In the 1920s in lower Manhattan, Olivia Brown lives life to the fullest. She enjoys living in the Village as a poet, loves to make love, and relishes assisting her neighbor, private investigator Harry Melville, with his cases.

Olivia travels to Croton up the Hudson from her home to attend a party that she feels will include literary peers and plenty of illegal booze. However, instead of a good time, the attendees argue, verbally ripping one another apart. The gala event totally collapses when Olivia discovers the frozen body of the hosts' nanny. Unable to leave the crime to law enforcement, Olivia cons Harry into assisting her with investigating the homicide.

MURDER ME NOW is a colorful historical fiction piece with a touch of a mystery to tie the vivid look at the literary set during the Roaring Twenties together. The story line is extremely entertaining for those readers who appreciate an opportunity to observe a bygone era. The who-done-it is well written and sub-genre fans will delight in its combination amateur sleuth cum private eye. Annette Meyers¿ second Brown mystery (see FREE LOVE) clearly belongs to the period that the plot lovingly describes to the audience.
