Hallie Ephron's new How-To book is one of the best books on writing mysteries that I've ever read. Ephron, one half of the best-selling mystery duo G.H. Ephron, knows exactly how to construct interesting, twisty, and effective plots and characters, and she doesn't hesitate to divulge her secrets. The book is divided into four sections: Planning, Writing, Revising, and Selling Your Mystery Novel. She provides apt examples, excellent charts, and interactive exercises that will help both the neophyte and the long-time practitioner. She includes an appendix of resources as well. As SJ Rozan writes in her introduction: 'The map in this book will make the process of writing your novel controllable, understandable, and as close to fun as it gets. You'll still have to do the work this book won't write your book. But it will show you what work to do, so you can plan, structure, and write. And revise, rework, and rewrite. It will show you how to start, what to do when you're mired in the middle, and how to come to a triumphant finish. And, if you're still standing, it will help you market it to an agent an editor so that your book can end up, finally, in the hands of those most elusive, legendary, and desirable inhabitants of this loony Land: readers.' If you've ever wanted to write mysteries or if you seek merely to improve your mystery-writing craft and technique, this book will help you get there. Run right out and get this one. I can't recommend it highly enough.

With Hallie Ephron, you get wise mentor, a compassionate and savvy best friend, and a secret weapon: insight and instruction from a successful pro and her impressive posse of mystery-author stars. It¿s like having your own personal writing teacher and coach--every question you have is answered, as well as the ones you wouldn¿t know to ask. Fun to read, innovatively and imaginatively organized, and as interactive as the reader chooses to make it, this is sure to become a keep-on-your-desk classic, and a much-used, well-worn reference book. This is definitely not just for newbies-¿but word to the wise: Mystery-writer wannabes will want to be the first to read it¿-so their competitors in this demanding market won¿t get their hands on the good stuff first.
