A Good Knife's Work

Sheila York, Author . Five Star $25.95 (312p) ISBN 978-1-59414-841-5

Set in New York City in 1946, York's snappy second Lauren Atwill puzzler (after 2003's Starstruck Dead ) will appeal to readers nostalgic for the golden age of radio. Lauren, a Hollywood screenwriter, and PI Peter Winslow, her gorgeous bodyguard and lover, flee California for New York, where they become involved in investigating the murder of Hazel Keane, the producer of Adam Drake, for Hire , a popular radio mystery series. Lauren goes undercover as a writer for the show under a pseudonym, while the victim's insurance company hires Peter. They soon uncover a host of suspects, including Hazel's estranged director husband, her lover, and her two brothers. Filled with fascinating details about old-time radio production, this crime caper is as much fun as a good game of Clue. (Jan.)
