A WATERSTONE’S INDIE BOOK OF THE MONTH AN UNLIKELY DETECTIVE TAKES ON A MISLEADING MURDER I was persuaded - provisionally, with confirmation to be given once I sobered up - to give up my career as a call girl and become a detective A SUNDAY TIMES CRIME CLUB PICK ‘Wild, daft, silly, laugh-out-loud, phrase-stealingly wonderful. . . Loved it’ Scene Magazine ‘Any fan of the wise-ass wise-cracking hardboiled detective will find much to enjoy. . . Kudos for updating this approach to the mysteries of human relationships’ Riva Lehrer, author of Golem Girl When a good friend's beloved graddaughter is murdered, an ambisexual downsized-social-worker and her cat, Bunnywit, are enlisted to help solve the case. For the police, Madeline is just one more dead sex worker - so it is down to our hero and her friends to uncover what happened. (Though not the cat. The cat mainly sulks.) With humour, sarcasm, and a good dose of irony, our protagonist swaggers through the mean streets tracking down leads to get the bad guy. But what at first seems like an average street killing is actually the surface of a grandiose and glittering set of criminal schemes that could mean far more trouble than she signed up for. . . A eye-wateringly comic mystery caper, perfect for fans of Carl Hiaasen, Andrea Lawlor and Chris Brookmyre! ‘Smart, snarky, funny, to die for!’ Sarah Smith, author of the New York Times Notable Book The Vanished Child ‘You’ll thank me for recommending this book to you’ S. J. Rozan, author of Paper Son ‘Quick-fire plotting, snappy dialogue and a love of hardboiled crime make this really entertaining’ Crime Time

Share in all of the adventures (and misadventures!) of the lovable Isabel Bookbinder’s worklife—and love life—in this special new eBook collection. The Glamorous (Double) Life of Isabel Bookbinder Although Isabel Bookbinder, a twenty-seven-year-old assistant at the Saturday Mercury newspaper in London, may spend most of her time measuring newspaper column inches, she’s well on her way to becoming a bestselling author. She gets up at dawn to work on her novel (well, sort of) and she even has a fabulous mentor—a bestselling but increasingly eccentric author. But when she inadvertently exposes a political sex scandal and her name becomes known for all the wrong reasons, her glamorous double life starts to spin out of control. Fabulously Fashionable Isabel Bookbinder is back, and this time, she just knows that her true calling is to be a designer. So when she bags a job with Nancy ‘Fashion Aristocracy’ Tavistock, the editor at a top fashion magazine, Isabel is sure her career is finally on track. Within days she’s putting the final touches on her debut collection. And on top of that she might even have fallen in love. Yet nothing ever runs smoothly for Isabel, and fabulously fashionably as her life is, it soon seems to be spiraling a little out of her control. Confetti Confidential Having realized that fashion design may not actually be the best profession for her, Isabel Bookbinder has made another career move—this time, into the world of wedding planning. She’s landed a big celebrity client, and she’s moved in with her perfect lawyer boyfriend, Will. So it seems like the universe is finally aligning in her favor—that is, until Will becomes increasingly reluctant to discuss their future... Will Isabel be able to pull off the wedding that could make or break her career? Can she ever measure up in her father’s eyes? And will she ever have a wedding day all of her own?

Book one in a mystery series featuring a queer, nameless amateur detective is ambisexual Kinsey Millhone meets Canadian Lisbeth Salander Rescued from torpor and poverty by the need to help a good friend deal with the murder of her beloved granddaughter, our downsized-social-worker protagonist and her cat, Bunnywit, are jolted into a harsh, street-wise world of sex, lies, and betrayal, to which they respond with irony, wit, intelligence (except for the cat), and tenacity. With judicious use of the Oxford comma, pop culture trivia, common mystery tropes, and a keen eye for deceit, our protagonist swaggers through the mean streets of — yes, a Canadian city! — and discovers that what seems at first to be just a grotty little street killing is actually the surface of a grandiose and glittering set of criminal schemes.
