What do bestselling writers Sue Grafton, Danielle Steel, Curtis Sittenfeld ("Prep") and Tom Clancy all have in common? They've all been murdered in a manner both gruesome and appropriate to their style. An extremely paranoid Steven King is convinced that he will be the next victim, and so he must leave his heavily-barricaded fortress in Bangor, Maine, to discover" Who's Killing the Great Writers of America?" This hilarious send-up of the world of publishing by the author of "Me and Orson Welles" and "The Cat Who Killed Lilian Jackson Braun" takes us from Venice to Paris to Maine and offers cameo appearances by Steve Martin, Gerard Depardieu, plus a few surprises.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I have never been more annoyed with a reader or bored with such a nonsensical story. Johnson fumbles words and harrasses with singing. I thought satires were supposed to be funny or at least witty. Kaplow's caricatures of famous writers are child - like and unimaginative.
