Overview

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

A Trailer Park Mystery (#1)

Kountry Kitchen Southern cooking recipes included!

Wanda Nell Cullpepper's hectic life isn't getting any easier. When she returns home from a long day of double shifts at her day job waitressing at the Kountry Kitchen diner and her night shifts at the Budget Mart, the last person she wants to see is her no-account ex-husband, Bobby Ray, talking big and flashing cash.

Just when she thinks things can't get worse, Wanda Nell wakes up the next day to find Bobby Ray just plain dead-killed with her favorite pink flamingo yard ornament! But things go from bad to worse: now the sheriff is eyeing Wanda Nell as the primary suspect...and the real murderers have her in their sights. But she's come this far on wits and grits, so with the help of her trusty best friend, Wanda Nell sets out to fight back and catch the real culprits-or lose her life!

"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.
