BOOK 2 IN THE AGATHA AWARD-WINNING SERIES

Starred Review"[In] her superior second cozy, Malliet's satirical take on the mystery scene is spot-on."
-Publishers Weekly (starred review)

Starred Review"Malliet excels at stylish writing very reminiscent of the golden age of British mysteries.  A real find for old-school mystery fans."
-Booklist (starred review)

"An absolutely delicious skewering of the world of mystery publishing and its none-too-savory denizens, Death and the Lit Chick is even wittier and more skillfully constructed than her Agatha Award-winning Death of a Cozy Writer." -Denver Post

Death and the Lit Chick is a finalist for the Anthony Award!

As the wildly successful darling of the publishing industry, chick lit mystery writer Kimberlee Kalder is the guest of honor at an exclusive writers' conference at Dalmorton Castle in Scotland. But jealousy and resentment are soon replaced with shock when Kimberlee is found dead at the bottom of the castle's bottle dungeon.

Who didn't want to see prima donna Kimberlee brutally extinguished like one of her ill-fated characters? It's up to Detective Chief Inspector St. Just to track down the true killer in a castle full of cagey mystery connoisseurs who live and breathe malicious murder and artful alibis . . .

 

Acclaim for the bestselling Death of a Cozy Writer, the first St. Just Mystery:

"[A] delightful homage to the great novels of Britain's Golden Age of Mysteries."
-Nancy Pearl, NPR commentator and author of Book Lust

Death of a Cozy Writer won the 2008 Agatha Award for Best First Novel and a silver medal for the IPPY awards in the category of Mystery/Suspense/Thriller.

Malliet's first novel Death of a Cozy Writer was chosen by Kirkus Reviews as a Best Book of 2008, nominated for a Left Coast Crime award (the Hawaii Five-O for best police procedural), short-listed for the Macavity Award for Best First Mystery, nominated for the Anthony Award for Best First Novel and was a finalist for the David G. Sasher, Sr. Award for Best Mystery Novel.
