Murder Is the Deal of the Day (Gil and Claire Hunt Series #1)by Robert J. Randisi, Christine Matthews
"A fun, sweet mystery, suspenseful and so full of love between the characters I nearly cried while reading." Pat Tracy. Book dealer Gil Hunt and his wife Claire stumble onto one crime after another in this charming series. A murdered author, a serial killer with a grudge against TV shopping, a battle of voodoo priestesses . . . and death waiting for our amateur sleuths at every turn. "Surprising and exciting conclusion . . . Gil and Clair are fun. Let's hope we see them again." Booklist
Meet the Author
Robert J. Randisi's 2011 novel for Perfect Crime, The End of Brooklyn, won plaudits in a Booklist starred review as "dark, brooding and thoroughly compelling." The six-volume Miles Jacoby series, reissued in 2012, brought back the prize-fighter PI in novels as infused with the harmonies of New York as a Canarsie cab driver. "If [it] moved any faster you'd have to nail it down to read it," said Elmore Leonard of the first Jacoby book. Described by Booklist as "the last of the pulp writers," Randisi has published in the western, mystery, horror, science fiction and men's adventure genres, and he has been honored by the Private Eye Writers of America with a Lifetime Achievement Award.
