Overview

From the New York Times bestselling author of A Cat in the Stacks mystery series, a novel about a single mom, wits, grits, double shifts... and murder!

A Trailer Park Mystery (#3)

Kountry Kitchen Southern cooking recipes included!

During a night shift waitressing at the Kountry Kitchen, Wanda Nell Culpepper sees a shocking customer in her section of the diner-her long-lost brother, Rusty. Wanda and Rusty haven't talked since their dear mama passed on, and Wanda thinks it's high-time for a reconciliation. But Rusty has his own reasons for coming back to their small hometown... and it seems stirring up trouble is one of them!

Then a man is found murdered-the same man who was involved in a highly visible argument with Rusty just hours before he was killed! And Rusty is nowhere to be found...

But Wanda Nell knows her baby brother couldn't kill anyone. So she's got to find Rusty and the real killer before the mess starts smelling like weeks-old hush puppies!

Wanda Nell and her shotgun-toting buddy Mayrene are wonderful people to get to know. A down-home treat!-#1 New York Times bestseller, Charlaine Harris

FLAMINGO FATALE is the Southern cozy at its best.-Lane Wright, revewingtheevidence.com

As down-home and appealing as fried green tomatoes, grits, and sweet tea. Heroine Wanda Nell Culpepper is a steel magnolia to cherish.- Carolyn Hart

About the Author

Miranda James is the pseudonym of Dean James, a seventh-generation Mississippian recently returned home after over thirty years in Texas. A mystery fan since the age of ten, he wrote his first novel at the ripe old age of twelve. The only copy of The Mystery of the Willow Key vanished years ago, but since it was highly derivative of the Nancy Drew and Trixie Belden mystery series, that's probably a good thing.

Currently a librarian, Dean has published articles on topics in library science, the history of science/medicine, and mystery fiction. His first book, with fellow librarian Jean Swanson, was By a Woman's Hand and won an Agatha Award. Dean and Jean collaborated on Killer Books and The Dick Francis Companion. In all he has co-authored or co-edited six works of mystery reference and one short story anthology.

He has published more than eighteen novels, writing under his own name, Jimmie Ruth Evans, and as Honor Hartman. He's best known as Miranda James, for his New York Times bestselling Cat in the Stacks series, which features a librarian, Charlie Harris and his charming, partner-in-crime solving cat, Diesel. The books include Murder Past Due, Classified as Murder, File M for Murder, Out of Circulation, The Silence of the Library, Arsenic and Old Books, No Cats Allowed, Twelve Angry Librarians and the upcoming Claws for Concern.

Dean lives with two young cats, thousands of books, and thinks frequently about killing people - but only in the pages of fiction.
