~~ Donna Andrews, award-winning author of The Penguin Who Knew Too Much
"The traditional British cozy is alive and well. Delicious. I was hooked from the first paragraph."
~~ Rhys Bowen, award-winning author of Her Royal Spyness
"Wicked, witty and full of treats, G.M. Malliet's debut novel has the sure touch of a classy crime writer. More, please!"
~~ Peter Lovesey, recipient of Lifetime Achievement Awards from the Crime Writers' Association and Malice Domestic
"Death of a Cozy Writer is a romp, a classic tale of family dysfunction in a moody and often humourous English country house setting. A worthy addition to the classic mystery tradition and the perfect companion to a cup of tea and a roaring fire, or a sunny deck chair. Relax and let G.M. Malliet introduce you to the redoubtable Detective Chief Inspector St. Just of the Cambridgeshire Constabulary. I'm sure we'll be hearing much more from him!"
~~ Louise Penny, author of the award-winning Armand Gamache series of murder mysteries
A house party in a Cambridgeshire mansion with the usual suspects, er, guests - a sly patriarch, grasping relatives, a butler, and a victim named Ruthven (what else?) - I haven't had so much fun since Anderson's "Affair of the Bloodstained Egg Cosy." Pass the tea and scones, break out the sherry, settle down in the library by the fire and enjoy Malliet's delightful tribute to the time-honored tradition of the English country house mystery.
~~ Marcia Talley, Agatha and Anthony award-winning author of DEAD MAN DANCING and six previous mysteries --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.
