It was the publishing event of the season . . . until someone added murder to the menu.
When Quentin Hale, the ruthless new takeover boss of one of Australia’s oldest publishing houses, launched a glittering round of parties, interviews, and book signings to promote his top four authors, he unwittingly whipped up a recipe for disaster.
His jolly author of popular gardening books was actually a notorious lush. His successful authoress of muckraking biographies was a malicious troublemaker. And his queen of children’s books had once shared a disastrous love affair with his number-one novelist, a man teetering on the brink of yet another nervous breakdown.
The disgruntled staff could have warned Hale that the promotion was a deadly mistake, if he’d asked. But even they couldn’t have known just how deadly . . . until one famed author downed a fatal drink and a second soon went missing. Now it looks as if someone in this literary crew has been plotting murder all along. Can editor Kate Delaney and her friend Birdie catch the killer before he writes off his next victim?
