A CAST OF VULTURES by Judith Flanders / Mystery / Released March 1, 2017 by Minotaur Books
Normally sharp-witted, book editor Sam Clair stumbles through a post-book launch party morning with the hangover to end all hangovers. But before the Ibuprofen has even kicked in, she finds herself entangled in an elaborate saga of missing neighbors, suspected arson and an odd, unidentified body.
By the time the grisly news breaks that the fire has claimed another victim, Sam is already hot in pursuit. Armed once again with her biting commentary, her boyfriend Inspector Jake Filed, and her stalwart Goth assistant, Sam must track down the murderer and face a pair of Thugs-‘R’-Us in this uproariously funny and fast-paced mystery.
