonquin Round-table she provides us with a fun and entertaining seat. I intend to read the rest of this series.
What a great trip back in time. This was a thoroughly entertaining book...enough to get me hooked on reading the rest of her series. I love this discovery!
This book is a hilarious romp thru New York during the Roaring 20's. I frequently found myself laughing out loud. A refreshing laugh fest with a fun, twisty mystery made for a thoroughly enjoyable read.
