Simon Kirby-Jones Mysteries #2

From the New York Times bestselling author of the Cat in the Stacks Mystery Series, a traditional British village cozy mystery series... with a twist!

"Agatha Award-winning author Dean James has penned a chatty charmer of a first book in this new cozy-with-a-kink series. Posted To Death will appeal especially to those who enjoy their murders mixed with mirth."
- I Love A Mystery


"A delightful English village whodunit filled with some of the most eccentric characters you'll ever run across in a mystery novel."
- The Denver Post


Simon Kirby-Jones, amateur sleuth, gay American vampire living in the cozy British village of Snupperton Mumsley, is a respected historian and also, under a well-guarded pseudonym, a bestselling crime writer.

When he's invited to an exclusive writer's conference he's astonished - and outraged - to see that "Dorina Darlington" is the featured speaker. Clearly the woman is an imposter, because Simon is the real Dorina Darlington! And when the fake Dorina turns up dead, Simon suspects he's next on the killer's list...

There are definite advantages to being undead - little fear of being murdered is high on the list. But Simon is as nosy as he is kind, so he decides to unearth the true killer before any of his fellow writers fall prey!

"A worthy and cozy village mystery you can really sink your teeth into."
- The Houston Chronicle


"A wickedly funny send-up of the classic cozy British mystery. Dame Agatha would be rolling in her grave, unless she's already out of it."
- Nancy Pickard
