Overview

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.

Editorial Reviews

Mr. Tomato
If you like murder mysteries, the fast-paced action, witty conversation, and glib repartee of the flapper era, you will love Agata Stanford’s recreation of the atmosphere of the crowd at the Algonquin Round Table in the 1920s.
Terri Ann Armstrong
Dorothy Parker and the Regulars of the Algonquin Hotel Round Table are alive and well in Agata Stanford’s The Broadway Murders. Descriptions are fantastic in this who-dunnit as Stanford writes very colorfully. This is an adult’s picture book, too, which in the end turned out to be pretty terrific.

    Decent Mystery with enjoyable characters.

    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.

    Hilarious

    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.
