Synopsis of book»

You know when you can have one those days at the office? You spill coffee on your keyboard, the finance director goes on an expenses rampage and then, before you know it, your favourite author is murdered. Don’t you just hate when that happens?

When Samantha Clair decides to publish journalist Kit Lovell’s tell-all book on the death of fashion-designer Rodrigo Alemán, she can scarcely imagine the dangers ahead. Cue a rollercoaster ride into the dark realms of fashion, money-laundering and murder, armed with nothing but her e-reader and her trusty stock of sarcasm…A pitch-perfect crime caper offers a witty, intelligent and entertaining glimpse into the publishing world.

Originally Called Writers' Block (A&B, March 2014)

'Pitch-perfect... Make sure you catch it'Books and Entertainment UK blog

'Flanders applies what she learned about the development of the mystery genre in the Victorian era to a smart, action-packed thriller set in modern-day London. Flanders has applied skillful writing to her knowledge of the London publishing scene, serving up an enjoyable, intricate page-turner'Booklist

'A sophisticated and smart mystery... the clever protagonist and entertaining workplace drama will entice readers to come back again for the next installment'RT Book Reviews

'Carefully mixed up and served with a lot of humour, as Sam has no illusions about her own - or any other - business. Here's hoping Flanders has more to say and will be back with another book'San Jose Muercury News

'There's some deep social satire in [Samantha Clair's] investigation into the disappearance of a gossip columnist. And yes, lots of laughs'Cleveland Plain Dealer
