Product description


Candas Jane Dorsey's terrific mysteries are what would happen if Raymond Chandler and Frank N. Furter collaborated on cozies and the heroine were a pansexual private detective with heart, smarts, and a T-shirt saying MASCARA IS THE NEW NOIR. There's female bonding, sex (lots of it), and a cat or two. You'll scream with laughter, you'll checkmark phrases. And then, if you're a nice person and love your friends, you'll put these books in their hands and insist they read them too." -- Sarah Smith, author of the New York Times Notable Book THE VANISHED CHILD

A little Hammett, a little Hiaasen, a little Lot 49, this is the first book in a series that demands to be read with writerly intention... The author seeks to shake the reader out of submission and into a clearer vision and examination of the underpinnings of the genre - the real crime and grime and meanness of the streets on which it's set. The laughs are thrown in for free -- Janice MacDonald, author of the Randy Craig Mystery series

[An] exceptional series launch from SF author Dorsey, a droll mix of mystery and metafiction...Fans of unconventional mysteries will be richly rewarded ― Publishers Weekly, starred review

Smart and razor-sharp, with unforgettable characters and a plot that won't let you go until the last page. You're going to love it! -- E.C. Bell, author of the Marie Jenner Mystery Series

The Adventures of Isabel is a winner! The narrator's voice alone is worth your time - which will be brief. It's a page-turner -- S.J. Rozan, author of PAPER SON --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
