An entertaining mystery about a literary festival where authors and critics gather to give talks about their books or their genre, etc.
When a famous (and often brutally cruel) critic is murdered, Francis Meadows, a crime writer, can't help but begin his own investigation.
A nice light read that provides an interesting look at the literary scene and an engaging writer/sleuth playing amateur detective.
Who killed the critic who killed so many careers? And who killed the young woman who had been filming and interviewing some of the people who knew him?
A cozy with a little spice. Forget the cover pic. Poor choice.
