The Girl Who Did Say NoDeath Sentences: Short Stories to Die For, 38by David Handler

The exciting new title in the Death Sentences series of mysteries set in the world of books. Bestselling author David Handler gives us another tale featuring his popular creation, writer Stewart Hoag.

Stewart 'Hoagy' Hoag used to be a celebrated author – he became friends with celebrities, was a New York City A-Lister, and even married a famous actress. But, after a serious case of writer's block, Hoag suddenly seems to lose it all, and is left making a living as a ghostwriter, with nobody but his loyal basset hound Lulu by his side.

Hoag's latest project is to transcribe the extensive diary collection of recently deceased actress Anna Childress. As it turns out, he's not the only one after the secretive diaries. Hoag and Lulu get mixed up with powerful Hollywood execs who don't want the diaries to be revealed to the public – perhaps for good reason.

David Handler was born and raised in Los Angeles. He began his career in New York as a journalist, and has since written thirteen novels about the witty and dapper celebrity ghostwriter Stewart Hoag, including the Edgar and American Mystery Award-winning The Man Who Would Be F. Scott Fitzgerald and the newest entry The Man in the White Linen Suit. David's short stories have earned him a Derringer Award nomination and other honours. He was a member of the original writing staff that created the Emmy Award-winning sitcom Kate and Allie and has continued to write extensively for television and films. He lives in a 200-year-old carriage house in Old Lyme, Connecticut.

Latest in the DEATH SENTENCES library of novellas – exciting mysteries by the biggest names in crime fiction, all set in the world of books.
