Writers' Block

(2014)
(A Murder of Magpies)
(The first book in the Sam Clair series)
A novel by

 
It's just another day at the office for book editor Samantha Clair. Checking jacket copy for howlers, wondering how to break it to her star novelist that her latest effort is utterly unpublishable, lunch scheduled with gossipy author Kit Lowell, whose new book will deliciously dish the dirt on the fashion industry. But little does she know how much trouble Kit's book is about to be. Before it even goes to print. When police inspector Field turns up at the venerable offices of Timmins and Ross, asking questions about an undelivered package that was addressed to Sam, she knows something is wrong. The messenger sent to deliver the package was murdered, and then Kit goes missing. Suddenly Sam's nine-to-five life is turned upside down, and she is propelled into a criminal investigation. Someone doesn't want Kit's scandalous manuscript published, and unless Sam can put the pieces together in time they'll do anything to stop it.

With her deliciously fun, cleverly written debut novel, acclaimed author Judith Flanders introduces readers to an enormously enjoyable, too-smart-for-her-own-good new amateur sleuth as well as a colorful cast of characters, including Sam's witty assistant, her effortlessly glamorous mother, and the handsome Inspector Field. A whipsmart, impeccably crafted mystery, this tremendously entertaining novel will have readers flying through the pages.
