A comedic murder mystery. Startling satire. Cruel parody. A mocking look at the wealthy who pollute our culture. A famous writer dies, and the investigation uncovers a trove of the foibles and behaviours of the rich, famous, awful, and the awfully famous. Is it ironic? You decide!
"You can always tell a murder author by his fancy prose style."
#TRIGGERWARNING Contains comedy, satire, cruelty, death, mockery. A comedic murder mystery with little comedy and only one murder. A scathing examination of The Way We Live Now. 'Who Done It?' or more accurately, 'Why'd They Do It?' A hypothetical scenario about the potential death of a hypocrite. With jokes.
"The Meanest Comic Novel of this, or any, century." —Evelyn Waugh's Ghost
A bright youngish thing, on the cusp of failure when her teevee show ends, encounters a series of unfortunate incidents, ending with a short walk off a high building. Jump, Slip, or Push? The Detective, long coat whipping in the wind (even when there is no wind), interviews a cast of "only in New York" characters to solve the crime, or determine if a crime has been committed at all. At worst, there was and this is a Crime against Art.
